The Mazdago is a three-wheeled open "truck" that was first produced in 1931 and resembled a motorcycle with an open wagon or truck bed. It was steered with handlebars and powered with an air-cooled one-cylinder engine/transmission combination unit. It was sold by Mitsubishi in Japan. It was considered to be the first autorickshaw. Over the years, it would be produced in different variants and spawned other similar designs such as the Hopestar and Daihatsu Midget. It was also the first vehicle manufactured by Mazda. It was replaced in the post-war era by an entire range of three-wheeled Mazda trucks, such as the K360 and T2000. It was replaced by the Mazda Porter.
