Tokyo motor show highlights - Daihatsu D-X
The eye-catching red model achieves this versatility by having removable body panels that can be swapped around to create various styles of car.
Power comes from a two-cylinder, turbocharged petrol engine that will go beyond the concept to feature in Daihatsu’s production range.
It won’t make Europe, of course, since Daihatsu pulled the plug on sales there earlier this year. However, I can see it fitting in nicely around Tokyo.
Japanese brands need to keep coming up with cars that can be personalised, given that Mini is on a major brand offensive there; something like the D-X could be just the trick.
