Daihatsu Hijet Mini Trucks

Daihatsu is one of the main manufacturers of kei class mini trucks, starting with the Hijet in the mid 60’s. Daihatsu was so innovative that they even sold an all electric version of their Hijet van from the late 60’s up through the 90’s. Since its creation it has been a workhorse for Japanese farmers and businesses of all kinds. Many variations of the Hijet can be found around the world but they all stay true to form and function.

Featured Generation: S211 Series (2008-2014)


The S211 was a minor refresh from the S200 series Hijets. The most notable change was to the engine. Called the KF-VE, it is a 3 cylinder engine with 12-valves and twin-cams. This engine greatly improved fuel efficiency for the truck, as well as drivability. The Toyota Pixis and Subaru Sambar of this era are also based on this model. The S211 Hijet has also been approved for import to the USA for off-road use. Please contact us to learn more about importing a Daihatsu Hijet.
