Daihatsu Kopen concepts revealed ahead of Tokyo Motor Show debut

Daihatsu is bringing two Kopen concepts to next month’s Tokyo Motor Show, previewing a production model, which will reportedly follow next year.

Two Kopen concepts are both 3395mm in length, 1475mm in width, 1275mm in height and are powered by a three-cylinder 660cc engine linked to a CVT with steering-wheel mounted paddles.

The blue and orange concepts are RMZ versions, while the green one is the XMZ model, featuring body cladding for a more rugged approach.

Interior is quite minimalist with little buttons, showing a mix of suede, leather and carbon fibre.

Daihatsu, the oldest Japanese automaker has been going through rough times, especially in Europe. Because of low sales it ceased all sales across Europe earlier this year.

Daihatsu was the first Japanese automaker to start sales in UK back in 1966 and perhaps the new Kopen is the one that opens the doors for business again…
