Integrated Starter Generator

Idle Start Stop : Belt driven ISG ensures a quick and silent restarting of the engine as soon as clutch is pressed using the stored energy from the advanced dual battery system.

Torque Assist: It assists engine power during acceleration using the energy stored in the advanced dual battery system.

Brake Energy Regeneration : The ISG converts the energy from braking/deceleration of the car and stores it in the advanced dual battery system

Advanced Dual Battery System

High Capacity Lead Acid & Li-ion Battery : The advanced dual battery system stores the energy generated while braking/decelerating, provide power to ISG that assists during acceleration and idle start/stop operation of the car. This combination results into a peppy, powerful & fuel efficient vehicle.

Advanced Dual Battery System

High Capacity Lead Acid & Li-ion Battery : The advanced dual battery system stores the energy generated while braking/decelerating, provide power to ISG that assists during acceleration and idle start/stop operation of the car. This combination results into a peppy, powerful & fuel efficient vehicle.

Smart Hybrid Technology

Smart Hybrid is an advanced technology that helps increase fuel efficiency and enhances driving performance. The engine automatically stops when idle and silently starts when the optimal conditions are met in manual and automatic transmissions. It comes with a dual battery setup including a Lithium Ion Battery. These high capacity batteries store the energy generated during braking to assist the engine's idle start-stop and the torque assist functions. The energy stored in the Lithium-ion battery assists during acceleration which helps engine in providing optimal acceleration and performance.

Advantages of Smart Hybrid Technology

Performance

The torque assist function supplements the engine’s power during acceleration which reduces the load on engine and the brake energy regeneration function captures the energy lost during braking and deceleration of vehicle, eventually improving the engine life & performance.

Improved fuel efficiency

Engineered for better performance and fuel-efficiency and a cleaner way of mobility, the Smart Hybrid technology by Maruti Suzuki has an Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) along with a dual battery setup comprising of a high-capacity Pb-Acid and Lithium-ion battery. Its Brake Energy Regeneration function converts the energy from braking and deceleration and stores it within the batteries to assist motor functions, namely Idle Stop Start and Torque Assist. This combination results into a peppy, powerful & fuel-efficient drive and performance.

Reduction in emissions

The Smart Hybrid Technology helps reduce emissions by saving fuel consumption and improving efficiency thereby helping keep environment clean and green

1. Is it worth buying a car with Smart Hybrid technology?

  • Yes. Buying a Maruti Suzuki car with Smart Hybrid technology is a great idea. This revolutionary technology helps enhance the car’s performance as well as fuel efficiency through its three main functions – Idle Start Stop, Brake Energy Regeneration and Torque Assist.

    Thanks to the assistance provided to the engine by Torque Assist during acceleration and the fuel-saving function of Idle Start Stop, the Smart Hybrid technology ensures there is less load on the engine thereby resulting in better performance, longer engine life, enhanced fuel efficiency and reduced emissions.

2. How do Smart Hybrid cars work?

  • The Smart Hybrid technology includes an Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) which replaces the conventional alternator and an advanced dual battery system with high-capacity lead acid and lithium-ion battery.

    The Smart Hybrid technology mainly has three functions:

    Brake Energy Regeneration: The energy generated by the car at the time of braking or deceleration is converted by the ISG and stored in the dual battery setup.
    Idle Start Stop: The car’s engine is switched off while idling in Neutral when the clutch is released. Once the clutch is pressed again, the ISG uses the energy stored in the dual battery system to silently restart the engine.
    Torque Assist: The energy stored from the dual battery system is used to assist the engine when you accelerate your vehicle.

    Smart Hybrid technology helps reduce the load on the engine, reduces emissions, and improves the performance as well as the fuel efficiency of the car.

3. Which cars by Maruti Suzuki come with Smart Hybrid technology?

  • Maruti Suzuki Arena offers the Smart Hybrid technology in the Ertiga and the Vitara Brezza while the NEXA cars equipped with Smart Hybrid technology include the Ciaz, XL6 and the S-Cross.

4. What is the ISG in Smart Hybrid cars by Maruti Suzuki?

  • Helping reduce the load on the engine, Smart Hybrid technology replaces the conventional starter motor and alternator in cars with an Integrated Starter Generator (ISG). The ISG fulfils a number offunctions that help the car deliver better performance and fuel efficiency.

    At the time of braking or deceleration, the ISG converts the brake energy into electrical energy and stores it in dual battery setup for later use in Torque Assist and Idle Start Stop functions.

“I think Smart Hybrid cars by Maruti Suzuki are an amazing choice. I own a NEXA XL6, and honestly, I could not be happier. Maruti Suzuki’s Smart Hybrid technology is all about better fuel efficiency and performance, which makes the cars easy to maintain as well.”

Bharat Vaishnav

“Smart Hybrid cars are so amazing. I recently bought the Vitara Brezza VXI and despite its size, the car churns out a decent average. Plus, choosing cars with the Smart Hybrid technology is of course the more sustainable choice, which is another reason I recommend the Vitara Brezza to anyone looking to buy a new car.”

Priyanka Choudhary

“I put in a fair bit of research into the Smart Hybrid cars by Maruti Suzuki before finally buying the Vitara Brezza LXI. The car has an amazingly smooth drive, is extremely comfortable, delivers good fuel efficiency, and has all the safety features you need for your peace of mind.”

Anmol Singh

“I bought the Ertiga ZXI Smart Hybrid by Maruti Suzuki. The car is very spacious and comfortable to drive, even for the long haul. Additionally, buying a Smart Hybrid vehicle is a good move for the environment as well, which is of course a step in the right direction. I am extremely happy with my car and recommend it to all.”
