Buying a Maruti Suzuki car with Smart Hybrid technology is a great idea. This revolutionary technology helps enhance the car’s performance as well as fuel efficiency through its three main functions - Idle Start Stop, Brake Energy Regeneration and Torque Assist.
Brake Energy Regeneration works during deceleration – it kicks in to store the converted electric energy in the batteries. This essentially means that the dual battery setup is self-charging in nature.
Torque Assist supplements the engine’s power during acceleration to reduce engine load while Idle Start Stop saves fuel in stop-go traffic. Thanks to all this, Smart Hybrid technology delivers better performance, ensures longer engine life, enhances fuel efficiency and reduces emissions.
Available in NEXA Grand Vitara, Intelligent Electric Hybrid technology makes the SUV deliver enhanced performance, better fuel efficiency, quieter driving characteristics, and lower emissions.
This full hybrid system can drive in pure petrol mode, battery mode, and also harness the best of these two modes for superior drivability and fuel efficiency.
Yes, for naturally aspirated engines, Maruti Suzuki offers Smart Hybrid Technology in Ertiga and Brezza within the Arena lineup, and for NEXA cars, it is available in the Ciaz, XL6, Grand Vitara, and Fronx.
Helping reduce the load on the engine, Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) replaces the conventional starter motor and alternator in Maruti Suzuki Smart Hybrid cars. The ISG fulfils a number of functions that help the car deliver better performance and fuel efficiency. At the time of braking or deceleration, the ISG converts the brake energy into electrical energy and stores it in the dual battery setup. This stored energy is used for the Idle Start Stop function to conserve fuel in stop-go traffic and also in Torque Assist where ISG supplements the engine during acceleration to reduce engine stress and improve fuel economy.
