READ THE PREVIEW
We’ve got our sights firmly set on the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show. There’s a lot to look forward to as the OEMs bring their best tech to prove the future is much closer than we think. Explore our anticipated highlights below and check back in after the Press Days for our recap video.
TOKYO — Toyota plans to broaden its vision of future mobility at the Tokyo Motor Show with two tiny electric runabouts that predict the driver’s emotions and guide them away from danger. The Concept i-Ride and Concept i-Walk flesh out a Concept-i series of vehicles introduced with the original four-seat Concept-i car at the CES show in January.
TOKYO — Toyota Motor Corp. will expand its hydrogen fuel cell reach at the Tokyo Motor Show with a city bus it aims to commercialize next year and a roomy concept that fits somewhere between a crossover, minivan and rolling rec room.
Let’s say you’re a Japanese television executive looking for a suitable car to reboot the extremely-’80s “Knight Rider” series that gave David Hasselhoff’s career a turbo boost. But since you’ve also seen the earlier reboot attempts, you decide to go with a Japanese car to handily bypass the choice between a Mustang and a Camaro made to look like a Trans-Am.
The Toyota Century has only been updated once since its debut in 1967, a car designed, seemingly, to be ageless. And why not? The Century is great! Now, Toyota has revealed what the third-generation will look like. The new Century is scheduled to make its full debut at the 2018 Tokyo Motor Show later this month.
TOKYO — Nissan will tout its electric ambitions at this month’s Tokyo Motor Show with a new concept vehicle alongside a sporty version of its just-unveiled next-generation Leaf electric vehicle. The Nissan Leaf Nismo Concept is a pulse-pumping take on the Japanese carmaker’s flagship EV, with tuner treatment by its Nismo performance subbrand.
