Maruti it seems has a lot of surprises in store for us in the coming months and one of them could be a Swift Diesel Hybrid. We have heard some time back Maruti was conducting a survey and research on the feasibility and adoption of green technology in India.
It had created a survey for its customers on whether they would prefer the buy the 'Swift Green'. Yes, Maruti is planning a diesel hyrbid of the Swift and it will be called as 'Swift Green'. The survey had a comparison between the regular diesel Swift and the Swift diesel hybrid.
Plus we even have the efficiency figures of the Swift diesel hybrid which is 25.3 kmpl which is an improvement over the mileage of the regular diesel version. To put it in numbers this is a 15 % improvement in the efficiency plus a 15 % cut in emissions and a 10 % increased in power. The final bit of info is the price and from what we have heard it is going to be around Rs 6.3 lakh to Rs 6.6 lakh which roughly is around a lakh more than the regular Swift diesel.
The Maruti Suzuki Swift Green will also be sold in select dealerships which would make it sort of an exclusive product.
