Suzuki shifts its focus to small cars and urban commuters for this year’s Tokyo auto show as it prepares to show three new concepts at its home show. The Q concept is a tiny mobility study that Suzuki says is positioned between a motorcycle and a car. The company claims the bubble-topped two-seater is “ideal for everyday journeys within a radius of 10km” and it will likely rely on electric power. Next on the “small cars for a big future” bill is the concept of a new-generation global small car (and successor to the Alto) called Regina. Suzuki hasn’t revealed its engine details, but claims the concept is good for a fuel consumption figure of 3.1 litres and CO2 emissions as low as 70 g/km. It weighs just 730kg. EV CONCEPT However, Suzuki is particularly excited about the Swift EV Hybrid, which will enjoy its world premiere at the show. ELECTRIC SWIFT: The Swift EV Hybrid concept has a range extender for longer journeys. Following from the Swift Plug-In hybrid shown in 2009, the EV concept runs as an electric vehicle for daily commutes of between 20 and 30km. It also has a range-extending petrol-powered generator that kicks in when the battery is depleted. The Tokyo auto show runs from November 30 to December 11, 2011.
