Why it makes sense.The Suzuki HYBRID range

Here at Suzuki we are proud of the fact we have hybrid technologies across our range.

Mild hybrids

  • Engine auto stop - when the engine is stopped (for example at traffic lights), electrical components are powered by the batteries, saving fuel.
  • Restart - the mild Hybrid system functions as a starter motor to restart the engine quietly and smoothly .
  • Take-off/Acceleration - the mild Hybrid system can assist the engine when starting from a standstill or when accelerating, improving fuel efficiency compared to non-hybrid Suzuki systems.
  • Deceleration – the mild Hybrid system uses deceleration energy to generate electricity and efficiently charge the vehicle’s batteries.

SWIFT SPORT, VITARA & S-CROSS

Swift Sport Rear Badge and Headlights

Mild hybrids

Swift Sport, Vitara and S-Cross mild Hybrid models gain some additional features that enhance engine responsiveness with increased torque output. This gives a more responsive driving feel during acceleration. Moreover, the electric motor idles the engine and eliminates fuel use during deceleration to further enhance fuel efficiency compared to our previous non-hybrid Suzuki systems.

  • Deceleration – the mild Hybrid system uses deceleration energy to generate electricity and efficiently charge the vehicle’s batteries.
  • Torque boost - the mild Hybrid system makes acceleration smoother by adding torque from the electric motor to the engine torque until turbocharging kicks in.
  • Electric motor idling - when the clutch is disengaged for deceleration and the engine revs down to idling speed, the electric motor idles the engine and eliminates fuel use.

SWACE

Full hybrid

  • Stop - all units stop to prevent wasted energy consumption
  • Start - the electric motor quietly and smoothly starts off the vehicle
  • Low Speeds - the electric motor drives the vehicle without using the engine
  • Normal Driving - the engine and motor (powered by the engine via generator) drive the vehicle. If the full hybrid battery’s charge is low, the engine charges the battery via generator while driving
  • Sharp Acceleration - the engine and motor drive the vehicle. Electricity is supplied to the motor from both the engine (via generator) and full hybrid battery
  • Deceleration - the motor uses wheel rotation to generate electricity and charge the battery

Suzuki Across Plug In Hybrid Technology

ACROSS

Plug-in hybrid

  • Stop - all units stop to prevent wasted energy consumption
  • Start - the electric motor quietly and smoothly starts off the vehicle
  • Low Speeds - the electric motor drives the vehicle without using the engine
  • Normal Driving - the motor (powered by the battery, with additional power provided by the engine via generator) drive the vehicle
  • High-speed driving - the electric motor continues to drive the vehicle and uses additional power from the engine if required
  • Deceleration - the generator uses wheel rotation to generate electricity and charge the battery

PLUG IN TO CHARGE

YOU DON’T ALWAYS HAVE TO

If you’re considering Hybrid, you might be worried about the need to charge your vehicle and change the way you go about your journey. But the reality is you can drive any car in the Suzuki hybrid range just like you would any other car.

All cars in the Suzuki hybrid range, except from the Across Plug-in, are self-charging - using clever technology, they take the kinetic energy which is lost during braking and convert it into electricity to charge the battery.

This means you can enjoy the improved performance and efficiency of your hybrid vehicle without any inconvenience or change to the way you drive. And even with the Plug-in Across, you always have peace of mind when on long journeys as you have the reassurance of the powerful 2.5-litre petrol engine when needed.
