Built to comply with the ‘Kei’ class of cars in Japan (Sub 1000cc and ultra-compact), the Daihatsu Hijet Truck is one of the smallest pick-up trucks around. In Japan, it has also been the bestselling truck in its class for the past 5 consecutive years. Both the S200 (EBD-S201P) and S100 (V-S100P) series are powered by a small 650cc engine which often lends itself to reduced vehicle tax in most countries whilst still allowing the Hijet Van to haul a fair load, up to 350kg. Power steering and air conditioning are also available.
The edginess of the Hijet Truck's front face gives it a powerful appearance. It is available in FR or 4WD, AT or MT, and its regular gasoline engine generates between 43 and 53 horsepower depending on the model. The fuel economy of the Hijet also ranges from 17.4 to 19.0km/l, making it a highly fuel efficient pickup truck no matter the configuration. Recent versions of the Hijet have been redesigned to have a larger and more spacious cabin for a more comfortable ride. To prevent heavy loads from sinking down the rear of the truck, rear 4-piece leaf springs have also been installed.
