Under the hood of the Suzuki Across is a plug-in hybrid set of the RAV4, which combines a 2.5-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine with two electric motors - one on the front axle and one on the rear.Suzuki says the front-wheel drive engine produces 182 horsepower and 270 Nm of torque, and the rear offers another 54 hp and draws energy from an 18.1 kWh battery mounted on the car's floor.

As in the RAV4, the suspension consists of McPherson struts at the front and double wishbones at the rear, while the weight of the new Suzuki model reaches 1,940 kg.

No further details have been released so far, although the Japanese carmaker claims Suzuki claims thatthe new Acrossis capable of covering 75 kms on electric and CO2 emissions do not exceed 22 grams per kilometres.

So far, Toyota has produced, or is in process of manufacturing, two Suzuki vehicles. In India, Toyota has already come out with Glanza hatchback, a rebadged Maruti Suzuki Baleno. The carmaker has also announced that it will launch its own version of Maruti Suzuki’s popular compact SUV Vitara Brezza soon. Toyota also plans to produce the Corolla sedan for Suzuki.

Toyota Motor and Suzuki Motor had decided to join hands to produce cars for each other in India as Toyota aims to increase its market share in the fast-growing country dominated by its smaller rival. The carmakers said that the agreement would cover vehicles including gasoline hybrids.
