The history of the Japanese automobile Daihatsu brand which specializes on release of midget, functional cars totals more than hundred years. This car maker is a live legend in Japan, Daihatsu cars are known around the world for the compactness and functionality. For fun the Daihatsu company is called the biggest producer of small and compact cars. At first cars of this brand at many raised a smile, but later when compact Daihatsu cars in a mass order started appearing on roads of Asian megalopolises, compactness and singularity of design already surprised nobody.
So, the history of the big producer of small cars began in 1907 when the group of scientists of university of Osaka founded the Hatsudoki Seizo Co company. Ltd. The newly made company specialized on production of industrial engines at first on gas, and later and on gasoline. For the next 23 years the Hatsudoki Seizo Co company. Ltd. I released exclusively industrial engines for a land and water transport.
In 1930 Japanese presented the first automobile creation, and it is possible to call it the car with great reserve, it was rather three-wheeled creation. Its simplicity in management became a counter of this three-wheeled vehicle and available price policy, plus still this autocreation was assessed with the minimum tax and perfectly maneuvered on narrow Japanese small streets.
The relative success of this model promoted expansion of a model range at the expense of compact trucks. These trucks weren't in demand as the corresponding infrastructure wasn't developed. Japan in the thirties actively prepared of the XX century for war, therefore the Hatsudoki Seizo Co company. Ltd secured many orders from military and opened one more plant.
In 1937 Japanese created the first four-wheel compact car which, alas, wasn't in demand. During war and after war Japanese continued to let out the production, but in very small scales.
From the beginning of the Korean war inexpensive three-wheeled trucks started being in demand.
In the early fifties management of the Hatsudoki Seizo Co company. Ltd decided to be engaged in production for export. It was for this purpose accepted the decision on renaming of the Hatsudoki Seizo Co company. Ltd on Daihatsu. In 1951 the world was seen by the Daihatsu Bee model. This car was used often as a taxi.
