When you’re questioning in regards to the rebadging course of, it’s finished in Japan by Daihatsu – the Perodua emblems (entrance, rear, steering wheel) and the Ativa wordmark are fitted on Malaysia-bound vehicles by DMC, and there’s no ‘T’ badge (for turbo) on the tailgate.

The e-motor powers the wheels through an HEV transaxle, which signifies that this collection hybrid mannequin works considerably like a variety extender electrical car, like Nissan’s e-Power system.

The hybrid additionally options an obtainable Sensible Pedal operate for one-pedal driving (S-PDL button is under the driving force’s AC vent, the place the ADAS buttons are), with regeneration and “engine braking” instead of stepping on the brakes. Lastly, the JDM suspension is 15 mm decrease than the common Ativa’s, and needs to be softer sprung as effectively.
