Suzuki Jimny to be discontinued in Europe soon; Here’s why

Suzuki has made the decision to completely stop the 3-door Jimny’s sales in the European market. The company will stop operations in the upcoming year. As per reports, the decision was made because of low sales and strict emission norms.

The latest model reportedly generates higher CO2 levels ranging from 154g/km to 170g/km (higher than normal), depending on the gearbox. These numbers forced the company to take action.


Europe only authorizes the sale of passenger automobiles classified as N1. In several European countries, the brand offered Jimny as a commercial vehicle in the above-mentioned category, with only two seats available.

According to reports, the company can release the newest models in the category, which will completely comply with the emission norms. In the midst of this, Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) will receive the majority of attention, offering customers another option.

While the 3-door Jimny’s journey ends in Europe, the vehicle, along with the 5-door  avatar, which is manufactured in India, will continue to be sold in other regions. The Indian-made version will continue to be exported to the foreign market without any restrictions.
