The car demonstrates the Japanese carmaker’s new vision for a compact car incorporating minimised weight and elaborated dynamics.
The G70 weighs a mere 730kg and has a drag coefficient at least 10 per cent lower than that of a current Suzuki ‘A’ segment model.
Because of the overall reduction in weight and the use of a highly efficient petrol engine, CO2 emissions are as low as 70g/km (measured in the European Driving Cycle).
The company will also be displaying the Swift Range Extender, Suzuki’s latest development in hybrid vehicle technology. The Swift Range Extender was first shown at the Geneva Show in 2010 and, since then, has undergone further development which has resulted in a 100 per cent improvement in battery driving range to 30km.
The Swift Range Extender makes use of a generator and a highly efficient 660cc three-cylinder petrol engine for power. Compared with a conventional Electric Vehicle that depends entirely on battery power, the Range Extender has a more compact lithium-ion battery that’s quicker to charge, weighs less, uses fewer resources and also costs less.
