The vehicle featured was a highly personalized minipato police mini patrol car with modifications such as nitrous oxide, turbo and others, and with a Motocompo folding bike stowed in the back compartment.
The total fuel bill for the weekend? Putting out just 2. All wheel drive using realtime 4WD technology was available with the Q trim level. Chief among these is its fuel economy.

The Today was only intended for the Japanese domestic market. This necessitated some redesign in the rear end, because the rear window had originally wrapped around to the sides.
The original commercial model, called "Today Pro" some years, was kept in production in parallel untilwhen kei car regulations were changed. The rear axle was a torsion beam with coil springs.
