User Oriented Approach

Daihatsu is the company that is most connected to its customers. It achieves this through its user-oriented approach, we listen to them sincerely, and aims to create vehicles that cater to its customers’ true needs.

"Tanto" for japanese families with small children

The spacious opening of the Miracle Open Door provides outstanding convenience

Tanto: The Miracle Open Door—the door pillar is integrated into the door itself

By integrating the door pillar inside the door itself, the Miracle Open Door realizes outstanding ease of use which is highly valued by a large number of customers. Combined with the front passenger door, the Miracle Open Door provides a spacious opening some 148 cm wide. Sleeping small children can easily be carried in or out of the car, while shopping bags can be loaded with ease into either front or rear seats.

"Sigra" for Indonesian families

Realizing the capacious luggage space required by indonesian families

Sigra: Rear view

Sigra: Cabin

The Sigra provides capacious luggage space that enables three gallon-sized bottles of water, which are frequently used by Indonesian families, to be loaded without having to collapse the third row of seats. With this and other features, the car caters to the needs of local customers.

"Hijet Caddie" For customers who use their vehicles for work

A car designed to make people’s work easier

Hijet Caddie: Entering and exiting

Hijet Caddie: Loading luggage

The Hijet Caddie is designed around the concept of “easy working.” By shifting its focus from the prioritization of luggage, which was a hallmark of previous vehicles, to making people’s work easier, this mini commercial vehicle has established a new genre. The HIJET Caddie features an FF layout that incorporates the quietness and low floor developed for mini passenger cars, and so caters to the needs of recent years for an easy-to-drive and easy-to-load vehicle.

"Friendship series" for customers who require or provide care

Tanto Sloper: Wheelchair accessible vehicle

Move Front Seat Lift Custom: Passenger seat lift vehicle

In the face of increased concern for an aging population and a welfare society, Daihatsu has developed the Friendship series—two types of welfare vehicles comprising a wheelchair accessible vehicle and a passenger seat lift vehicle.

"Cast" for customers who value individuality

The simultaneous development of three versions

Cast Activa

Cast Style

Cast Sports

Three versions of the Cast were developed simultaneously: the Activa, which encourages an expanded sphere of activity; the urban and sophisticated Style; and the Sports, which inherits the driving performance of the Copen and combines it with a powerful exterior.
From the initial stages of development, the Cast focused on parts: parts which, when changed, greatly influence the car’s appearance; and parts which, through standardization, reduce development time and costs. This resulted both in short development time and low costs and in the realization of multiple variations. Daihatsu aims to cater to the diverse personalities of its customers and, at the same time, provide the Cast at an affordable price.

"Copen" for customers who demand enjoyment

A changeable structure to enable customers to choose a design that suits their preferences

Copen: DRESS-FORMATION—assembly image

To what extent can a mini vehicle generate excitement? Daihatsu wanted to build a car that makes everybody think: “Cars are fun.” This passion resulted in the COPEN.

The COPEN realizes the rigidity appropriate of a sports car via its frame alone, without having to rely on the strength of its paneling. This enables it to subvert the fixed notion that it is difficult to change a car’s design after it has been purchased. With the COPEN, customers can change the design and colors to suit their preferences even after purchase.
