The Toyota Coaster is a single-decker minibus produced by Toyota Motor Corporation. It was introduced in 1969, with the second generation introduced in 1982, followed by the third generation in 1993 and the fourth generation in late 2016. In Japan, the Coaster is sold exclusively at Toyota Store dealerships. Since 1996, the Toyota Coaster is also sold under the name Hino Liesse II.
In Japan, the Coaster was formerly produced by Toyota Auto Body at its Yoshiwara plant. In December 2016, after the launching of a revised Coaster, production was transferred to the Honsha plant of a Toyota Auto Body subsidiary, Gifu Auto Body.
A number of unlicensed clones of third generation Coasters have been (and are still) made in China, including Jiangnan Motors’ JNQ5041/JNQ6601, Joylong Motors‘ HKL6700, Golden Dragon‘s XML6700 and Sunlong Bus‘ SLK6770
