First SS30V / 40V type (1979-1984)

1979(Showa54) Released in May.Light passenger carFronte OfCommercialVersionSister carIs.The model is H-SS30V. "Light bonnet vanCalled ""Tax savingCreated the "type light passenger car" genre, and then light carsMarketHad a great influence on.At that time, Suzuki Motor Co., Ltd.The presidentShortly after taking officeOsamu SuzukiHowever, it was the first new model to be spearheaded and commercialized after taking office as president, and it became a memorable model for Osamu Suzuki himself who firmly established his position.

1970 eraSince the mid-term, the Japanese mini passenger car market has been in the midst of turmoil and stagnation before and after the emission regulation measures and the transition to the 550 cc standard, and each company is a conventional model.Displacement・ The tea was stagnation due to the expansion of the vehicle width, and new developments were being sought.[Annotation 1]..Suzuki's exhaust gas countermeasure engine development is sluggish,ToyotaCompete by messenger fromDaihatsu industryIt was in a difficult situation, such as purchasing a made engine and installing it in its own mini passenger car. Osamu Suzuki, who took office as president in June 1978, planned a breakthrough in the development of an inexpensive new model car that returned to the origin of the basic car.

At this point, the development of a new mini passenger car that should be the next fronte is progressing considerably, and it was planned to be released in 1978, but Osamu Suzuki said, "One year postponement of new car release" and "Full planning" It was decided that the concept of the new model car would be significantly revised due to the intention of Osamu.

In Japan at that time, the price was over 15% for mini passenger cars.tax rate OfExcise taxWas imposed.ButLight bonnet vanincludingCommercial vehicleExcise tax was exempted, which was a great advantage in terms of taxation.Suzuki plans a product setting called "a light commercial vehicle (light bonnet van) that functions as a two-seater light passenger car in the front seats" that can legally save taxes by taking advantage of this tax gap.shopping,childrenUse a car to pick up and drop offHousewifeOf the layerneedA new aim was to arouse.At Suzuki during developmentMarket researchAt that time, it was said that the basic number of passengers in a mini vehicle was 1-2.データIt was backed up by the market merchandise of a van that can secure the comfort of the front seats as much as a passenger car.[Annotation 2].

Pricing has also become bold.General light passenger cars of the same period were new cars in the price range of over 60 yen, and a high excise tax was added to this.On the other hand, market research revealed that the used car market in Japan at that time was selling well for used cars of about 40 to 50 yen, and Osamu Suzuki aimed for demand in that class, and the market price was about 45 yen. The aim was to provide a new, inexpensive car.In order to secure profits with this price setting, the manufacturing cost had to be kept to about 35 yen, which was extremely low even at that time.[3].. Along with the scolding that "If you want to achieve the goal, remove the ashtray, spare tire, and even the engine," Osamu Suzuki, the person in charge of the development department, was given a strict goal.Seiichi Inagawa(Managing director at that time, later Chairman Suzuki) and other engineers put the highest priority on cost reduction and thoroughly pursued a review of manufacturing costs within the range where there is no safety problem.

The basic configuration is a two-box style that adopts a front-wheel drive system, the volume inside the car is fairly large, and while it had a fairly modern appearance at that time, it is mechanically basic from the old engine (T2A) of the conventional model. Diverted the design2-stroke engine(T5B), rearsuspensionCheap and compact, but old-fashionedLeafRigidAdopt[Annotation 3]It was devoted to a simple low-cost structure.Exhaust gas regulationsIs looseCommercial vehicleBecause[Annotation 4], CosttorqueIt was easy to adopt a 2-stroke engine, which is advantageous in terms of.The rear seats were foldable and very small due to restrictions as a commercial vehicle (the loading space must be equal to or greater than the space of the rear seats), but it was actually divided into two seats, so it was a big problem. There wasn't.Front-wheel drivePower steeringIs a model before it was generalized in compact cars, and the plate-type two-spoke steering wheel has a larger diameter, and the rack-and-pinion type steering mechanism and maneuverability are taken into consideration.At the time when the front wheel disc type was becoming popular, the brake was a slightly lower grade 2-wheel drum type, but because it was a lightweight car, the braking force commensurate with its performance was secured.

Everywhere, it's the exact opposite of the ever-increasing price of mini passenger cars.FeaturesIt was a concise specification with the highest priority.The equipment of the simple body, which was assembled with a small number of large press members, was made extremely simple both inside and outside.Integrally molded simple moldingResinMadeDashboardAnd instrument panel, front seat with integrated headrest, does not look good but can meet the necessary functions at a low pricerubberFloor mat madeplywoodRear seats with a backboard, inexpensive gray paintsteelMadebumper,Electric motorHand push without using at allpumpExpression window washer[Annotation 5]Etc. are the features.The part where the lining of the door etc. can be omitted is painted with an iron plate, the keyhole for opening and closing the door is only on the driver's side, and the keyhole on the passenger's side that is not necessary is omitted (the key that fits the key cylinder was left. This is to increase the mass production effect by sharing the door panel with the model with the specification to install the cylinder).The large rear flip-up hatch gate was promoted as one of the conveniences of Alto, and all cars were equipped with a rear hatch damper, but the hinge on this gate is also simplified as an exposed external structure. there were.

Initially, it is a mono (single) grade, and the equipment is not differentiated within the model, and the standard equipmentheaterMore than 50 types of additional equipment, including radios and cigarette lighters, are mostly constructed by dealers.OptionsIt was set to supplement with[Annotation 6].

As a result of these efforts, the initial plan of 45 yen could not be achieved, but the main unit price of "47 yen" was realized, which is a surprisingly low price for a new mini vehicle in 1979.[Annotation 7]..It was about 10 yen cheaper than the pre-tax price of the fronte's cheapest grade car.This price is the convention[Annotation 8]BeatstrategyIt was also epoch-making in that it was the first nationally unified vehicle body price (one price) in the automobile industry.We can offer equal prices to customers all over Japan, and we can offer them all over Japan.媒体Equally "Alto 47 yenEffectivePropagandaIs now possible.In addition, the merit of exemption from excise tax has been added, and the real price difference with other companies' light passenger cars, which are competing models, has become significant.

When the Alto, which adopted red as the image color with the appeal to female users in mind, was announced, its exceptionally low price shocked the market.The number of units sold after the launch slightly exceeded the initial target of 5,000 units per month and reached 1 units, soon.Have a large number of back ordersIt became a popular model.Due to the increase in production, the factory was urgently expanded. Following the success of "Alto", other mini carsCar makerFollow the sameConceptLaunched a light commercial vehicle, cultivated demand for a "second car."In addition, Suzuki, which was the only Japanese automobile manufacturer to focus on 2-stroke engines with steady profits from Alto sales, is working to expand the 4-stroke engine production system through factory capital investment, and is switching to 4-stroke engines for its main models including Alto. I was able to accelerate[Annotation 9].
