Indian government to use Maruti Suzuki Swift hybrid
There is no doubt that the future will see number of electric vehicles on road increase as compared to vehicles powered by petrol or diesel. Governments around the world are promoting the use of such vehicles in order to reduce pollution and injecting other harmful gasses into our atmosphere.
Due to the use of the battery, overall weight is increased by about 130 kgs. Official ARAI mileage results are yet to be revealed, but Maruti internal results stand at 48.2 kmpl when in hybrid mode. When running in complete electric mode, the car will have a range of 25.2 kms.
The project will be implemented this fiscal, during which Maruti Suzuki will supply undisclosed number of these Swift hybrid cars to the Indian government. More details are scheduled to be revealed over the next quarter.
