Daihatsu has introduced the Kopen concept at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show in Japan
Daihatsu has introduced the Kopen concept at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show in Japan.
Several hours ago Honda showed us the S660 concept which serves as a preview for a kei-car destined for Japan in 2015 and now Daihatsu is doing the same thing with the Kopen RMZ concept which announces an all-new Copen set to be launched possibly as early as Q1 2014.
Power of the funky two-seater is provided by a 660cc 3-cylinder gasoline engine coupled to a CVT that packs steering wheel-mounted paddles. Both of them share the same physical dimensions: 3395mm (133.6 inches) length, 1475mm (58 inches) width and 1275mm (51 inches) heigh.
Also at Daihatsu's stand at Tokyo Motor Show is a more rugged-looking version of the Kopen concept called XMZ which features body cladding. Both cars ride on 17-inch alloy wheels wrapped around in 165/50 tires and come with a folding metal roof.
Daihatsu says that this concept features replaceable resin body panels, while in the cabin there’s a touchscreen which handles most of the controls, along with an LCD screen.
The Japanese automaker did not say anything about the possibility of putting this concept into production.
