Beginnings of Suzuki

The company was founded in 1909 by Michio Suzuki, and the company initially began to produce weaving looms.
In 1929 a new weaving machine model was built and exported.
The Japanese, however, constantly worked on a new development strategy and this is how the idea of creating a small, cheap car was born.
In 1937, several prototypes were developed, in which the 0.8-liter engine that could produce 13 HP was responsible for the drive.
During World War II, the Japanese government recognized that civilian passenger car production is not of strategic importance to the economy. Michio Suzuki returned to the production of weaving machines and temporarily abandoned work on the car.

Moped Suzuki

Before the first car was created, in 1952 a Power Free bicycle was constructed, which was equipped with a two-stroke internal combustion engine. The moped could also be powered by human muscles. The vehicle was a great success, and the company received approval for the first motor, which was called Diamond Free. A year after its premiere, 6,000 units were produced per month and it was decided to change the company name to Suzuki Motor Corporation.

First Suzuki car

The first Suzuki car appears in 1955. The small vehicle was named Suzulight, and was powered by a 16 HP engine. He stood out among others in that the front and rear suspension used double wishbones and coil springs, and the steering was equipped with a rack and pinion mechanism. Buyers could opt for the sedan, minivan and pick-up variants. In the mid-1950s, the Colleda motorcycle series debuts. It was the first Japanese motorcycle equipped with a speedometer mounted in the headlight.
