Design concepts of the Day: Daihatsu D-X, Pico and FC Sho Case

November 11, 2011 § Leave a comment

Daihatsu has three cute little concepts for the Tokyo Motor Show. Most eye-catching is the D-X (“D-Cross”), a stripped-to-the-bare-essentials roadster with a tiny two-cylinder engine and lightweight resin body. Its modular construction allows for different body-types around the same frame, including closed coupe or shooting-brake.

The Pico is a 1+1 tandem-seater EV, designed for city commuting; it’s said to be easily-accessible for the elderly or those with restricted mobility, as well as useful for urban deliveries.

The FC Sho Case, meanwhile, displays Daihatsu’s thinking on fuel cells; its powertrain is packaged into the floor, leaving space for a large, boxy interior which could suit either a cargo-carrying application or a multi-seater MPV. The seats of this concept fold flat, and are transparent, in order to show off the powertrain underneath. Extensive picture galleries of all three at Car Body Design.
