Preview Tokyo Motor Show: Boxes from Daihatsu
In addition to the Basket and the Deca Deca, Daihatsu will be unveiling two more jolly little vehicles at the Tokyo Motor Show. Here too, the designers have decided that the cube is the optimum shape. The e:s is so named to refer to its dual qualities – eco & smart. And it does indeed resemble the Smart. This 700kg lightweight has its world premiere in Tokyo and is claimed to do 85 miles to the gallon (3.3 L/100km). The Tanto Exe is set to woo purchasers by virtue of its good-looking cabin. There is a second version, the Tanto Exe Custom, which can be supplied to individual specification and therefore qualifies as a 'superbox'.
