Daihatsu HSC Concept

Daihatsu proposed a next-generation small car concept that is friendly to the Earth and its people. The HSC has safe design that used practical technologies to achieve both excellent fuel consumption performance and space to seat 4 adults comfortably. The car utilizes a flat floor and floating image long-slide seat. The fuel consumption is being improved thanks to an efficient Power unit that combines factors including reduced friction, improved fuel combustibility and increased compression ratio.

Daihatsu proposes a next-generation small car concept that is gentle to the Earth and its people, for all those people who want to choose a car that is actively kind to the environment. The HSC, or Heart & Smile Mover, is a proposal for a new sedan style based on ease of use and safety design that utilizes practical technologies to achieve both excellent fuel consumption performance and space to seat four adults comfortably.

While maintaining space that accommodates four people in comfort, it achieves a low CD value of 0.28 that contributes to improved fuel consumption through a sleek design that makes use of a wing-shaped cabin cross-section and a catamaran-like underbody that extends past the wheels to reach all along the body. At the same time, engine heat is exhausted out of the front wheel disc, to ensure that a thorough aerodynamic control design is maintained.

The car uses a flat floor and floating image long-slide seat. And with satellite switches, operating systems concentrated on a floor control tower, and a liquid crystal monitor meter, it offers all-new information displays.

Characteristics
-Use of double doors through elimination of the B pillar, and of flat floors, for a space that is easy to get in and out of.
-4.1L/100km fuel consumption is achieved through an efficient Power Unit combining factors including reduced friction, improved fuel combustibility and increased compression ratio together with CVT, Idle Stop System and aerodynamic control design with CD value of 0.28.
-Lightweight, safe frame, with side and back monitors plus 11-inch large monitor to reduce dead spots.
- Offers comfortable habitability for 4 adults while also achieving advanced aerodynamic performance.
