Info doing the rounds on FB that euro dealers are being told that Jimny supplies will be stopping and that a commercial variant will arrive 2021.



Translation by someone else:
object: jimny - order closure

1. end of production of the current version of jimny, for Europe due to c02 regulations

2. immediately stop collecting new contracts

3. Jimny with N1 approval (truck. 2 seats, extraneous to the CO2 regulation) expected with deliveries in 2021

Asked my dealer about this rumor and he said that they had suzuki meeting and nothing was mentioned about cancellation of Jimny in Europe. Could this image what is circling around be fake.

I hope it isn't fake news as a 2 seat pickup version from the factory would be very easy for me to buy.

One thing I will say is that the ongoing coyness from Suzuki is really wearing thin. One press release saying yes we're continuing to import the Jimny yes we will be increasing the allocation by making some of the rest of the models hybrid and yes the Jimny pickup is a thing and will be available in 2021. It can't be that hard to say honestly what is happening and it would be much less morally bankrupt than leaking a picture here or a memo there.

It kind of ties in with what a UK dealer told me a month ago in that he's not taking anymore pre orders and Suzuki are stopping imports. Only one dealer said that mind (mangoletti) but wasn't there recent news said that this year's allocation is less that 1000 cars.

A lot of cars have been axed recently because of emissions regs 308 GTi, up GTi etc.

Maybe the passenger version will disappear for a short while until they can tame it's CO2? It appears that the commercial version doesn't have to comply with EU CO2 emissions.

I very much doubt the current Jimmy will ever plummet in value; there are just too few of them compared to the demand. Even when the new model comes out I’m sure it will be similarly constrained in supply so demand will outstrip supply for years to come.

Just found this ............Suzuki will soon stop selling the popular Jimny SUV in the European market. The company has already begun communicating with its European dealer network to stop accepting new orders for the Jimny, with immediate effect. The Jimny’s departure from Suzuki’s European line-up has to do with stricter European norms for CO2 emissions that come in to effect in 2021.

EU legislation sets mandatory emission reduction targets for new cars and for 2021, each carmaker can have a maximum fleet average of 95g of CO2/km. While this rule will only come into effect next year, it has begun phasing in from this year, according to the EU legislation. In order to achieve this target, the brand had been phasing out diesel vehicles since 2018, and is currently in the process of introducing a 48V mild-hybrid version for the Vitara SUV, which will be the first Suzuki model in Europe to benefits from this new powertrain.

The Jimny sold in Europe comes with Suzuki’s K15B 1.5-litre petrol engine that does not feature any type of hybridisation. The SUV is available with either a 5-speed manual or an automatic gearbox. The Jimny emits relatively high CO2 levels – it’s rated at 154g/km or 170g/km, depending on whether the 1.5-litre engine is paired to a manual or automatic gearbox.

According to our sister publication Autocar UK, selling more Jimnys than greener models, such as the Ignis and Swift, will push up Suzuki’s average CO2 in Europe, thus leading to fines from the European Union if it goes above the target.

Suzuki will henceforth sell all vehicles in Europe with some level of hybridisation. The company already sells the Ignis and the Swift with a 12V system, while the more expensive models, like the S-Cross and Vitara SUV, come with the 48V hybrid system coupled with a new K14D 1.4-litre petrol engine.

The Jimny will, however, make a return to select market in Europe sometime in 2021 as an N1 commercial vehicle. This means, Suzuki will sell the Jimny as a commercial vehicle without rear seats and with minor interior tweaks, but with the same 1.5-litre petrol engine as the outgoing passenger version. Commercial vehicles in the N1 category are not required to adhere to the strict 95 g CO2/km regulation. Sources tell us that the Jimny will return to the European market as a passenger vehicle in the future with an engine update that would help the brand achieve the brand’s CO2 targets.

Suzuki builds the Jimny for all markets at its Kosai plant in Japan. The small off-roader already has become a surprise success for Suzuki, with waiting periods of up to a year in some markets. The SUV’s exit from the European market could be seen as a relief for customers waiting for their Jimny in other regions, thanks to a decent reduction in the order backlog.
