Aye but they won't ship small quanitities of Jimnys across to our little island will they? And I'll bet we will still be under EU laws for some time yet

With fear of starting an unrelated Brexit argument, our government have said that they will align with EU laws when it comes to things like vehicle emissions.

Like I said before, a lot of manufacturers have canned different cars in their ranges. vW group have cancelled all the petrol Up, Mii and Citigos making them electric only.

For every electric car they sell they can cancel out 2 higher polluting car sales hence the push.

So this commercial, is it a pickup akin to the landmaster or a van like what I have in Dreadnaught?

I have mixed feelings on this announcement.
Im sad for folks on the waiting lists, hopefully a certain number of jims have been set aside to cover some of the waiters at least, i certainly hope so anyhow.

This also means that the jims on the road in the UK are a very rare thing, and that only adds to their vurrent value.

Im intrigued to see what hybrids come along in future, not sure how this will effect values on gen 4's with the 1.5 block, but still makes us owners part of a very rare breed.

I suppose the N1 commercial vehicles will be modestly adapted to get round the co2 regs, as far ss i can see, they will have no back seats only, and a sort of tray thingy thats currently offered as an accesory right now.

Suzuki have been very poor at communicating to its buyers, and i can imagine a lot of hurt feelings. They played this very badly imo.

A frikin weird saga the whole thing.

Fingers crossed for all you waiters though i mean that! The gen 4 is a very specially vehicle, and i hope as many people as possible can experience its magic.

Mines a keeper till it falls apart and dies.

I read it as it would be a van; a two seater variant of what is already available.
If it is, what's to stop anyone fitting seats retrospectively!

I took the back seats out of my G3, blacked out the rear windows and bing "a commercial variant". Only took me a day, why is it going to take Suzuki till 2021 to do the same on the G4? :laugh:
I am pleased they are keeping it as a 1.5 petrol for those that have them, worse case is it arrives with new engine or electric instantly making the current G4 very rare. This is not such a good thing second hand as it would make finding parts very difficult unless you can stomach Suzuki dealer prices. Just speaking as a purchaser of secondhand vehicles, no problem for the current owners while the warranty is in place.

If they could tame the 1litre boosterjet engine for the Jimny it would provide ample power and it would also be under the radar for the EU CO2 regulations
This is the performance stats in the Swift.
Engine 998cc turbocharged 3-cyl, 109bhp @ 5500rpm, 125lb ft @ 2000-3500rpm torque 170Nm
Stats 10.6sec 0-62mph, 121mph, 97g/km CO2

In old money it has the same performance as an 1800cc engine....

Hi Andy

Always good to read your posts from time to time.

Yup, Suzuki GB lost my support about 6 months back. It wasn't the most logical decision but I just felt "I don't need to be mucked-about like this".
(Dealer on the other hand, was great throughout.)

SURELY, any corporate ought to be able to handle PR better than this?

After "Diesel-Gate" from VW we get "Idiot-Gate" from Suzuki!

Anyway, I think your decision to get the 'original' 1.5 un-blown, non-hybrid Jimny will stand you in good stead. You might never become rich, but there will always be a market and it'll be supremely reliable and easy to fix.

Enjoy your Jim - and I'm envious, but in a good way!

Guy

The plot thickens, I have just had a Suzuki dealer telling me they will be having a Jimny delivered soon (pre-registered) £23k. I asked why it was so much dearer than the list price and he said supply and demand, he means ripping you off while they can. Car dealers always had a bad name a couple of decades ago, it looks like they will be earning that title again anytime soon..
Anyhows, besides the generous offer to rip me off I mentioned the rumour that Suzuki is going to stop selling the Jimny saloon in the UK because of the EU CO2 regulations, he said that that was true and the commercial version will be coming out in 2021. He also said that the saloon would be back with a compliant engine.
Martin was right about his prediction regarding the EU regulations 12 months ago....:pinch:
