Suzuki has unveiled the Swift Plug-in Hybrid Concept at the Tokyo Motor Show.

Effectively a series hybrid, the Swift features a 55 kW electric motor, a battery, and a small engine. Power comes from a 2.66kWh lithium-ion battery, which enables the car to travel up to 20 km (12.4 miles) on electricity alone. When the battery becomes low, a 0.66-liter engine (with an output of 40kW) recharges it. Like all plug-in hybrids, the Swift can also be recharged via a standard household outlet.

While Suzuki is staying mum on the possibility of production, everything appears pretty feasible.
