Tokyo 2017: Suzuki e-Survivor Is The SUV To Survive An Apocalypse In

We’ve seen our fair share of concept vehicles; most of them tend to look advanced and futuristic, but few give the impression that they are tough enough to survive anything more severe than a speed bump.

Enter the Suzuki e-Survivor concept being shown at the ongoing Tokyo Motor Show for the first time; it draws upon Suzuki’s experience producing the likes Jimny and Vitara to give us a glimpse a rough-and-tumble SUV of the future.

Measuring 3,460 mm long, 1,645 mm wide, and 1,655 mm tall, the e-Survivor's appearance harks back to the early-generation convertible versions of the Jimny.

Unlike most concepts that we know, the e-Survivor is built on a ladder frame chassis and has long-travel suspension to tackle severe conditions. Separate front and rear electric motors provide an electronically-controlled four-wheel drive system.

Suzuki states that the vehicle is ready to support autonomous driving, and that it is a ‘realistic vehicle of the future’ - prelude to a future Jimny successor, perhaps?

Prefering his cars to come with four disc brakes, independent rear suspension, and manual transmission, Kon prioritizes mechanical sophistication over outward appeal. Admires cars built to exceed the sum of their parts and appreciates vehicles engineered with integrity.
