Suzuki Jimny: Vom beliebten Geländewagen zum italienischen Polizeiauto im Maiella-Nationalpark



The Suzuki Jimny transforms into a police vehicle in Italy

This compact off-road vehicle is being deployed by the Carabinieri in the Maiella National Park located in the Abruzzo region

In Germany, its price has reached €29,490, even without a rear seat, qualifying it as a commercial vehicle. Nevertheless, the">ki Jimny maintains a strong fan base. However, by summer 2024, this 3.65-meter long off-roader will be discontinued in the German market. Meanwhile, in Italy, the Jimny is stepping into a role of public service, as reported by our colleague Alessandro.

When the going gets tough, you need a legitimate off-road vehicle. That's exactly what the Suzuki Jimny is – a bold statement in a world dominated by SUVs and crossovers designed for city driving.

Thus, it's unsurprising that the forestry branch of the Carabinieri opted for the compact Japanese SUV for their duties within Maiella National Park in the Abruzzo region. They have chosen four of these vehicles to carry out surveillance and to provide initial emergency responses across a vast expanse of 75,000 hectares that encompasses 39 municipalities.

The Japanese automaker's Jimny has already earned the trust of the Italian military and police forces in active service. There are about a hundred units already deployed in patrol duties, yet this compact vehicle from Japan has not been utilized in forest conservation efforts until now.

As evident from the images, the paint job doesn't significantly deviate from the classic Carabinieri scheme, except for the inclusion of the emblem denoting "Comando Unità Forestali Ambientali e agroalimentari Carabinieri".

The vehicle in question is the familiar Jimny, now exclusively approved as an N1 'PRO' truck (as per our review), equipped with a 1.5-liter gasoline engine that delivers 102 horsepower, Allgrip four-wheel drive, and customized by the Totani dealership in L'Aquila to meet the technical requirements of the forestry command, complete with lighting, signal lights, and protective gear.

The Italian Ministry of Environment and Energy Security has funded the procurement of vehicles specifically for safeguarding a national park. Suzuki was chosen as the supplier due to the off-road capability and compact size of their vehicles, which are ideally suited for navigating the challenging and narrow dirt paths within the park.

No Fiat Panda 4×4, which would seem like an obvious choice for Meloni's nationally-focused government? Well, that particular model simply isn't available anymore. This is probably one of the reasons for choosing the Jimny.

During the formal handover ceremony, which occurred in the atmospheric setting of the Abbazia del Santo Spirito al Morrone, President and CEO of Suzuki Italia, Massimo Nalli, was present and made the following statement:

Suzuki operates on a global scale, yet within Italy, it's considered a minor player. The vast majority of Italians, 97 out of 100, do not drive a Suzuki vehicle. Our production stands at 40,000 vehicles annually. However, those 40,000 Jimnys really pack a punch as they embody something that we, along with numerous other car manufacturers, consistently preach but they actually deliver – the core values of our brand.

Massimo Nalli hands over the keys of the Suzuki Jimny to the Carabinieri Forestali.

The top representative from the Japanese manufacturing company also humorously commented on the distinctiveness of the Suzuki Jimny, saying, "It's gratifying to see our rivals make the mistake of abandoning designs that are advantageous in specific scenarios. We're equipped with hybrid technology, we're going to incorporate electric technology, and we possess authentic off-road capabilities!"
