Daihatsu has revealed three new concepts set to appear at next month’s Tokyo Motor Show.

The new concepts follow on from the eight concepts unveiled earlier this year at the Indonesia International Motor Show.

The Japanese carmaker looks certain to bring the tiny Copen convertible back to life, unveiling three versions of its new Kopen concept (new spelling included).

The Kopen concept will appear in a somewhat road-ready stance along with a more radically-styled version, equipped with a bold black outline including large wheel arches.

The 660cc three-cylinder engine from the previous Copen is also fitted to the concepts, matched with a CVT transmission and steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

It is not known if the manual transmission will survive if the Kopen goes into production.

Further subtle styling cues for a revived Copen can be seen in the D-R Estate concept, which appeared in Indonesia.

Daihatsu will also showcase its FC-Deck mini-truck at Tokyo, which measures 3,395mm in length.

The FC-Deck is powered by a fuel-cell system, although Daihatsu has also developed a suitcase-styled power generator on wheels to accompany its new concept.

Finally, there’s the Deca-Deca minivan, which appears to share the same platform as the FC-Deck mini-truck.

The Deca-Deca is fitted with rear sliding doors and can accommodate a variety of seating arrangements.
