Daihatsu Move Canbus - Adorable Japanese Kei Car

    While I was watching Japanese TV drama series for the first time in years last week, I found some interesting Japanese car commercials. Because I don't usually watch Japanese TV show,  every TV commercials were new to me.

     As I mentioned in my previous entry, kei car, a Japanese category of small vehicles, is getting more and more popular because of how environmentally friendly these cars are. The engine is 660 cc, but it is powerful enough to drive on city roads.

   Daihatsu, one of the most famous car manufactures in Japan, has released some new kei cars recently. The TV commercial of Daihatus Move Canbus caught my eye.

       I thought this car was inspired by vintage Volkswagen bus.

    When I moved to the U.S., one of things surprising me was that most cars here were Japanese cars. Toyota, Lexus, Scion, Honda, Nissan, Mazda, Subaru, Suzuki, and Mitsubishi are all Japanese car manufactures. However, when you visit Japan, I think that you will be still surprised at Japanese cars there. You can find varieties of car colors there such as green, blue and yellow more often than the U.S. (Most cars in the U.S. are silver, black or white.) I think it's because car resale value is very low in Japan. If you want to sell your 10 year old car in Japan, your car will be estimated at as low as free. When you buy a car, you don't have to think too much about resale value in Japan. If you choose yellow or pink, it doesn't matter. That's why people in Japan choose whatever they like.
