In a hopefully cheaper fashion than the Chevy Volt, Suzuki is offering a plug in hybrid version of their Swift compact at this year’s Tokyo Auto Show.
If the photos are any indication, Suzuki has spent their money putting an expensive powertrain into a cheap car rather than blowing loads of money on a new, cheap car and then building a costly powertrain. No word yet on pricing or total range, but the Swift will manage 19 miles on electric before switching to internal combustion.
No details on the Suzuki Swift EV Hybrid’s powertrain have been released.
