Suzuki reveals new Across PHEV


Suzuki has launched the new Across – a plug-in hybrid SUV that is based on the forthcoming Toyota RAV4 Plug-In.

The first model to come along following a partnership between Suzuki and Toyota, the Across gets a new front end, but the rest of the design is largely stock RAV4, as is the interior.

Powered by a 2.5 litre petrol engine and electric motor, the Suzuki Across produces a maximum 182 hp, and produces 22 g/km CO2 according to the WLTP test. An 18.1 kWh battery allows for an electric-only range of 46 miles.

An E-Four powertrain allows for all-wheel drive, and there are a range of systems to aid efficiency, with selectable Eco, Normal, and Sport modes, auto EV drive, and EV or battery hold options.

UK prices and specifications are yet to be announced, but the Suzuki Across is expected to go on sale in autumn this year.
