New Suzuki ACROSS PLUG-IN. “Always electric, hybrid when needed”
Thanks to an advanced plug-in hybrid system, designed to operate primarily in electric mode, and to its 18.1 kWh battery, ACROSS PLUG-IN can travel up to 98km in cities with zero emissions (WLTP cycle). It is driven by three engines: two electric ones, on the front and rear axles, respectively with 182 and 54 hp, flanked by an efficient 4-cylinder 2.5 Atkinson cycle of 185 hp. For a maximum combined power of 306 horsepower.
All orchestrated automatically by the car on the basis of driving conditions and driver preferences, to ensure maximum efficiency combined with sports performance.
An innovative all-wheel drive
The hybrid architecture of ACROSS PLUG-IN creates an innovative all-wheel drive scheme, with no mechanical connection between the two axles and capable of ensuring 4WD traction even without starting the heat engine. This is possible thanks to the rear electric motor controlled by AWD Integrated Management (AIM).
In case of lowering of the battery charge, 4×4 traction is guaranteed by the activation of the heat engine, which provides the energy needed to power the rear engine.
