Toyota will take full control on Daihatsu small cars

Toyota will take full control on Daihatsu small cars

The world’s largest automaker Toyota would buy out the rest of minivehicle unit Daihatsu - an all-stock deal worth about $3 billion and part of its strategy to strengthen its push into compact cars for emerging markets.

Toyota acquired a controlling interest of 51 percent in Daihatsu in 1988. But now it is raising its stake to 100 percent by a reciprocal share-swap agreement that will see Daihatsu's other shareholders take 0.27 shares in the larger company for each share in the smaller.

This move will help to improve Daihatsu small cars by having a unified strategy in the sengment, although the companies will keep their management structures and "engage in friendly competition". Toyota will focus its development efforts on environment, safety, user experience, and comfort, while Daihatsu will focus on cost-saving and fuel efficiency for its small cars. 

"This is an opportunity for us both to stop feeling that we need to go it alone, and trust each other to take full advantage of our respective strengths. In other words, we can now focus on our core competencies. That, I believe, is the key to achieving and sustaining global competitiveness." said Toyota President Akio Toyoda

  • Fire Risk: BMW Recalls 185,000 Cars TODAY
    19 Apr 2019

    The recall expansion covers 3 Series, 5 Series and Z4 models from the 2006 model year. The problem has been traced to irregularities in the manufacturing process that could allow moisture to occur near the PCV valve heater and lead to a short circuit. The PCV valve is an emissions device that keeps pollutants created by an engine from being released into the atmosphere. It also helps keep the engine oil clean and prevents crankcase pressure from building up. BMW warns its customers to stop driving the vehicle if there is smoke coming from the engine, or if the driver smells smoke or plast...
