Maruti Ciaz with its new hybrid technology has further raised the bar for fuel economy. Maruti, which is known for offering fuel efficient cars was seen loosing its shine to some of its competitors like Honda. But it changed when it launched Ciaz with a mileage of 26.21 kmpl. Ciaz Hybrid which will offer about 28 kmpl mileage will further increase the gap with competitors.
According to some reports, Swift, Dzire & Eriga are also expected to be offered with SHVS technology. Basically, all the 1.3L diesel engine powered engines are likely to be offered with this technology. The Swift Hybrid, if implemented is expected to deliver 30 kmpl
The Ciaz diesel hybrid or Ciaz SHVS is expected to be launched in three variants- VDi, ZDi & ZDi+.
It will replace the current non SHVS diesel Ciaz. Thanks to the incentives provided by the Govt. under FAME scheme, the price increment for Ciaz Hybrid will be less i.e Rs 15,000-Rs 20,000
Maruti Ciaz SHVS Launch date : September 1 2015
Maruti Ciaz SHVS Expected price : Rs. 8.1-11 lakhs
