Suzuki presents a wacky selection of concept cars at the Tokyo show
6 October 2005

October’s Tokyo motor show is traditionally the wackiest show of the year and if this selection of concepts from Suzuki has anything to do with it the 2005 exhibition will be no different.

P.X. is a people carrier designed, Suzuki says, ‘For people who want to indulge their sense of enjoyment without compromising family mobility’. The streamlined modern bodyshell houses three rows of Recaro seats.

Another MPV concept is presented with the curious title of ‘Mom’s Personal Wagon’, a study of child-friendly transport. The MR Wagon concept’s friendly face hides a simple, spacious interior with clever storage spaces and a fold-down front seat for easy access to the rear seat.

Looking towards the future is Ionis, a futuristic citycar powered by a hydrogen fuel cell mounted beneath the cabin floor. The forward thinking continues inside with an entertainment system with wireless internet access to give passengers the opportunity to download music watch satellite TV. In direct contrast, the LC indulges the Japanese fashion for retro design with an unashamedly retro chrome-clad citycar with a strong 1960s influence.
