1999 Suzuki PU3 Commuter

Presented at the 1999 Tokyo Motor Show is this easy-to-drive personal vehicle that can be equipped with any one of three power trains: gasoline, hybrid, or electric motor. The PU3-commuter is designed to drive "just like a scooter," and it's not much longer, at 2675 millimeters, or barely eight feet, bumper-to-bumper. The PU3 could meet a wide range of market demands because it can use three different powertrains, an internal combustion engine, a battery-powered electric motor, or a gasoline/electric hybrid package.
