Maruti Suzuki India Limited
has announced that its Smart Hybrid vehicles – Ciaz SHVS and Ertiga SHVS – have
crossed cumulative sales of 100,000 units in February 2017. This marks the success of
Maruti Suzuki’s efforts in hybrid and electric mobility in India.
Maruti Suzuki introduced
India’s first Smart Hybrid Vehicle, Ciaz SHVS on Sept 1, 2015. It subsequently
introduced the technology in Ertiga Diesel in Oct 2015. Smart Hybrid Vehicle by
Suzuki (SHVS) is a technology which uses an Integrated Starter Generator (ISG)
and an advanced high capacity battery to supplement the engine’s power. SHVS
technology makes it more efficient than the conventional set-up and saves
energy while decelerating/braking. Ciaz and Ertiga Smart Hybrid participate in
Government of India’s FAME India scheme, which aims to promote Faster Adoption
and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric vehicles in India.
Ciaz SHVS, with a certified
fuel efficiency of 28.09km/l, tops the mileage chart in India. Ertiga SHVS,
with 24.52 km/l, has set new bench marks in fuel efficiency in its category.
Both vehicles are market leaders in their respective segments and illustrate
the growing preference of Indian customers for greener and cleaner technologies
like Smart Hybrids. SHVS equipped vehicles account for over 60% of volume of
the two models.
