Suzuki will be showing its Swift Plug-in Hybrid concept at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show next month.
First unveiled at Tokyo Motor Show last October, the Suzuki Swift Plug-In Hybrid features a series hybrid system that incorporates a small 600cc internal combustion engine, mated to an electric motor.
Like Chevy Volt, the Swift Plug-In Hybrid uses the electric motor to move the car, and the engine acts as a generator to help produce power.
The engine will generate 54-horsepower and the electric motor will produce 74-horsepower. A range of up to 12 miles (20km) on electric power alone will help keep emissions low.
The car can be recharged using a domestic plug socket, while an on-board generator charges the batteries when the power level drops.
Suzuki’s new flagship Kizashi sedan and new-look Grand Vitara will also make their European debut at the Geneva Motor Show.
