In a recent press conference, Suzuki has revealed its carbon-neutral plan, as well as some upcoming products that will be available in the future. The electric Suzuki Jimny is one of the most intriguing prospects of that plan.

Next year, the Jimny will be unveiled in Europe for the first time as a fully-electric car. Also, it is planning to launch four other battery-electric vehicles (BEVs) in the region as well.

There are two different engines available for the Jimny at present, a 660 cc turbocharged engine that produces 64 horsepower (hp) and 105 Newton meters (Nm) of torque (only available in Japan), and a 1.5-liter naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine that produces 101 horsepower and 130 Nm of torque, and is available in the majority of parts of the world.

Furthermore, aside from the European market’s plans for EVs by 2023 and 2024, Japan and India are going to be receiving their own sets of EVs by the end of the decade. There is also a possibility of the company considering electric bikes and engines for boats in addition to electric vehicles.

Suzuki is not only focused on EVs, however, so it is important to point out that it does not only focus on them.

In addition to hybrid vehicles, the automaker’s carbon neutrality plan includes cars that run on synthetic fuels and hybrid cars that run on gasoline. It is being considered that the company will use energy sources such as biogas from cow dung, compressed natural gas (CNGs), ethanol-based fuels, and a combination of these fuel sources.
