Hope Motor Company was a Japanese car company bought by Suzuki in 1968. In December 1967, they released the HopeStar ON360, which in Japanese is called "miwa (三輪)" or "three wheels", with a Mitsubishi 360cc two-stroke, straight-2 ME24 engine producing 21 bhp. The ON360 had a 4WD layout. While 100 engines were purchased from Mitsubishi, most sources state that only 15 ONs were finished, all in 1968.
