The Daihatsu Move is a kei car, produced by Japanese automaker Daihatsu since August 1995. The Move is designed to be as tall as compact cars like the Suzuki Wagon R. Daihatsu successfully sold 500,000 Moves during its first three years of production. The Move is built upon the chassis of the Daihatsu Cuore but with a taller body. The second generation Move (L900) used the same chassis as the first generation (L600). In 2002, the third generation Daihatsu Move (L150/L160) was introduced.

In October 2006, the fourth generation Move was introduced. A KF-VE-type non-turbo engine and a continuously variable transmission (CVT) were available on this model, providing superior acceleration performance and higher fuel efficiency of 23 km/L. This latest Move is also one of the few kei cars available with optional side curtain airbags. (The Honda Zest was the first.)

In addition to the 660 cc engine, the Move has been supplied with 850 cc and 1,000 cc engine for export markets.

In Malaysia, Perodua manufactures a version of the Move called the Kenari.

In China, the FAW Tianjin joint venture between First Automobile Works and Toyota produces a petrol and electrical version of the Move. The electric version is exported to the US as the Miles ZX40.

The first two generation Moves were also exported to Europe, where they also went by the JDM name. Due to poor sales, Daihatsu did not export the third or fourth generation Moves to Europe, making it strictly a domestic market model.
