Maruti Suzuki introduced SHVS technology in India with the Ciaz sedan on 1st September 2015 and a month later started offering it with the Maruti Ertiga. SHVS uses an Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) and a battery to supplement the combustion engine’s power. The ISG recovers energy from the car’s deceleration, and this energy is stored in a battery which assists the engine’s idle-stop start function and helps the engine during acceleration.
