The cute Japanese Daihatsu HiJet pickup truck will be sold at the auction. This car, perhaps, boasts the smallest cargo platform. The car sells for $ 17,900.

The Japanese company Daihatsu unveiled its HiJet small truck in 2013. It has nearly the same dimensions as another Japanese pickup truck, the Suzuki Carry, but the four-door cab layout creates literally the smallest pickup cargo bed we’ve ever seen. One of the copies of Daihatsu HiJet is for sale.

This small truck is powered by a 660 cc gasoline engine. cm, which is paired with a five-speed manual transmission, transmitting power to all four wheels.

In fact, this is a fairly similar powertrain configuration to the Suzuki Carry. It even has the same front-center engine layout.

The Daihatsu HiJet was marketed as a truck until the end of 2014, when its successor debuted with a more refined interior and improved passenger safety. It was available under different brands and names depending on the country, but they were all manufactured at the Ikeda plant in Osaka, Japan.

Interestingly, a 1.3-liter version of the car was also developed and marketed under the Daihatsu and Toyota brands.

This particular example of a small pickup truck is one of the last ones produced by a Japanese company and has pretty good standard equipment. On board you will find a temperature controlled air conditioner with a three-speed fan, power steering, a 12V outlet and more. With only about 46,670 km of mileage, it looks pretty good.

The tiny truck is currently available for $ 17,900. It is important to note that you cannot actually register it for use on public roads.
