Suzuki MIGHTY DECK concept announced

Snapshot: Could a new Suzuki Mighty Boy be in the works?

Joining the new Ignis at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show, Suzuki’s MIGHTY DECK concept looks like a modern interpretation of the Mighty Boy which might get a new generation in the years to come as a follow-up to this concept. It has the same cute appearance with an interesting body style that combines a mini car with a pickup truck all wrapped up in a design that looks like a toy.

The vehicle is only 3395 mm long and 1475 mm wide while the height stands at 1540 mm, with power coming from a very small 658cc 3-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine teamed up with Suzuki’s S-Energy Charge electric motor as well as an automatic gearbox.

One of the most interesting features of the MIGHTY DECK concept is at the back where there’s an open load deck which can be repositioned by using the built-in automatic raise/lower system. You will also notice that it doesn’t have a fixed metal roof as Suzuki has decided to install a retractable canvas top painted in a blue shade also applied at the front and rear as well as on the concept’s sides. There’s also a wood-like finish on the center of the bumpers and on the load bed and matched on the cabin’s floor.

Stepping inside the concept, the dashboard seems to resemble the simple and clean layout of the BMW i3 as there are only a handful of physical buttons since most of the car’s functions are accessible through the built-in infotainment system. Suzuki has installed a head-up display and a folding passenger seat which is actually a great idea especially if you carry long items that don’t fit in the load bed.

The MIGHTY DECK concept will be on display at the Tokyo Motor Show starting October 30th and maybe Suzuki will tell us whether they plan on bringing back the Mighty Boy sold between 1983 and 1988.
