Suzuki is working on multiple electric vehicles for the Indian market, and the first EV to be launched in India will be the Suzuki Burgman Electric. But, besides the electric maxi-scooter, Suzuki is also said to be developing an electric version of its best-selling 125cc scooter — the Suzuki Access 125. Expected to be christened the Suzuki Access Electric, the EV is likely to make its official debut sometime in late 2024 or early 2025.
Regarding its styling, the Suzuki Access Electric might carry a similar design language as compared to its ICE counterpart. However, we can expect it to get some retro styling elements to make it stand out amongst its rivals. In terms of features, the Access Electric could come equipped with an LED headlamp, a fully digital instrument cluster, and connected tech. We can expect higher variants to be offered with a touchscreen display, complete with navigation maps and more.
In terms of specifications, although the official figures are unknown, the power figures will mostly be on par with what the rivals offer. As for its range, the Suzuki Access Electric is likely to offer a range of 100-150km on a single charge.
Regarding the cycle parts, the Access Electric is likely to ride on 12-inch alloy wheels, wrapped in tubeless tyres. The suspension setup will comprise telescopic forks at the front and a mono-shock at the rear with preload-adjustability. The braking duties will be handled by a disc brake up front and a drum brake at the back. As for safety, the scooter will feature a combined braking system as standard.
The Suzuki Access Electric will compete against the likes of the TVS iQube, Ola Electric S1, Ather 450X, Bajaj Chetak Electric, and the upcoming Honda Activa Electric. As for its pricing, Access Electric is likely to be priced in the range of Rs 1 lakh to Rs 1.5 lakh (ex-showroom).
