To stay on top of the game in the fuel efficiency war, Maruti will soon launch some of its models with an innovative mild hybrid tech. The carmaker is said to be working with parent company, Suzuki to develop hybrid and electrical vehicle technology, with an aim to reduce fuel consumption and emissions.


Suzuki’s SHVS mild-hybrid system employs an integrated starter generator (ISG) which provides assistance to the engine, using a motor to generate power when the vehicle accelerates. This system also comes with brake energy recuperation which helps in recovering energy when the vehicle decelerates.


This system is likely to be first seen in diesel models. The company has also hinted at bringing its new Boosterjet engine to its Indian line-up in the near future. The Boosterjet engine is a downsized direct-injection turbo petrol motor that could be first seen here in Maruti's upcoming YRA hatchback.
