Japanese Used Car for Sale

Suzuki automobile sales in Japan set to reach 20 million units

Monday, February 1st, 2010

Suzuki Motor Corporation is pleased to announce that its cumulative automobile sales in Japan are on track to reach 20 million units*1 by the end of January 2010.

Suzuki began offering automobiles in 1955 with the Suzulight, the forerunner of today’s minivehicles. Subsequent highlights of Suzuki’s history as a manufacturer of minivehicles include the 1961 launch of the Suzulight Carry, which evolved into today’s Suzuki Carry mini truck; the 1970 launch of the Jimny, which had full-fledged four-wheel-drive capability; the 1979 launch of the Alto, with which Suzuki laid the foundations of Japan’s current market for mini vehicles; and the 1993 launch of the Wagon R, which helped expand the market thanks to outstanding user-friendliness.

Suzuki also enjoys success as a manufacturer of compact cars. Its distinctive, appealing compact-car offerings began in 1965 with the Fronte 800, continued with models such as the Cultus*2 and Escudo*3, and moved into a new phase in 2004 with the launch of Suzuki’s first world strategic model, the Swift.

A philosophy of creating customer-focused, value-packed products underpins Suzuki’s ongoing success as an automobile manufacturer. To mark the 20-million-unit domestic sales milestone, Suzuki has designed commemorative versions of five models and will launch them in Japan on 21 January.
