Delica Van / Coach

Responding to the rapid growth in demand for light trucks of under one-ton payload in the mid-60s, the Delica Truck with a 600 kg payload went on sale in July 1968. Features distinguishing the Delica Truck included its payload that was some 20 percent larger than other models in its class, class-topping power output, the first 3-seater in its class, soft lines using a curved windscreen and ride comfort on a par with a passenger car. In 1969, a year after the Delica Truck's launch, the Delica Light Van 500 kg one-box cargo van, Delica Route Van, and Delica Coach 9-seater passenger van were added to the lineup. In November 1971, a new engine was added, payload was increased by 100 kg and the name changed to Delica 75. As consumers became more conscious of leisure time in the early 1970s, the Delica Camping Van with a pop-up roof went on sale in 1973. Although the Delica name derives from the English delivery car, it has played an active role as a utility vehicle that goes outside the conventional commercial vehicle box from its first-generation Delica to this date.
