Tokyo Motor Show SUBARU Presentation Information
Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd. (FHI) is presenting the concepts and technologies used in developing its commercial vehicles such as the Subaru Sambar, its mini-commercial vehicle for the domestic market, under the theme "Subaru Commercial Vehicles - the Professional Choice" at the 34th Tokyo Motor Show.
FHI will demonstrate the Sambar's high load capacity, comfort, economy, safety and reliability levels - the most important requirements for commercial vehicles. At the same time, displays of a variety of Sambar versions including special show models and models intended for sale will demonstrate the high level of versatility across the series.
The Sambar series, the centerpiece of the Subaru stand at the motor show, is well received in the Japanese market as a good-natured commercial vehicle, providing a large cargo space and comfortable cabin with ample leg room thanks to its full-cab body. Furthermore, it benefits from good traction due to its rear-mounted engine layout, stable running ensured by its four-wheel independent suspension and a high degree of safety in the event of a collision courtesy of its chassis frame which has superior impact absorbency as well as its Ring-Shaped Reinforcement Frames.
