Huh? What the Heck Happened to This Toyota Tundra? It’s Not a Tundra At All!

This is the Tundar!

Take a look at this mini truck! It looks like a caricature of the new 2022+ Toyota Tundra, but it appears to be very real. It’s designed by the Sino Vehicle Hub company. It appears to be made in China and it is called the “Tundar” (not Tundra).

It appears that somebody simply cut the middle out of what would be a full-size Tundra truck to narrow the chassis. While many parts resemble the new U.S.-market Tundra, it may not actually share any body panels with the Toyota truck. It’s powered by a 1.0-liter Isuzu-sources gasoline engine. It is a 2WD little pickup.

The engine is hooked up to a 5-speed manual transmission. The bed is small by any standard that we are used to, but the tailgate still has “TUNDRA” stamped into the metal. This tiny pickup is rolling on 13-inch wheels and it does not appear to have a hitch (at least not the model that is pictured).

Would you drive this golf cart of a pickup?
