The Nigerian-spec Suzuki Super Carry comes from India in CKD form, and is assembled at the 1,132 square metre facility in Lagos. The company’s target customers are first time buyers operating small businesses as well as farmers and fishermen, who can use the LCV as an economical people mover or for goods transportation. The rear body units will be 100% locally made.
A choice of 23 pods will be available, including van, refrigerated van, pick-up, six-seater people carrier, mobile shop, tipper unit, hopper, dustbin/trash van, ice cream shop, ambulance, fire engine and more.
In Nigeria, the Suzuki Super Carry will be powered by the G12B 1.2-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 54 kW (72.39 hp) at 6,000 rpm and 101 Nm of torque at 3,000 rpm. The Euro 2 engine will be linked to a 5-speed manual transmission.
