The Suzuki Hanare and Suzuki Waku Spo are two concepts that will impress the audience at the upcoming 2019 Tokyo Motor Show.
Due to the ongoing industry slowdown in India and lower production of inventory in Japan, Suzuki Motor Corp has lowered its net sales estimates by 10.3 per cent for the current fiscal year. However, this will not stop Suzuki from going big at the upcoming 2019 46th Tokyo Motor Show. According to a report, Suzuki will bring 19 cars and 18 motorcycle models to its pavilion this time around. When the biennial show opens its door on the 24th of October 2019, Suzuki Motors will have two concept cars on display, including the Hanare and Waku Spo.
Suzuki Waku Spo is one of the concept cars that will make its global debut in Tokyo next week.
Marketed as a compact personal plug-in hybrid electric car, the Suzuki Waku Spo is an urban runabout that gets a slightly upright front end with some curvy styling elements, fender-mounted mirrors, raked windshield and a dual-tone colour option.
