Japan’s BIG small cars
May 27, 2021
Emerging at the end of the Second World War, Kei cars were designed to be cheap to produce and own. With limited engine sizes and dimensions, they started as an alternative delivery method to motorbikes and evolved into practical family cars.
The first Kei cars were basic, with a 150cc engine and little in the way of safety equipment or comforts. Over the years they became more sophisticated, powerful and safe.
