Japan Mobility Show to see Suzuki’s future personal mobility device

Suzuki Motor Corporation will make the following exhibition at JAPAN MOBILITY SHOW 2023 (organized by the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association), which will be held at Tokyo Big Sight from 26 October to 5 November 2023.

The theme for the Suzuki booth is “Answers for Excitement throughout the World”. Along with the message of “Present to our customers with diverse initiatives toward a carbon-neutral future in mobility and services unique to Suzuki,” the exhibition and stage of the booth will be set in ways visitors can feel the excitement.

With more than a dozen units for the exhibit, one concept unit stands out as both odd but at the same time makes sense as a true “can go anywhere” mobility.

MOQBA – Suzuki’s next-generation 4-legged mobility

Suzuki proposes a battery-powered next-generation mobility device by utilizing wheels along with four legs, which could be very helpful for those facing barriers in transportation such as steps, even in a region like Japan with developed public transportation.

According to Suzuki, it is a new personal mobility device that can move smoothly with wheels on flat roads, and seamlessly move on steps using its legs, much like a dog or horse.

By combining the base chassis with attachments, body variation can be changed into three modes: Chair mode, Standing mode, and Stretcher mode. “Through these modes, it contributes to the local society by not only providing the freedom of transportation but also as a mobility that transports people and objects in places where cars can hardly go through in case of situations such as emergency,” says Suzuki.

We imagine riding on the MOQBA is like riding on a horse’s saddle but with the riding characteristics of a motorcycle.
