Along with a plug-in hybrid version of the Swift, Suzuki is planning to unveil a hydrogen fuel cell-powered SX4 concept model at the Tokyo Auto Show later this month.

Under the theme “Small cars, big future,” Suzuki will show the SX4-FCV and several other alternative fuel vehicles. This particular vehicle is powered by a fuel cell stack and a 10,000 psi hydrogen tank.

The Japanese automaker is currently testing the SX4-FCV on Japanese roads and plans to bring a production model to market in the near future. We won’t hold our breath…

In addition, Suzuki will also showcase a new Mio electric wheelchair powered by “direct methanol fuel cells” that can be replaced rather than just recharged. Three new two-wheeled vehicles will also be on display, including the Burgman Fuel Cell Scooter that, much like the SX4, uses hydrogen as a fuel-source.
