Trending car news Maruti Suzuki is planning to replace lead batteries with lithium ion batteries in its premium cars. The premium models from the Maruti line up falling above Swiftwill get Lithium ion batteries from Gujarat by financial year 2021.

The batteries will be sourcedfrom Suzuki’s upcoming battery plant in Gujarat. Maruti is expecting a two-fold effect from this decision. Using lithium ion battery is cost effective when compared with lead batteries. Also the plant in Gujarat will be able to achieve better revenue on sales by doing this.

Suzuki is also planning to use these batteries in Suzuki’s electric two wheelers that will be introduced in India soon.The company seems to have plans to launch an electric two wheeler in India by 2020.

Almost all electric vehicle brands in India are using imported batteries in their vehicles. Maruti will be the first brand using lithium ion batteries in premium models.

When it comes to cost, lead batteries cost around Rs.10000-12000,while lithium ion batteries cost between Rs.16000-17000. But when the lifecycle of lead battery is just one year, lithium ion runs for five years. The prices of lead batteries are increasing every day and are expected to be somewhat equal to the price of lithium ion by 2021. As Maruti is planning to use its own product, the cost benefit will be high.

The Union Government also discourages the usage of lead batteries due to environmental reasons.
