Hybrid Maruti Swift Dzire

The plug in hybrid of the Swift hatchback from Suzuki is expected to be rolled out in Japan by the end of current year. The Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism stamped its approval on the plug-in Swift proposal 12th May. The Suzuki Swift Hybrid will be deriving power from a 0.66-liter gasoline engine that will propel the electric power train which is capable of producing a peak power of 55 KW. Backing the electric motor will be the 2.66 KWh lithium ion battery pack that can easily run up to 15 kms without draining once it is charged to the full. The time taken to charge the battery is as less as 1.5 hours with a power outlet of 100V and 1.0 hours with the power outlet of 200V. Sanyo Electric made an announcement that states that the lithium-ion battery system powering the Suzuki Swift hybrid plug-in will be supplied by the company which might pave the way for the Sanyo electric battery pack as well.
