Maruti Suzuki Swift 2017 Hybrid PreviewDubbed ‘Range Extender’ the hybrid variant of Swift was previously being considered to be supplied to the government of India, although this pilot project was shelved for unknown reason, but it seems that the Japanese auto giant is now contemplating to launch it in India for commercial use. This announcement came after the government inducted the FAME India scheme. Power is expected to be derived from a low displacement petrol engine which is likely to generate pretty decent power output something against its low capacity stance. There will be three modes on which the hatchback will be driven around. The launch date is far away, speaking hypothetically, launch is likely to happen two years from now. On the price front, the hatchback will be priced more than the regular version but we believe that MSI will tag the hatchback competitively.
Maruti Suzuki Swift Hybrid Range Extender Engine & TransmissionSources close to development have revealed that the Maruti Suzuki Swift Hybrid is likely to get a low displacement, 658cc, three cylinder, petrol engine. The gasoline mill is expected to work in conjunction with a permanent magnet synchronous motor. Power expected to be generated by the low displacement petrol engine is around 73 Bhp which is good enough despite the fact that it has a small capacity. The hatchback is driven by three modes including series hybrid, parallel hybrid and all-electric. In the series hybrid mode, the petrol engine turns into a generator which powers the lithium ion battery which in turn powers the electric motor. While in the parallel mode, the petrol as well as the electric motor together power the wheels. Possessing a kerb weight of 1600 kg, the vehicle takes around 1.5 hours for one complete charge.
Maruti Suzuki Swift Hybrid Range Extender Expected MileageOne of the highlights of the hybrid car version of Swift is the expected fuel economy, it is being speculated that Sift Hybrid will be able to run up to 48.2 km per litre. The electric driving range of the vehicle is around 25.5 kms.
Maruti Suzuki Swift Hybrid Range Extender Expected PricePricing is yet another vital factor that determines fate of a car in India, the Swift hybrid is likely to be priced a tad more than the regular version of the hatchback for obvious reasons but it will for sure be tagged within affordable range. Sources have revealed that Maruti Suzuki Swift Hybrid price in India could range between Rs 7 lakh to Rs 8 lakh.
Maruti Suzuki Swift Hybrid Range Extender Expected launch dateAs for the launch of this highly anticipated hatchback is concerned, it is believed that there is still time for that. If we go by rumours, it suggests that Maruti Suzuki India could roll out Swift Hybrid in domestic market between Oct 2018 to Dec 2018. It means there are still two years for that and we can expect to see glimpse of the hatchback at the 2016 Auto Expo.
