Slew of Suzuki Concept Cars Set for Tokyo Debut, O-Kei?


In addition to the e-Survivor, an electric off-roader with a traditional frame that draws inspiration from the brand’s Suzuki, Jimny and Vitara models, Suzuki has several other world debuts scheduled for this year’s Tokyo Motor Show.

Full details haven’t been released yet, but here’s what we know now about the Japanese automaker is revealing.

Kicking things off is the Spacia Concept, a tall miniwagon in the Japanese kei-car segment. It features a roomy interior afforded by its low floor and boxy exterior. For easy access, each side features a sliding door. According to the company it, “…offers a sense of excitement and fun.”

The Spacia Custom takes what’s offered by the Standard Spacia Concept and ups the style factor. Dressed up with a prominent grille as well as a black roof and mirror housings, it’s even more distinctive than its sibling.


Next up, the XBEE – that’s cross-bee – a small crossover-wagon that supposedly creates a whole new segment. Its spacious interior and overall packaging are borrowed from the wagon segment, while the off-road capability and tough styling are, naturally, inspired by SUVs.


The XBEE Outdoor Adventure model is designed for activities in nature, it’s aimed particularly at adults that love camping. It’s also supposedly more elegant and fun than the standard model.

But that’s not all! Suzuki will also reveal a third version of this segment-redefining concept. The XBEE Street Adventure is decidedly more at home in urban areas than the great outdoors, with styling that’s bolder and more fashionable, though we’re sure the changes here are, at most, minor.


Finally, the company is also set to unveil a new version of the Carry, a kei-segment utility truck. The Carry Open-Air Market Concept may be the coolest design study set to be shown by Suzuki in Tokyo this year, simply because it’s so functional. This little pickup features additional interior space and a more user-friendly design than before. It’s ideally suited as an open-air truck or even a mobile shop, but use-cases are nearly endless.
