Suzuki's Swift Plug-In Hybrid Prototype At Geneva

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND - theirEarth took this photograph of Suzuki's Swift Plug-In Hybrid concept car at the Geneva Motor Show (March 3, 2010). The Suzuki Swift Plug-In Hybrid uses a 658 cc 40 kW motor that operates full capacity as an electric generator to charge the Swift's 2.66 kWh 260V lithium-ion battery pack. The design of the Swift Plug-In Hybrid is such that the car can be driven up to 20km (12.43 miles) off of a fully charged battery pack before the 658cc gasoline engine starts up to provide electric power in generator mode.

The Suzuki Swift Plug-In Hybrid seats five people and is engineered in a front-wheel drive arrangement with the gasoline (petrol) engine-generator located at the front of the car. The Swift Hybrid's battery pack can be charged off a standard household outlet.
