Suzuki Kei concept cars

Suzuki has a long history of creating rough, tough compact off-roaders capable of punching well above their weight, and the e-Survivor would suggest the company plans to keep that heritage alive in the future.

With a lightweight body and ladder-frame chassis, the concept is designed to evoke the spirit of the Jimny and Vitara, but it's powered by an electric four-wheel drive system for cleaner off-roading. Electric four-wheel drive systems offer a range of new possibilities for manufacturers, because the amount of torque being sent to each wheel can be so finely tuned on the fly. It'll be interesting to see how Suzuki interprets the technology.
