Over 1 lakh Maruti Suzuki Smart Hybrid cars sold in India

The Smart Hybrid Vehicle technology by Suzuki (SHVS) has helped Maruti Suzuki further strengthen its foothold in the Indian market. The country’s largest automaker first introduced the technology in the Ciaz sedan in Spetember 2015 and later introduced it on the Ertiga diesel on October 2015. Speaking loud of its success, the company sold over 1 lakh SHVS units of the Ertiga and the Ciaz this month.  

Maruti Suzuki’s SHVS technology utilises Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) and an advanced high capacity battery to supplement the engine’s power. Speaking about the achievement, Maruti Suzuki Executive Director marketing and Sales, R S Kalsi, said, "As we move towards hybrid and electric cars we see this as a first important step in this space. Both Ciaz and Ertiga SHVS are high on fuel efficiency, come with reduced running costs and lower levels of Co2 emission, thus making these popular among customers. The response we have received for SHVS equipped Ciaz and Ertiga encourages us to continue to invest in new technologies that support the environment while benefiting the customer."

In order to promote Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric (FAME) vehicles in India, Maruti Suzuki got the Ciaz and Ertiga Smart Hybrid to participate in government of India’s FAME India scheme. Reports indicate that SHVS cars account for over 60 per cent of overall sales for the Ertiga as well as the Ciaz. Currently, the automaker offers alternate fuel option in six models, namely Alto 800, Alto K10, Celerio, WagonR, Eeco and Ertiga with i-GPI CNG engine technology.
