Suzuki is a Japanese motor company that manufactures cars, motorcycles, four wheel drive vehicles, and a variety of other engines. The history of the Suzuki company is long and interesting. It all started in 1909 when the founder, Michio Suzuki, founded Suzuki Loom Works. The focus at this time was on monetizing the huge silk industry in Japan. The first 30 years that the company was in business were focused on the production and development of the weaving machines.
In 1937, Michio Suzuki decided that the next business adventure would be a car. The first Suzuki car was a compact and innovative car for its time with a four cylinder engine. It put out 13 horsepower. When World War II started production was placed on hold due to cars being declared a non essential item. When the war was finished, production started again. Japan was in dire need of affordable and reliable transportation. In 1952 the Power Free had a 36 cc output which resulted in one horsepower with the 2 stroke engine.
In 1954 Suzuki had changed the name to Suzuki Motor company. The 1955 Suzuki Suzukilight was sold with front wheel drive, rack and pinion steering, and four wheel independent suspension. These designs were not common on cars during that time period. Production of motorcycles remained constant during this time as well.
Over the years Suzuki has grown and developed amazingly. Cars are still in production today. In 2016, Suzuki was actually the eleventh biggest automotive manufacturer in production worldwide. A series of vehicles was released over the years including the 1977 Cuervo which was a 2 stroke mini vehicle. In 1983 the Might Boy was released which was a 4 cycle mini commercial vehicle. In 2002 Suzuki achieved 30 million auto sales worldwide. In 2003 they released their first hybrid, the Kei. I’m 2006 they released the XL7 mini crossover 4 wheel drive vehicle.
