The first Reliant Regent was completed, which was visually similar to an oversized motorcycle. The 1950s version of the 10cwt van was equipped with a few more luxuries that included sliding windows in the doors rather than the canvas sidescreens. A larger 12cwt Regent and Prince Regent was also produced. Production of the Regent continued until 1954 when Reliant produced their first 3-wheeled car, the Reliant Regal.
