With the Japanese manufacturer celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2020, it is getting geared up with a range of initiatives and product developments that aim to see it continue for another century.

The e-Survivor is said to mirror the identity of the Jimny and Vitara, while the other highlights include the quirky XBEE (cross-bee) crossover, that will have all the off-roading ability of a 4x4, but retains the quirky looks of a crossover.

Suzuki has also announced the Carry Open-Air Market Concept that is a mobile shop van that "goes beyond being just a commercial car and offers wide possibilities from daily transportation to leisure".

Several new motorbikes have also been revealed ahead of the Japanese show, including a SV650X neo-retro bike and the Swish scooter.

The cars and bikes will star at the Tokyo Motor Show that runs from the 27th October to the 5th November.
