First we have the Regina compact car which is Suzuki’s vision of a global compact car. Weighing just 730kg this lightweight small city car has a drag coefficient at least 10% lower than that of current models. That makes it super-efficient with fuel economy of at least 32km/Land CO2 emissions as low as 70g/km.

That’s interesting, but not quite as interesting as the Q-concept: two-seat microcar. This little fella has2 .5-metre overall length and two seats in tandem configuration, which makes a perfect daily driver in busy towns. It is in fact the closest car to a motorcycle. It has the same maneuverability but with a proper cabin and four-wheels.

The most realistic concept car however, is the Swift EV Hybrid: a compact electric vehicle with an engine-driven generator. Based on Suzuki’s popular hatchback, the Swift EV has an electric motor and a normal engine as a generator to back it up. The experimental vehicle can cover 20 to 30 km on one charge which is the normal range for a daily driver in Japan.
