Suzuki Swift Plug-in Hybrid

Suzuki will present a new model at the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show. The Suzuki booth will actually bring together automobiles, motorcycles, power-assisted bicycles and electric wheelchairs under an overall theme of small cars for a gig future. The center of attention will be the Swift Plug-in Hybrid, a model incorporating a propulsion motor, a battery and an engine-powered generator. When the battery runs low, an engine of a kind usually used in mini-vehicles powers a generator that charges the battery. This means that the model not only meets the needs of the many people who drive no more than 20 km each day, but also saves users from worrying about being stranded or having to search for a charging stand if the battery runs low. This model is perfect for the one that want to help the environment while following their daily schedule.

The Swift Plug-in Hybrid is a series hybrid incorporating a propulsion motor, a battery, and an engine-powered generator. Reflecting a close focus on daily convenience, it`s designed primarily to be driven only on electric power on short day-to-day drives.

For the short distances involved in daily shopping or commuting, the Swift Plug-in Hybrid is powered by a battery that`s charged from a household mains socket. When the battery runs low, an engine of a kind usually used in minivehicles powers a generator that charges the battery. This means the Swift Plug-in Hybrid not only meets the needs of the many people who drive no more than 20km each day but also saves users from worrying about being stranded or having to search for a charging stand if the battery runs low.

With the Swift Plug-in Hybrid, anyone can easily do something for the environment while enjoying daily mobility.
