Japanese Kei Car

On my travels today I came across this funky little deliver van. It’s a Daihatsu Midget and is an example of the Japanese Kei (light) car. These are compact vehicles built to a specified size and engine capacity and have tax & insurance advantages in Japan. They are built as saloons, MPVs (minivans), sports cars and, as here, a commercial vehicle. They are not generally exported but are suitable for the UK because Japan also drives on the left. Not an issue here because the Midget only had one centrally located seat.
