The Changhe-Suzuki Ideal is a city car produced by Jiangxi Changhe Suzuki Automobile Company, in a joint-venture between Chinese and Japanese automakers Changhe and Suzuki, since 2003. The model is known in Brazil as the Effa M100 and in Uruguay as the Effa Ideal.
The Ideal was designed by Bertone, available initially with a 1.1-litre gasoline engine and safety items such as anti-lock braking system and airbags. It was facelifted in 2006, when it received new lights, a new grille and an updated interior.
NICE will be presenting an electric version of the Ideal called the NICE Ze-O at the 2008 British International Motor Show.
