Suzuki to continue sales of Jimny in UK and Ireland throughout 2020

Suzuki GB PLC has confirmed that the Jimny model will remain on sale in the UK and Ireland in very limited numbers throughout 2020.

The announcement follows recent speculation regarding the future of the model in Europe.

At launch in late 2018, Suzuki announced that the higher CO2 emissions levels of this model would adversely affect its whole range CO2 average in Europe after 2020. This target was set across its range of vehicles according to EC CAFE legislation.

Suzuki GB PLC says it will make every effort to ensure delivery to its customers who have already placed an order.

Further imminent developments in the Suzuki range to lower CO2 emissions and further improve fuel consumption include the introduction of 48V Self-charging Hybrid technology fitted as standard equipment to Swift Sport, Vitara and S-Cross models. Suzuki pioneered 12V Hybrid technology in 2016 and this is now available as standard equipment across all Ignis models as well as all Swift models from the Spring of this year.
