Suzuki Jimny hits a sales record in Australia, Wait list is still at 12 months!

Quote:
The demand for the Suzuki Jimny continues at unprecedented levels after a record sales result in September.
Quote:
Suzuki has sold more Jimnys in the first nine months of 2020 (1474) than it did for the entire 2019 calendar year (1391).
Quote:
The Suzuki Jimny was the brand's second-best selling model last month behind the Vitara SUV and ahead of the Swift hatchback.

It was the third record month in a row for the Suzuki Jimny, as dealers report demand shows no signs of abating
Quote:
People just keep coming in to buy them,” said one long-standing dealer. “I think as more of them appear in the traffic, people see them and want to buy one. If I could get more I would sell more
Quote:
After averaging a bit over 100 deliveries per month in the first six months of 2020, supply rose sharply in July (195), August (306), and September (325), all three of which were records for the nameplate.
The success of the Suzuki Jimny has led to speculation the company is considering a long wheelbase four-door wagon and a ute off the same stretched platform. However, those reports are unconfirmed.

If these are numbers Suzuki is happy with, I wonder what prevented them from bringing it here for so long! Is 1500 in a year a big ask in India? For Maruti Suzuki?

These 2 highlighted sales of 1474 and 1391 would be the monthly sales by the Punjab and Kerala dealers

The Iconic and the most desirable SUV, Suzuki Jimny and its evolution in 4 generations from 1970 - 2018 !

he Jimny didn't actually start as a Suzuki. In 1968, Suzuki purchased the manufacturing rights Hopestar ON360 because the Hope Motor Company struggled to mass-produce it.

Suzuki introduced its updated ON360 in 1970 and dubbed it the LJ10. The tweaks included replacing the original 359 cc air-cooled Mitsubishi-sourced engine with a 359-cc two-stroke, two-cylinder mill of the company's own design. With 24.66 horsepower (18.39 kilowatts) and 24.6 pound-feet (33.3 Newton-meters) of torque, the SUV wasn't very powerful, but a four-speed manual, two-speed transfer case, and part-time four-wheel drive offered impressive off-road performance.

By the end of the first generation, the company offered soft top, fixed roof, and pickup variants of the Jimny.

The company made it more comfortable to drive on the road, while still making sure the vehicle could perform on rugged terrain. There was also an emphasis on appealing more to markets outside of Japan. While the 539-cc two-stroke three-cylinder continued to be available in the domestic market for several years, the big addition to the lineup was a new 970cc four-cylinder with 51 hp (38 kW) and 59 lb-ft (80 Nm).

The third-gen Jimny arrived in 1998. It featured more rounded styling but still featured a body-on-frame chassis. Like for previous generations, Suzuki tailored a version of it to the Japanese market with kei-class-specification engine choices and had a model for the rest of the world. To appeal to European customers, Suzuki introduced a turbodiesel engine there in 2004 using a Renault-sourced 1.5-liter engine.

- Fourth Generation - 2018

The fourth (and current) generation of the Jimny returned to a boxy appearance for the SUV in 2018. In Japan, it uses a 660cc three-cylinder turbocharged engine that makes 63 hp (47 kW) and 71 lb-ft (96 Nm) of torque. Elsewhere, there is a 1.5-liter four-cylinder with 100 hp (75 kW) and 96 lb-ft (130 Nm).

The latest Jimny uses Suzuki’s Allgrip Pro AWD system. It has a two-range transfer case and part-time four-wheel drive.

Inside, there's a far more modern-looking interior, including a touchscreen infotainment system on top of the center stack.

In 2020, Suzuki had to remove the Jimny from the European market because it didn't meet emissions requirements. Later in the year, the company reintroduced the vehicle as the Jimny Light Commercial Vehicle without the rear seats.

In the 4th generation, it seems that the development of the 5-door version Jimny is underway, although it is limited to the Indian market, so it may be possible to expand the field of activity as one with higher practicality.Link1

Demand for Jimny grows, Suzuki needs to gear up! Even the non-existent 5 door Jimny has demand!!

The demand for the Suzuki Jimny in Australia is very high, even for the versions that do not exist

In Australia:

Quote:
Even with a significant increase in production in 2020, we still cannot keep up, with demand in Australia far exceeding supply in our 12-month production schedule." "This [demand] has created the largest backlog of orders we've had to date, and inquiries and orders keep growing every month
Quote:
As a result of these recent rumors, we have already had a large increase in the number of inquiries regarding the unconfirmed variants [Pickup and Jimny 5-door], which suggests that there is a huge appetite for them here in Australia. if they were ever available.
