Benefits of electric

An electrified Suzuki is easy to live with. Want to know why?

Low running costs – A plug-in hybrid such as the Suzuki Across returns as much as 282mpg.
Environmental benefits – The Across produces CO2 emissions as low as 22g/km.
Other incentives – All of our hybrid Suzuki models are exempt from Clean Air Zone charges, including London’s daily £12.50 ULEZ fee. They also attract lower Vehicle Excise Duty rates, and company car users can enjoy reduced benefit-in-kind tax
Choosing the vehicle to suit you Your vehicles. Your way. Anywhere. By owning an electrified Suzuki vehicle, you’ll save money on fuel while contributing towards an eco-friendly future.

Types of electric/hybrid vehicles explained

An electrified Suzuki offers enhanced efficiency while producing lower emissions.

    Electric EVs run purely on electricity, which means they’re highly efficient and produce zero emissions. EVs require manual charging.
    Plug-in hybrid PHEVs such as the Suzuki Across are equipped with an electric motor and a combustion engine. This means they can run on electric power alone – up to 46 miles in the case of the Across. PHEVs are super economical to run and produce very low emissions. As with EVs, PHEVs require manual charging, which can be done at home, at work and out and about.
    Full hybrid Full hybrid electric vehicles (FHEVs) such as the Suzuki Swace run on electricity at low speeds and when coasting. This makes them very useful in stop-start urban situations. Otherwise, FHEVs run on fuel while delivering instant torque and above-average efficiency. FHEVs offer self-charging convenience too.
    Mild hybrid Mild hybrid electric vehicles (MHEVs) include the Suzuki Ignis, Swift, Swift Sport, Vitara and S-Cross, each of which offers enhanced efficiency, instant torque and self-charging convenience.


    We’ve tried to include our most commonly asked electric-related questions below. If your particular query isn’t covered, please get in touch with the Suzuki Bilston or Cannock team today.

    Are electric cars automatic?


    Almost all electric cars are automatic, yes.

    What is a hybrid car?


    A hybrid car features a combustion engine, an electric motor and a self-charging battery. It’s a good electrified-vehicle jumping-on point if you’re used to driving a regular car.

    What is a plug-in hybrid car?


    While plug-in hybrids are similar to hybrids, they’re capable of a greater all-electric range. This means that they’re very fuel-efficient and produce fewer emissions.

    How long does it take to charge a plug-in hybrid vehicle?


    The Suzuki Across PHEV takes approximately 96 minutes to achieve a 20% to 80% charge with a 7kW-rated domestic or public connector.

    Should I buy an electrified car?


    Yes, if you’re looking to save money on fuel and would like a car that produces fewer emissions. For expert, impartial advice, please contact our Suzuki Bilston or Cannock showroom team today.

    How does an electric car work?


    Electric cars rely solely on electrical power which is provided by a motor that’s energised by a battery (which requires manual charging).

    How does a hybrid car work?


    Hybrid cars are fitted with a combustion engine which is supported by an electric motor. The latter is powered by a self-charging battery. This fuel-electric set-up facilitates enhanced efficiency and instant torque, among other things.

    Are electrified cars better for the environment?


    Yes. The Suzuki Across PHEV, for instance, returns as much as 282mpg.
