Article by Christian Andrei, on November 14, 2011

Daihatsu will show off four concept cars and eight production vehicles as well as several technologies at the 42nd Tokyo Motor Show. From Dec. 3-11, enthusiasts can visit the Tokyo Big Sight venue to view the exhibits. Daihatsu will be using the slogan "Big Answer from Small” at the show. It plans to illustrate its roadmap for technological innovation that can be applied in a compact car.

Daihatsu will also be displaying the D-X ("d-cross"), which has a unique and aggressive styling. Daihatsu will swap out parts of its resin-based body. As a result, its specifications could be revised into various types.

What the automaker offers with the D-X is a sense of oneness between the driver and vehicle that only a compact car provides. At the same time, it has a new form for a sports car. The D-X is powered by a two-cylinder engine with direct-injection turbo. This engine enables Daihatsu to pursue conventional technology and achieve a balance between enjoyable driving and fuel-efficiency.

The PICO two-seater electric vehicle stands for a new category of vehicle that’s slotted between light automobiles and motorized bicycles. The PICO is meant to be a model offering that accommodates social and environmental changes like the aging population, regional locations and delivery businesses.

The FC ShoCase, which is intended to be a zero-emission next-generation mobility solution, uses a next-generation unit that come with liquid fuel cells that have no precious metals. Furthermore, Daihatsu will be displaying the Mira e:S in a special color as a show car.
