I have just seen this in a Facebook group.
Any truth in it?

Generally speaking and based on experience the words "truth" and "facebook" do not go so well together.

I note the Jimny is the 5 door, so not sure this is intended to be for Europe. The Swace is a hybrid, I doubt they are going to bin this either, it’s a stepping stone to full electric.

The Swace is a rebadged Toyota, isn't it, like the Mazda 2 hybrid?

If it is true, then it will be the end of Suzuki cars UK. The bottom has dropped out of the UK EV market, and I can't see it picking up until The Ban, so unless they can bring a very very very cheap small EV out, there will be no market share for them here. Maybe that is The Plan, just pull out of the UK market altogether, and concentrate on Asia.

I'd imagine Maruti would keep knocking out the Jimny even if Japan does switch to EV production, or close the plant, so we should still be able to get spares at least.

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)

l wouldn't be surprised if it was true, their range is limited and it may just not be worth their while to comply with the ever tightening emissions regulations in the U.K.

l hope not though, it would be a shame. However l can't find anything about it online, and you can still configure a new lgnis for factory order on the website.

Sadly I reckon we are about to see the downfall of Suzuki UK and EU. If they cut these cars then dealers will basically only have a couple of models to sell and that doesn’t make a business if those cars also aren’t big sellers. Not that the Jimny is a big seller but it is the most iconic car in their range with a long history. If they do go ahead with this then I don’t know why they didn’t sell the rights to the jimny to Toyota which they declined to do a few months back as Toyota seem to want to develop the jimny and push it forward but Suzuki say it’s part of their heritage so why on earth get rid of it ?‍♂️ on the plus side used Jimny prices will be very strong with no more coming in.

Hmm - so a random dealer has released this ahead of any formal Suzuki UK press release? I very much doubt it - there would be a press moratorium on information potentially this incendiary.

I think this is an attempt at some clever advertising by one dealer, "you're not going to be able to buy these soon so rush over now before you miss out entirely!"

That said though an all electric square body might tempt me out of mine if they did some proper colour ways too, dark red, electric blue, quasar grey....

Maybe I'm abnormal,  but "not made anymore" = "spares supply will soon dry up"  in my head and I'm less likely to rush to buy one.

I see on the News that Nissan has stopped SUV production in China, Honda have cut back Chinese production 10% and Mitsubishi have withdrawn from China, so there could be some truth in it.
