Maruti Suzuki showcased the all-electric concept four wheel drive sports utility vehicle e-Survivor at the Auto Expo 2018.
It is the company’s first attempt at showcasing autonomous driving technology as the vehicle is equipped with this capability. E-Survivor has ladder frame and lightweight compact body which helps to achieve outstanding drivability and durability on rugged roads. It has got a set of four in-wheel electric motors that controls the four wheels independently. The motors enable fine control of the wheels depending on road or driving conditions. It allows for on-the-spot turning and achieves outstanding mobility – movements that were not possible with conventional 4WDs.
The vehicle can also be switched to manual mode for off-road driving at any time. It has a spherical monitor on which the vehicle’s status and the road conditions can be checked at a glance.
It also has a navigation system and a wide monitor for displaying online information and images from vehicle cameras. Smartphones and a variety of other electronic devices can be connected to the vehicle to display information on the topography, nearby vehicles, weather, and more.
