Not for long, though. Word is that Toyota plans to remove the Daihatsu brand from the European market. The withdrawal will reportedly occur in 2013 and leave the minicar maker with only a handful of countries – Trinidad and Tobago, Japan, Chile and a couple of other nations – to sell its vehicles in. Daihatsu withdrew from the North American market in 1992 and ended sales in Australia in 2006.
