As you know each year Tokyo Motor Show is mostly dominated by all the concepts the Japanese car makers bring along. We’ve told you about Nissan and Subaru concepts, now check out Suzuki’s lineup.
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.
