New Delhi: Marking its foray into the new eco-friendly technology segment, country's largest carmaker Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) today launched the mild hybrid version of mid-sized sedan Ciaz priced between Rs 8.23 lakh and Rs 10.17 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

The model, Ciaz SHVS will be available only in the diesel version that is powered by a 1.3 litre engine. It uses a starter generator and an advanced high capacity battery that stores energy generated while decelerating or braking and uses it to power an electric motor during acceleration thereby helping in enhanced fuel efficiency.

"Through Ciaz Smart Hybrid, we are deploying technology to benefit customers and the environment. The vehicle is also special because it helps us participate in India's vision of promoting hybrid and electric vehicles," MSI Managing Director and CEO Kenichi Ayukawa told reporters here.

As per the company, the car would offer a fuel efficiency of 28.09 km/litre. "With smart hybrid, Ciaz has gained the top slot in fuel efficiency of 28.09 km per litre, and is now the country's most fuel efficient car," Ayukawa said.

In October, the company had launched Ciaz in both petrol and diesel options. The latter variant has been discontinued to be replaced by the hybrid version. The company will continue to sell the petrol version. At present the petrol variant is available in a range of Rs 7.23 lakh to Rs 9.64 lakh.
