Milestone reached within just 16 months of sales.

Maruti Suzuki has announced that the company has reached a new milestone of selling more than 1,00,000 units of its SHVS (Suzuki Smart Hybrid Vehicles) models in India.

Maruti Ciaz SHVS
The SHVS technology is offered in the Maruti Ciaz diesel (pictured) and Maruti Ertiga diesel.

Maruti Suzuki introduced SHVS technology in India with the Maruti Ciaz on 1 September 2015 and a month later started offering the Maruti Ertiga with it. It uses an Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) and a battery to supplement the combustion engine’s power. The ISG recovers energy from the car’s deceleration, and this energy is stored in a battery which assists the engine’s idle-stop start function and helps the engine during acceleration.

The SHVS technology is offered in the Maruti Ciaz diesel and Maruti Ertiga diesel which is powered by the D13A 1.25-litre DDiS engine that produces 66 kW (88.47 hp) at 4,000 rpm and 200 Nm of torque at 1,750 rpm. The BS IV-compliant engine is paired to a 5-speed manual transmission. The fuel economy rating of the Ertiga diesel SHVS and Ciaz diesel SHVS is 24.52 km/l and 28.09 km/l respectively.
