Suzuki Q EV Concept
The Suzuki booth at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show will feature automobiles that highlight Suzuki’s uncompromising focus on meeting contemporary needs, offering new kinds of value, and delivering genuine pleasure to customers.
In line with Suzuki’s unparalleled expertise in small cars, the theme of Suzuki’s booth will be “small cars for a big future”. Suzuki cars for today, the near future, and the more distant future will highlight the fuel economy, user-friendliness, innovation, brisk performance, and exciting styling that are possible within smaller dimensions - and the huge possibilities that small cars will realize in years to come.
Q-concept: two-seat micro mobility for everyday life.
The Q-concept is an entirely new kind of mobility — one that’s positioned between conventional motorcycles and cars. With a 2.5-metre overall length and two seats in tandem configuration, it’s ideal for everyday journeys within a radius of about 10km.
The Q-concept is more practical than a car as it’s more manoeuvrable and takes up much less parking space. At the same time, a cabin makes it a more attractive, more comfortable option than a motorcycle. It’s outstandingly handy for shopping, commuting, going to the doctor, transporting children, and all the other short journeys in everyday life.
Other Q-concept configurations are possible. For instance, the Q-concept can have a single seat for a parent at the front and a two-person child seat at the rear, or it can be configured as a delivery vehicle with a single seat at the front and a cargo area at the rear. So it offers new possibilities for people who live in towns where businesses, schools, hospitals and other essential facilities are all in relatively compact areas.
