T h e   6 6 0 cc   E r a  1990 ~)

Because regulations only restrict physical size and engine displacement and latterly outright power, manufacturers have been able to introduce many advanced technologies to the class.  As a result, kei-cars are often available with forced-induction enginesautomatic and CV transmissionsfrontrear, and 4WDair conditioningGPS, and many other features.

In 1990 the engine capacity was expanded to 660cc to aid high-speed performance and the increased weight of new safety equipment.  However, since 1998 tighter safety regulations have also necessitated a slightly larger body.  Most of the vehicles sold today are termed a ‘tall boy‘ or ‘tall wagon‘ because of their appearance, using 4-doors, a 1-piece hatchback, and expanded head room.

Starting in 2011, the Toyota Motor CorporationTMC ) launched its first minicar, the ‘Pixis Space‘, which is actually a rebadged Daihatsu Move.  It is expected to increase competition in the minicar sector.  Currently, Nissan Motors is in partnership with Mitsubishi Motors, which produces the minicars for Nissan namely the ‘Nissan Otti‘, while Honda’s minicar sales total around a quarter of its overall sales.
