Without going too deep on the European Union’s 2021 emission regulations, automakers must maintain a certain fleet-wide average for C02 emissions. Despite having a small 1.5-liter gasoline engine, the Jimny actually pumps out surprisingly high levels of C02. Combine this with it being an extremely popular vehicle – wait times for a new Jimny are reportedly upwards of a year in some areas – and Suzuki’s overall average takes a hit.

As such, the Jimny will bow out after this year in Europe but here’s the catch. The standard passenger version will be cut, but a commercial version with small interior changes and no rear seats will emerge in 2021. Commercial vehicles aren’t subject to the same emission standards, so yeah, you might say Suzuki is working the system to its fullest extent. Beyond that, the Autocar India report also says a full-blown passenger version is likely to return with a different engine, but exactly when that might happen is unknown.

Suzuki GB has insisted that the Jimny 4x4 will remain on sale in the UK “in limited numbers” throughout 2020 in response to reports of the vehicle’s imminent withdrawal due to its high CO2 emissions.

The Japanese carmaker said that, following on from recent media speculation and reports of the future of the Jimny model in Europe, “Suzuki GB PLC would like to confirm that the model will remain on sale in the UK in very limited numbers throughout 2020”.


Interesting statistic:

A total of 1,221 Jimny’s were sold in 2019, according to registrations data published by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), as the brand saw its overall volumes decline by 9% to 38,519.

Surely the plural of Jimny is Jimnys or Jimnies not Jimny's !!!
