It is the end of the first of two press days and there is no new Jimny on the Suzuki Stand at 5 pm Tokyo time.

Just a concept electric Mini SUZ with no details about it.

I've been watching the Motor Show website pretty closely but have only seen 7 Suzuki autos listed. The Jimny hasn't been one of them and, in spite of the local news (Yahoo Japan), being fairly insistent that the Jimny will be debuted, I'm thinking we will all be disappointed. Just staying patient and hoping for the best when the main show premiere starts tomorrow.....or at least when it opens to the public on the 28th.

I started out with nothing & still have most of it left

We’re still waiting on a definite answer as to exactly when Suzuki will replace its charming if utterly basic off-roader, the diminutive Jimny. 
But what if it looked like this? The Suzuki e-Survivor is a concept for a futuristic SUV powered with four in-wheel electric motors and a battery pack. Apparently it will also be capable of autonomous driving, but there’s so little of it, it’s difficult to see where all the control computers would go.

Besides, this two-seater still has a steering wheel and a set of conventional controls. It is built on a ladder frame, like the Jimny, though it’s a bigger vehicle all round. It’s highly unlikely to be made, but you never quite know with Suzuki; that’s what they said about the hideous X90, but they still went ahead and built it.

I so hope they are not taking a leaf out of land rovers book with the death of the defender and its none existing replacement.

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny
