Next-gen Avanza to be based on Daihatsu HY Fun Concept?

KUALA LUMPUR: The 2019 Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show, commonly referred to GIIAS, has finally opened its gates for the public. And one thing that’ll instantly grab everyone’s attention is the Daihatsu HY Fun Concept. In the morning it was briefly uncovered for Jusuf Kalla, Indonesia’s Vice President and is scheduled for an official world debut later today.

The stylish and ultra-modern Daihatsu concept is an MPV with a hybrid heart underneath, and it gives us a clue about the automakers future offering for the region. It is to be noted that it is a hybrid car and not an electric one. Daihatsu sells affordable car in Indonesia and Malaysia, well in the later via Perodua, its leading sister brand in the region.

 Daihatsu HY Fun Concept FRONT

It was only yesterday when Datuk Zainal Abidin Ahmad, Perodua’s president and CEO said that the automaker won’t straightway jump to full EVs but start its electrification journey through hybrid cars. He further said that EVs aren’t a perfect fit for the local market yet, as the country derives most of its electricity via non-renewable resources like coal and gas rather than hydropower as done by developed countries. The same goes for Indonesia as well.

 Daihatsu HY Fun Concept SIDE

Therefore, the most likely eco-technology is hybrid. At the Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show 2018, P2 showed Daihatsu hybrid tech. Like any other parallel hybrid, the non plug-in system here works just fine, and it’ll use either an electric motor, an internal combustion engine, or both.

Daihatsu HY Fun Concept showcased is a three-row MPV with virtual reality games for passengers. It can take in six adults at a time. The first two rows get individual seats and can swivel around, allowing passengers to face one another. In terms of dimensions, it’s close to ongoing Avanza and Xenia and therefore could be viewed as their next-gen inspiration.
