History[edit] The Toyota
Toyota
Coaster was introduced in 1969 as a 17-passenger minibus using the same running gear as the Toyota Dyna
Toyota Dyna
of the time. Early models used the 2.0-liter Toyota R engine
Toyota R engine
with 4-speed manual transmission. With 98 PS (72 kW), an RU19 Coaster could reach a top speed of 110 km/h (68 mph).[9] Subsequent models used a variety of four and six-cylinder diesel and petrol engines, and an option of automatic transmission was later introduced. A smaller alternative was later introduced at Toyopet Store locations, based on the Toyota ToyoAce

called the Toyota HiAce
Toyota HiAce
which had the ability to carry up to 10 passengers but complied with Japanese Government regulations concerning exterior dimensions and engine displacement that the Coaster didn't. In August 1997, Toyota
Toyota
"Coaster Hybrid EV" minibus was launched, ahead of the Prius. The Coaster Hybrid, according to Toyota, became its first production hybrid vehicle.[10] Production of the Coaster Hybrid continued until 2007. The LPG Coaster, fueled by liquefied petroleum gas, was developed specifically for the Hong Kong
Hong Kong
market and its air pollution problems.[11] This kind of minibus is very common in Hong Kong. The Coaster is common not only in Singapore, Japan, Hong Kong, and Australia, but also in the developing world for minibus operators in Africa, the Middle East, and the Caribbean.[citation needed] It is widely used in Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia, Panama, and Peru
Peru
as public transportation. It is the almost the only used mini bus in public transportation in Jordan
Jordan
and the brand is used to refer to that segment by people and even by the government. These buses are imported mainly from Asia and had to have the steering wheel moved to the left and the passenger door to the other side. The chassis of the Toyota
Toyota
Coaster was also used on the Salvador Caetano Optimo and sold in Western Europe. Variants[edit]
