Suzuki Kizashi EcoCharge Concept
“Our basic concept was to attain substantial gains in fuel economy without the traditional sacrifices in drivability required with today’s midsize hybrid sedans. The proof of our concept is that the Kizashi EcoCharge has the capability to deliver a 25 percent fuel economy gain in real-world driving through an electric charge to the powertrain system while still retaining the production Kizashi’s dynamic handling and braking advantages that make it a standout category performer.”
- Steve Younan, director of automotive marketing and product planning for American Suzuki Motor Corporation
