Daihatsu previews quirky concepts before Tokyo

Daihatsu previews quirky concepts before Tokyo

Daihatsu basket concept fq

There’s a large group of major automakers missing from this month’s Tokyo Motor Show, but the show is really about the cool Japanese stuff, anyway. Daihatsu is using the show to display all it’s latest quirky technology and style. Daihatsu is keeping things simple, small, and production possible.

The coolest rig at the Daihatsu stand is most likely the Basket concept, shown above, which lets you stay in touch with nature via a removable hard roof panel and fabric top for the rear seat. you have to love any car that looks so much like its name.

The Decca Decca concept is another interesting specimen. Described as a “Super Box” by the automaker, with massive swing-out doors on the passenger side that leads into a innovative, multi-configuration interior. The van’s driver’s side has only one standard door behind that is a solid panel broken up by a high window.

Daihatsu’s third concept is the e:S and looks production-ready, so expect something similar in showrooms shortly. It’s a kei car built on a shortened, existing platform, with a white roof, reduced weight and a stop/start system for increased fuel efficiency.

Check back for more updates and concept vehicles from this month’s Tokyo Motor Show.
