This extreme Suzuki X-Lander concept is destined for production, albeit in modified form, according to sources at the Tokyo motor show.

The X-Lander sits on the current Suzuki Jimny platform, but is powered by a hybrid powertrain that combines a 1242cc petrol engine with an electric motor of unspecified output.

As well as increasing efficiency, the electric motor is said to apportion torque to all four wheels to boost the X-Lander's low-speed off-road capability.

What's not clear is if the X-Lander is designed to show how the next generation Suzuki Jimny will look, or whether it previews an all-new model.

What is evident is that the open-top design and stripped-out futuristic interior are unlikely to make it to production without significant changes.
