HAKUTO HAKUTO

HAKUTO, the only team from Japan competing for the Google Lunar XPRIZE,
is drawing on the expertise of its members—people from venture companies, universities,
and a diverse range of other private-sector organisations—to develop a lunar rover.

After receiving the Mobility Milestone Prize for proving that their rover,
one of the most compact and lightweight of all the competitors,
delivers the performance needed to function in the harsh environment of space,
Team HAKUTO is justifiably considered a frontrunner in the race.

To keep costs low, the super-compact, lightweight rover uses consumer-grade components throughout.

With each additional kilogram of payload incurring launch fees of about $1 million,
Team HAKUTO used its broad-ranging expertise to limit the lunar rover’s weight to just four kilograms.

SUZUKI SUZUKI

In 1968, Suzuki began developing a line of capable off-road vehicles.
At the heart of this effort was a dedication to creating vehicles that could go down any road and cross terrain the driver wanted to go.
With this uncompromising philosophy, Suzuki continues to pioneer a world of four-wheel drive potential.

Right now, there’s a team of experts who are working to reach an unexplored landscape that lies 380,000 kilometres away.
Supporting this team means rediscovering the philosophy we embraced almost 50 years ago and reaffirming Suzuki’s very mission.
