One of the highlights on the World Motor Show calendar is the Tokyo Motor Show, or as its now known, the Tokyo Mobility Show which is hosted by the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association.
Held biannually it normally sees more concept cars than actual production cars on display which is the reason why the auto press see it as one of the ‘big five’ motor shows alongside Detroit, Geneva, Frankfurt, and Paris. For the first time in its 67-year history, the show was cancelled in 2021 due to COVID concerns, but last October it came back with a vengeance.
As to be expected there were several high-profile launches including the all-electric Infiniti Qe, Mazda Iconic SP (which looks a lot like a futuristic RX7 to me) with its hybrid rotary technology and the Lexus LF-ZC, which stands for “Lexus Future Zero-emission Catalyst” and is the first glimpse into the Lexus’ first Bio EV car.
Here is a look at what Forbes.com thought were the coolest cars at this year’s Japan Mobility Show.
Here is autocar.co.uk view on the show and the highlight for me is the Yamaha Tricera, which is Yamaha’s take on the increasingly popular electric tricycle, features a novel rear-wheel steering system that’s intended to provide “unfiltered joy” in urban environments. According to Yamaha, “Modern mobility is shifting toward automated driving, but that’s precisely why Yamaha Motor is going back to basics.”
