The companies said Suzuki will produce the electric vehicles and supply some to Toyota, which will provide technical support. The first phase of 500 vehicles is being supplied by the two successful bidders - Tata Motors and Mahindra and Mahindra.

Suzuki has already announced that it intends to construct a lithium-ion battery plant along with its partners in Gujarat, where it now operates a manufacturing plant supplying automobiles exclusively to its Indian arm Maruti Suzuki. In addition, electric motors and other major components will be locally procured for the production of EVs in India. India is planning to shift to pure electric vehicles by 2030 and Toyota and Suzuki is well prepared for the challenge. India is the world's fifth biggest auto market, and auto companies see a lot of potential considering the Indian government's ambitious plans to convert the entire vehicle fleet in the country to electric by 2030. Toyota President Akio Toyoda said in September the company is a "little bit late" in the EV segment, even as rival automakers rush into the segment before China's cap-and-trade policy linked to zero- and low-emission vehicles kick in from 2019. Prior in the month, Toyota Motor, Mazda and Denso made the declaration of a dare to create key innovation plans for batteries and engines of various sort of vehicles. Toyota's joint venture partners in the China are FAW Group Corp and Guangzhou Automobile Group.
