There has been no change in its transmission as well and it is as manual as before. Its battery pack has been replaced by a fuel tank and the company says that even after all these changes, the weight of the car has also been balanced according to the OEM standard. The car’s boot space is the same as before, due to the motor replacing the engine and some other essential parts and fitting the battery pack instead of the fuel tank.
As per the information shared in the video description, the Maruti Suzuki Dzire EV is powered by a 15KW power motor, which is capable of generating a peak power of 35KW. This motor generates a maximum torque of 170 Nm. The company has built 13 KWh, 15 KWh and 18 KWh capacity battery packs for this kit.
