ShoCase Daihatsu FC – it’s electric. Moreover, its batteries are made ??using a new generation of liquid fuel cells, the creation of which didn’t use rare earth elements and precious metals.
Daihatsu PICO – a small
Daihatsu PICO – this is a conceptual “brother” of Volkswagen Nils. According to the idea of marketing of company Daihatsu, this electric car designed for older people, for local travel and business services. It has only two seats for passengers (one in the front row, another – in the rear, the latter can be folded and formed to use the space for luggage). A battery capacity Daihatsu PICO will pass on a single charge of 50-60 kilometers.
Daihatsu DX – sports
Sports car called the Daihatsu DX only for appearance, whose design is similar to the design of beach buggies. Of course, Daihatsu DX doesn’t accelerate from a standstill to a speed of 100 kilometers per hour in 5 seconds, it doesn’t have a top speed of 300 km/h.
