Suzuki is planning a mid-EV electric Jimny, the onslaught of hybrid
suzuki introduce Jimny five doors bigger earlier this month, and a Detailed investor presentation of the automaker’s growth strategy to 2030 shows there’s more in store. The automaker’s mission is to expand its product line with vehicles geared towards “realizing a carbon-neutral society”. This requires Europe, India and Japan get a new five or six mixture and/or each battery-electric model. In Europe, the first of Suzuki’s five BEVs will launch in fiscal year 2024; when the rollout is complete, it will include an electric Jimny – silhouetted in the upper right. According to the Australian store Drivestarting from the top left, the rest is a minivan, an electric version of the Fronx Cross each other Suzuki debuted at Auto Expo in India earlier this month, an unspecified hatchback and retail version of the EVX concept.
An electric Jimny will bring the shabby 4×4 back to Europe without any sorting tricks. The Japanese brand stops exporting the regular 4-seater model to Europe in 2020 when it can no longer pass the EU emissions. Now it will send the same model as a two-seater commercial vehicle. Suzuki sells up to seven models in the European market excluding the Jimny, six of which are mild hybrids, one Dip into the mixture. Had rumor of a Jimny hybrid in a few years, and it is predicted to be the new five-door model there will be a combo option soon. The investor presentation floor has predicted the eventual share of powertrains in Europe is 80% battery-powered vehicles, 20% hybrid vehicles. We expect that to mean a near-complete overhaul of the European range with current models scrapped in favor of hybrids with electric options.
Surprisingly, the battery-powered Jimny silhouette does not appear on the slides for the Indian or Japanese markets. In Japan, Suzuki expects sales to reach 80% hybrid, 20% EV, in contrast to Europe. The Indian outpost, known as Maruti Suzuki, is the automaker’s biggest market, and a local store said 1,000 shoppers have paid to book Jimny’s five doors a day since vans debut. The expected powertrain breakdown there is much more varied than in the other two regions at 15% of battery-powered vehicles, 25% of hybrids and 60% of internal combustion ratios made up of a compressed air mixture. . nature Airbiogas, ethanol and “etc.” This will definitely be the market for the hybrid Jimny whenever it comes along.
None of this brings Jimny closer to our shores, but there’s no reason why hybrid or electric versions shouldn’t make their way to Mexico, where the Jimny has been sold.
