While its arch rival Honda Motors has recently unveiled Micro Commuter Concept electric car in the Japanese market, the Suzuki Motor Corporation is planning to launch a series of electric vehicles in the Indian market.

While speaking to PTI on the sidelines of recently inaugurated Tokyo Motor Show, Mr. Toshihiro Suzuki, Suzuki Motor Corporation, Director and Executive Vice President, Executive General Manager (Corporate Planning Office), said, "It is under consideration to launch electric vehicles in India."

The company however, sees the lack of infrastructure for the electric cars in India as a big challenge for selling electric vehicles in the country. Mr. Suzuki added that the company cannot tell what the specifications are. There is possibility, but the only problem is infrastructure in terms of electric plugs, he said.
