In a statement, Michael Pachota – General Manager, Automotive said "We're giving people what they want – more Jimny's! With demand continuously increasing for this model we are so pleased to be able to add another variant in the line-up and continue to grow our Jimny community with this incremental supply opportunity."
"We will also maintain the fair allocation process based on customer orders with a queue system as we have done with the current Jimny in 2021, making sure the next order in the queue gets the next car to hit Australian soil, every time"
Pricing for the Jimny Lite will be announced in August 2021 when the car is scheduled to start arriving in showrooms.
