I suspect that the majority of these are going to be bought by individuals to use as a personal car, not by businesses looking for a van.

All the photos I have seen have windows in the back. If it was a van I wouldn't have thought that it wouldn't/couldn't have windows in the back?

I wonder how long it will be before someone offers conversions to add two seats in the back?

Something strange has appeared on the Suzuki support website.

Its a new version of the parts manual which is for the A6G415 (Type 2) Jimny for the E02 and E54 markets (UK and Israel). This means (being Type 2) that there has been some sort of model change.

Ah ha, I hear you say. That will be the commercial variant, except it isnt. The Commercial VAN appears in the parts manual for the A6G415 (Type 1) which was published BEFORE the Type 2 manual.

The Type 2 manual was published AFTER sales in the UK stopped and although dated October it has only just appeared

The Type 2 manual applies to VIN Number JSAGJB74V00160001 onwards.

Does anyone in the UK have a vehicle with a VIN number greater than that number above, if so can you let me know.

It seems strange to release a parts manual after a vehicle has been discontinued and only a month after the original parts manual has been updated to include a forthcoming model which is not in the newer manual. This is particularly as simple parts change normally is just a revision of the parts manual (for exampe the Type 1 parts manual is now revision 3). A "Type" revision is usually something more major/

If nothing else, if you have a type 2 you may have an even rarer beast! Alternatively you may like to start a rumour that the full Jimny is returning to the UK (VERY UNLIKELY)

Good!

A summary of the changes:

1. Lifts the spec of what was the SZ4 (UK) or GL (Rest of world) - LED Headlamps look to be standard across the range. Why publish an upgrade to the SZ4 which we lost in 2019 (makes sense however to separate it from the "commercial" spec.)

2. Couple of minor changes to the SZ5 - external noticeable on is the change of design for the rear number plate lamps.

So the mystery is why publish a manual in the UK for vehicles we do not have (unless anyone finds a VIN above that number!)

It's ok to have windows, the discovery commercials have windows, they're just totally blacked out, hard to tell on the outside, just look like tints

lf the price is fixed at around £16,000 then it will be a great way to get a new Jimny.

As with many, our SZ5 rear seats are down all the time with the Suzuki rubber mat on top anyway.

Surely it already has VAT on a 'normal' car, difference being you can't reclaim it unless its commercial, so it should be £16,000 including VAT.
Well I'm hoping anyway, being VAT registered....

l can't see it being £16,000+VAT because that would make it £19,200

But you never know, l am sure they would still sell out immediately at that price.

VW increased the price of the Up GTi by nearly £3,000 after the first batch sold out and they took it off sale for a while.

lt doesn't seem to have stopped people from buying them.

My Jimny is not yet 12 months old and the VIN is before that. Probably due to the fact it was sat in a field for ages while we were being rationed due to EU emissions regs.

Being sat in a field isn't the issue that it was back in the 1980's where some cars barely made their first MOT without structural corrosion.

l had an Alfasud that was scrapped at three years old "nothing left to weld to" said the MOT guy
