The Daihatsu Tanto Exe and Subaru Lucra are almost identical Kei car produced by Japanese Automotive Manufacturers Daihatsu and Subaru. The production version made its debut at the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show and was launched on December 24, 2009 as Daihatsu and April 20, 2010 as Subaru. The Tanto Exe and Lucra was designed to compete with models such as the Honda Life, Nissan Moco and Suzuki Wagon R. The Daihatsu Tanto Exe Custom, a more sports-oriented version of the Tanto Exe with sports styling, was launched simultaneously. The Daihatsu Tanto Exe and Tanto Exe Custom are both available with a 659cc petrol engine, mated to a 4-speed automatic gearbox on front wheel drive models and CVT on four wheel drive models.
Due to Subaru's strengthened alliance with Daihatsu and Toyota (announced October 3, 2008), Subaru has been able to launch the Lucra to market. Essentially the Subaru Lucra is a rebadged Daihatsu Tanto Exe, and the Subaru Lucra Custom is a rebadged Daihatsu Tanto Exe Custom.
