Suzuki Imagines a Small City Car with the Regina Concept
Today, Suzuki released initial details and photos of a new concept model for a small city car placed under the Swift.

The Japanese carmaker says that the Regina represents the firm' vision of "a next-generation global compact car with excellent fuel efficiency and low emissions thanks to lightness and superior aerodynamics".

According to Suzuki, it tips the scales at just 730kg (1,609 pounds) and has a drag coefficient at least 10% lower than that of current models in the category.

While the concept doesn't feature a powertrain, the Japanese company says that with a conventional petrol engine, the Regina could return a fuel economy of at least 32km/lt in the JC08 test cycle (72.3mpg US and 3.1lt/100km) and CO2 emissions as low as 70g/km (measured in the New European Driving Cycle).

Suzuki's Toy-Like Q-Concept Electric Mini Car
Suzuki's second concept for this year's edition of the Tokyo motorshow is a tiny city car that measures just 2,500mm long, 1,300mm wide and 1,650mm tall.

The company says that the Q-Concept offers "an entirely new kind of mobility — one that’s positioned between conventional motorcycles and cars". We'll assume that Suzuki has yet to learn about the existence of the production Renault Twizy…

Inside, the Q-Concept seats two passengers in tandem, though Suzuki says that the rear seat can be removed completely to increase the cargo area when needed.

The Q-Concept is powered by an electric motor that provides a driving range of up to 50 kilometers (31 miles) and a top speed of 60km/h (37 mph).

The Regina's interior is pretty cool. Dig the recessed sun visors, review mirror mount, flat glass displays, display graphics and "8 bit" seat pattern.
