Maruti’s Series Hybrid System

Maruti Suzuki’s new Series Hybrid System is a unique system. Unlike parallel or series-parallel systems, which use both the internal combustion engine and electric motor to directly power the wheels, the Series Hybrid System utilizes the internal combustion engine solely as a generator to produce electricity. This electricity then powers an electric motor, which in turn drives the wheels.

Advantages of Series Hybrid Technology

Now, a lot of people might be wondering what the advantages of this new Series Hybrid System are. The answer to this is that this system offers three major advantages. The first advantage is that it is a very simple hybrid system. By eliminating the need for a direct mechanical connection between the engine and wheels, Maruti’s Series Hybrid System streamlines the powertrain, reduces complexity, and improves efficiency. The other advantage is that it is very cost-effective. This new system will help Maruti Suzuki to make strong hybrids more accessible to a wider range of consumers. And the result of this will help in increasing the popularity of hybrids in the country.

Lastly, the main benefit of the new Series Hybrid System is that it will help with more fuel efficiency. As per the company, with the internal combustion engine operating at its optimal efficiency level to generate electricity, the new Series Hybrid System will deliver impressive fuel efficiency figures. The company aims to achieve a mileage of up to 35 kilometers per liter in its hybrid models.

Other types of strong hybrid systems

Apart from the newly revealed Series Hybrid System, there are parallel hybrid systems and Series-Parallel Hybrid systems. In a standard parallel hybrid system, both the ICE and the electric motor are connected to the wheels through a transmission. These types of vehicles can be powered by either the ICE, the electric motor, or a combination of both. In this system, the electric motor assists the ICE during acceleration and provides additional power when needed, which helps in improving overall performance and efficiency. Generally, parallel hybrids can operate in various modes, including pure electric mode, hybrid mode, and ICE-only mode.

On the other hand, the Series-Parallel Hybrid systems combine elements of both series and parallel hybrid configurations. These systems can operate in series mode, parallel mode, or a combination of both, depending on driving conditions. In series mode, the ICE acts as a generator to produce electricity for the electric motor, similar to a pure series hybrid. Meanwhile, in parallel mode, both the ICE and the electric motor can directly power the wheels, providing additional power and flexibility. The series-parallel hybrid configuration offers a balance between efficiency and performance but is generally more complex.
