The vehicle will likely be powered by a one-litre engine and priced at less than $7 200 (about R43 000).

The car will be developed in Japan, exploiting the expertise of Toyota group mini-vehicle specialist Daihatsu, the newspaper said without identifying its sources.

Savings will be achieved by keeping parts and materials costs low in addition to manufacturing the car and procuring parts mainly in emerging markets, the Nihon Keizai reported.
