  Suzuki is projected towards the future of mobility and is also thinking about the development of self-driving vehicles.

In fact, it invested in the Australian company Applied Electric Vehicles, specialized in software and electronics for autonomous vehicles, through the Suzuki Global Ventures fund, and signed a memorandum of understanding.

On this basis, the two companies are working in synergy on a common project, with the aim of producing an autonomous electric vehicle.


    The trial prototype involves the integration of Applied EV's autonomous vehicle platform, called Blanc Robot, into the scale chassis of the Jimny 4WD, with the car being electrified by Applied EV and managed by its Digital Backbone central control system.


    The Japanese brand also signed an agreement with LOMBY Inc., a startup engaged in the development, supply and support of autonomous delivery robots, to explore the possibility of creating an autonomous delivery robot based on the electric wheelchair of Suzuki.

A type of vehicle that Suzuki intends to register among those that fall within the so-called controlled micromobility.

This activity highlights the importance of the Suzuki Global Ventures fund, established in the hope that it can contribute to the development of an ecosystem of collaboration and innovation between large companies and startups.
