Geneva: Suzuki G70 and Swift Range Extender unveiled image

The Japanese based automaker Suzuki has unveiled the G70 Concept, also known as the Regina, and the Swift Range Extender, at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.

The Suzuki G70, or the Regina as it is also being named back in its “homeland”, was originally presented at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show in December, and now it has just made its European debut, just before hitting the production line as a global model. The Suzuki G70 Concept is 3,500 mm ling and 1,600 mm wide, being powered by an 800 cc turbocharged petrol engine, mated to a new CVT transmission. The Suzuki G70 Concept weighs just 730 kg and it’s burning an average of 3.76 liters of fuel every 100 km (75 mpg imperial), while emitting 70 grams of CO2 per kilometer.

Besides the Suzuki G70, the Japanese based automaker has also brought the Swift Range Extender to the Geneva Motor Show, which is basically a hybrid, powered by a three-cylinder 660 cc petrol engine, mated to a generator. Suzuki says that the model can go up to 30 km on electric power with its batteries fully charge, but unlike the G70, the vehicle isn’t expected to hit the production line.
