Global debut for new Suzuki Alto in Paris

7 August 2008 | The Paris International Motor Show (Mondial de l'Automobile), to be held from 2-19 October 2008, is the venue for Suzuki Motor Corporation to exhibit an array of new models and concept cars. At its Stand 302 in Hall 3, the company hosts, among others, the world premiere of the all-new Alto.

The all-new Alto builds on the strengths of Suzuki's knowledge of small-car development. It combines eye-catching style with high fuel efficiency and low CO2 emissions. The new compact car promises light weight achieved through downsizing yet provides ample interior roominess and comfort. For the compact body, Suzuki designers tailored a stylish, sporty and youthful look that simultaneously exudes solidity and urban energy.

Suzuki seeks to further strengthen the environmentally conscious advantages of its products and aims for further reductions of their impact on the global environment. One way to achieve this is fuel cell technology. The latest two fuel-cell models will be exhibited in Paris: the first is the SX4 FCV and is equipped with a GM-made high-performance fuel cell stack, a Suzuki-developed 70MPa hydrogen tank, and a light, compact capacitor. The second is the 'crosscage' that features a simple, compact, and lightweight air-cooled fuel-cell power system from British specialist company Intelligent Energy, plus a high-performance lithium-ion secondary battery.

The Suzuki stand will also include other products that embody Suzuki's 'Way of Life!' message. The lineup will include production vehicles such as the Swift, Grand Vitara, SX4 and Splash. In addition, the SX4 WRC car as well as the SERT endurance GSX-R1000, will show Suzuki's motorsport spirit.
