Suzuki Next-Gen Hybrid Technology: Road to full electrification
Maruti Suzuki will accomplish on order of xEV technologies to develop clean solutions for India. This was to stimulate the electrification of powertrains in India. In 2018, at the Auto Expo exhibition- The Suzuki Hybrid system displayed signifies an essential part of the Maruti Suzuki vision of greener mobility.
A working model of the next generation Suzuki Hybrid system (HEV) was showcased on the Maruti Suzuki pavilion. This next generation hybrid system has high efficiency and low emission rate, which gives superior driving performance and acceleration.
This demonstrated the Suzuki Hybrid system would reduce emissions and fuel consumption that is a part of the market not broadcasted by EVs.
This working model uses a combination of drawing energy from petroleum fuels and Li-ion battery and the conventional engine and electric motor to power the wheels and gives multiple benefits of reduction in emission and energy security. A strong hybrid system will provide various functions like torque assist, EV running as a combination, regenerative braking, and will achieve higher fuel efficiency.
