Suzuki Swift EV Hybrid Concept

The Suzuki booth at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show will feature automobiles that highlight Suzuki’s uncompromising focus on meeting contemporary needs, offering new kinds of value, and delivering genuine pleasure to customers.

In line with Suzuki’s unparalleled expertise in small cars, the theme of Suzuki’s booth will be “small cars for a big future”. Suzuki cars for today, the near future, and the more distant future will highlight the fuel economy, user-friendliness, innovation, brisk performance, and exciting styling that are possible within smaller dimensions - and the huge possibilities that small cars will realize in years to come.

Swift EV Hybrid: a compact electric vehicle with an engine-driven generator

The Swift EV Hybrid is Suzuki’s vision of an ecocar that embodies advances on the Swift Range Extender.

A compact vehicle such as the Suzuki Swift is typically driven 20−30km per day in Japan. The Swift EV Hybrid can cover such distances on battery power alone. And it can extend its range using an engine-driven generator.

Compared with an electric vehicle that depends entirely on battery power, the Swift EV Hybrid has a smaller battery that's quicker to charge, weighs less, uses fewer resources, and costs less.

The Swift EV Hybrid is scheduled to be exhibited as the Swift Range Extender at motor shows in some countries.
