We are talking about a system that allows the Swift to offer an electric-only range of 18 miles (29 km), so Suzuki is looking to develop the technology further in order to also adapt the vehicle for European use - in Europe, drivers travel much more than that per day.

However, the limited electric-only range also means that the Swift comes with a full recharge time of only 90 minutes on a 200V outlet, while using a 100V supply raises the time to four hours.
