Suzuki To Replace Jimny And Swift With EV Versions

As with many other brands, Suzuki is also electrifying its vehicles now too

Suzuki is embarking on a transformative journey into the future of automotive technology, signalling a definitive shift away from internal combustion engines (ICE) towards electric vehicles (EVs). The cornerstone of this bold initiative is their upcoming electric car, the eVX, poised to debut globally in 2025. 

This pivotal move shows the brand’s strategic pivot from traditional vehicle models to embrace a new era of sustainable mobility. With unwavering focus, Suzuki has announced its intention to phase out the Swift Sport, an iconic model that has captivated enthusiasts worldwide. It will also be replacing petrol versions of the Swift and Jimny with EV models.

Moreover, by early 2025, Suzuki plans to bid farewell to the Swift Sport, unless stocks are depleted sooner, marking the end of an era for this beloved sports variant. This decision, while necessary for Suzuki’s transition, comes with a tinge of melancholy for those who have cherished the Swift Sport’s spirited performance and distinctive style.

The Suzuki lineup, undergoing a significant overhaul, will prioritise SUVs and hybrid models as it prepares for the imminent EV revolution. Alongside the discontinuation of the Swift Sport, Suzuki will streamline its offerings to focus on a new hybrid lineup. 

On top of that, central to Suzuki’s electrification strategy is the eVX, set to compete directly with models such as the Hyundai Creta EV. Boasting a robust 60kWh battery pack and an impressive claimed range of 550km on a single charge, the eVX promises to deliver both efficiency and performance in equal measure. 

This foray into electric mobility represents Suzuki’s commitment to meeting evolving consumer demands for environmentally friendly vehicles without compromising on driving experience and technological innovation. Well, it is sad to see the Swift Sport go but this electric future is inevitable now as is the case globally.

Suzuki’s roadmap for the future is defined by innovation, sustainability, and a steadfast commitment to redefining the automotive landscape. With the impending debut of the eVX and the strategic electrification of its vehicle lineup, the Japanese brand is poised to lead the charge towards a greener, more electrified tomorrow, ensuring that the legacy of performance and innovation continues to thrive in the age of electric mobility.
