Dinky Daihatsu kei cars take center stage at 2021 Tokyo Auto Salon


Daihatsu has previewed five crazy kei car concepts ahead of its home auto show. The 2021 Tokyo Auto Salon is set to take place from January 10–17 and Daihatsu’s stand will be a “Village Colorful Carnival” featuring heavily modified versions of its popular city cars and vans.

First up is the Copen Spyder Ver (top), which takes the cute little roadster, throws out its fabric roof and chops the windshield down for a sportier look. The Copen is lowered and features twin aerodynamic nacelles behind the seats.

Daihatsu Thor Premium Ver

The Thor Premium Ver is a boxy mini minivan with a custom teal and silver two-tone paint job, bigger wheels, side skirts and front spoiler.

Daihatsu Taft Crossfiled Ver

The Taft Crossfield is a rugged, lifted version of Daihatsu’s little crossover, complete with nudge bars, winch, light bar and roof rack. Bash plates are fitted underneath and chunky off-road tires are added to create a tiny adventure vehicle.

Daihatsu Hijet Camper Ver

For a night under the stars you’ll want to take the Hijet Jumbo Camper Ver which appears to have a tent on the bed of this cute commercial vehicle.

Daihatsu Hijet Jumbo Sportza Ver

Finally, saving the weirdest ‘for last, is the Hijet Jumbo Sportza Ver, because who wouldn’t want a spyder-style pick up with racing livery, red wheels, and a side-exit exhaust? Never change, Tokyo show.
