Daihatsu Motor Co., Ltd. showcased its Tempo space commercial vehicle featuring a FF platform at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show, which began on October 28.
Daihatsuâ€™s President Masanori Mitsui said, â€œThe Tempo is our response to those who want a convenient car but not your typical commercial vehicle. Itâ€™s a new genre of mini commercial vehicles that offers the advantages of a passenger car.â€
Unlike traditional commercial vehicles, the Tempo offers ease-of-driving, getting in and out of the car, and other convenient features as a result of its FF platform. According to President Mitsui, the Tempo was derived from a variation of ideas. It offers the cargo space of commercial vehicles due to the same FF platform as the Wake and Tanto.
The passenger-seat side features a gull-wing door with LED lighting. A digital sign is installed on the side of the vehicle that can be used as a signboard.
