Gallery: Daihatsu Prepares Three Tiny New “Kei” Cars for the Tokyo Auto...

 
The Daihatsu Pico is a tandem two-seater car with a digital ticker display wrapped around its body.

Daihatsu is proving its ability to work with a diverse line of products: The FC ShoCase is a fuel cell vehicle that contains no precious metals, while the PICO EV works in a variety of configurations and the D-X has a traditional but tiny two-cylinder engine with both direct injection and turbocharging to make the most of its power. Toyota has a controlling interest in this company, so we can expect to see some of these technologies trickle down to more widespread global products over the next decade. It’s good to know someone already knows how to build the cars of the future.
