How do you make a car as economical as possible? With thoughtful and clean technology, a low weight and of course a smart driving style. Suzuki applies the latest form of hybrid technology in almost all models. This means that the engine needs even less fuel, while at the same time more power is available. That may sound too good to be true, but it is really true.
With the term hybrid, many people think of a car with an extra electric motor and a heavy battery pack. But also an extremely economical car. The latter is any Suzuki, but without heavy batteries or a large electric motor. Suzuki Smart Hybrid works differently, something like the pedal assistance on an electric bicycle. It gives an extra push in the difficult moments.
Electric auxiliary engine
Suzuki Smart Hybrid is as simple as it is ingenious. The already economical fuel engine is assisted by an electric 10 kW / 14 hp auxiliary engine. For example, during acceleration, when a lot of force is required, which normally results in extra fuel consumption. With this compact assistant you can easily accelerate, but you have no extra consumption.
Recover braking energy
Where does that electric motor get its power from? Fair question. By feeding much of the braking energy back to the extra battery. The electric auxiliary motor acts as a dynamo during braking. The generated power is then stored and can be used again a little later to power the electric motor. A very smart, closed system. Charging is therefore not necessary, it goes without saying.
