This Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) is planned to go into production in 2013 for the Japanese market, and rumors suggest it will be on sale in North America also, albeit at a later date.
The Swift PHEV has a range of 19-miles on just electric power, but also has a 660cc range extender motor. So it won’t be fast, but it should be economical to run.
Suzuki is also looking to attract customers with its price, which is rumored to be at $25,000 when it goes on sale.
So for those looking for a city commuter, this might just be the car they are looking for.
