The New Smart Technology with an Integrated Starter Kit and Torque Assist feature by Maruti Suzuki helps in saving the precious fuel and better engine performance while being budget friendly. This technology can serve the Indian crowd where the electrical vehicle infrastructure remains expensive both in buying and functioning of the vehicles.

As the world grapples with the ramification of industrialization and overuse of fossil fuel, the term green makes it way to all the developed and developing countries. As one of the fastest growing economies in the world, the onus of being green and sustainable lies with India too. This, including the Paris agreement and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that have been adopted by India, it is imperative that measures are taken to create an ecosystem which are both development and sustainability and green initiatives friendly.

Moreover, since India is still in our developmental phase, it can’t directly bypass the phases that other countries have gone through in their manufacturing sector. In the bid to be sustainable, we need a midway to bridge the gap between the technology we are currently using and technology of the future. The one very good example of this is the hybrid technology introduced by Maruti Suzuki. The electric car technology that is being introduced in India is still not affordable for the masses and the internal combustion engines are bringing our carbon emissions to all time high at an alarming rate.

With Smart Hybrid Technology by Maruti Suzuki, the customer gets the option to be green without the ramifications seen on their wallet and if one thing that sells in India is fuel economy and affordable technology. This Smart Hybrid Technology comes under the government’s scheme of Faster Adoption and Manufacture of Hybrid and Electric Vehicles (FAME). This technology uses an Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) with a lithium-ion battery system which stores the energy from the braking or deceleration of the vehicle, which is known as regenerative braking. This happens as this system will convert the kinetic energy of the deceleration and convert to electrical energy.

Also, adding to this, the vehicle will go into idle mode when the car is at a traffic light or you have stopped for any or all traffic jams you have been stuck at. The ISG will start soundlessly when the conditions of the vehicle to restart are met again, the vehicle will, with the converted electrical energy, start routinely in both manual and automatic with the help of the motor part of the ISG known as the Torque assist. This will also reduce emissions of the vehicle with optimum fuel consumption.

This technology has been integrated in various Suzuki vehicles for all segments to give the consumer tons of options, such as sedans like Baleno and Ciaz, and SUVs like Ertiga, S-Cross, Vitara Brezza, and XL6. Anyone who is looking to change their vehicle for smarter and greener technology, while being budget conscious, can give this technology by Maruti Suzuki a serious thought.
