Suzuki Ertiga Hybrid journey overview in Indonesia
In fact, the Suzuki Ertiga Hybrid is not the first time it has appeared in Indonesia. Previously, PT Suzuki Indomobil Sales (SIS) had launched the diesel-powered Ertiga Hybrid in 2017.
At that time, the Ertiga Diesel Hybrid used a Diesel engine coded D13A with a displacement of 1,300 cc DOHC and added with DDiS (Diesel Direct Injection System) technology. This diesel engine is said to be capable of producing up to 89 horsepower at 4,000 rpm and 200 Nm of torque at 1,750 rpm.
Not to forget the latest hybrid system is also set to increase the level of fuel efficiency. Where when driving normally, the engine will run while charging the battery assisted by Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) technology.
This technology has two distinct functions. First as a generator to capture and store energy in the battery when the vehicle is in the deceleration phase (deceleration). second as engine which will provide additional power to the engine during acceleration.
Unfortunately, the presence of the Ertiga Hybrid diesel was less appealing to consumers at that time. As a result, the population of the 7-seat MPV is not much.
Entering 2022, Suzuki Indonesia will again launch its flagship 7-seat MPV (Ertiga) with a gasoline hybrid engine. The technology used remains the same as the Ertiga diesel hybrid, namely the Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) technology. It’s just the difference, now using Ertiga base gasoline.
“Physically, there is an addition of a 6A 12V lithium battery, so the battery now uses 55 Ampere hour (Ah), in the previous version (Ertiga diesel hybrid) it uses 70 Ah, and finally the improved Integrated Intelligent Generator (ISG), so if you look closely, the shape looks bigger,” explained Yulius Purwanto, head of 4W product development at PT SIS, during the introduction of hybrid technology in the Suzuki boot at the IIMS 2022 event.
