Suzuki showed a turbocharged motorcycle engine. Kawasaki a supercharged bike that’s definitely not the flagship H2R, and Yamaha a leaning three-wheeled trike. But, what’s it all mean? Let’s explore the bikes (and more) of the Tokyo Motor Show.
Subaru claims that this limited-edition Impreza WRX STI S207 “aims to be the world’s most enjoyable vehicle.” What vehicle, exactly, will it have to dethrone for that title?
Toyota is one of the few still trying to make hydrogen a thing, and nobody really seems to be as interested as with all the electric concepts spewing out of Europe. Toyota’s FCV Plus is trying really hard to change that, offering to not only run itself with hydrogen, but power your home as well.
One of the more seemingly production-ready concepts to emerge from the crazyfest that is the Tokyo Motor Show is the Toyota S-FR sports car. But with the Scion FR-S/Toyota GT86/Subaru BRZ already in the lineup, many have wondered if this sports car is destined to be its replacement.
The Tokyo Motor Show is here, and you know what that means: automotive blue balls! That’s right, it’s the time when we get to stare at sweet concept cars that won’t make it to our roads until they’ve been sucked dry of every ounce of soul and character! Awesome!
Mercedes showed up to the Tokyo Motor Show not with a gigantic luxury yacht, not with a huge horsepower supercoupe, but with the Vision Tokyo hydrogen-powered autonomous minivan. And with no need for a driver, there’s no real need for seats as we know them.
Damn, Japan, you completely schooled us. There is no vehicle that us Americans have even dreamed of that is as forward in space-utilization as the Daihatsu Nori Ori concept unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show.
The Tokyo Motor Show is Toyota’s chance to show how much the company is betting on hydrogen, all the way up to their flagship American model, the Lexus LS. This Lexus LF-FC previews what a no-gasoline S-Class rival could look like.
Well, I’m not sure I’d call that unit a steering “wheel,” but Nissan does on their new autonomous driving concept, the IDS. If you’re going to ride around in a car that drives itself sometimes, I guess it had better be interesting, right?
Based off of the WRX STI, Subaru is producing 400 units of a limited-edition model they’re calling the S207, which is so good the company is claiming it the “world’s most enjoyable vehicle.” It looks as much!
While the world was drooling (or seething) over the Mazda RX-Vision Concept’s Tokyo Motor Show debut, Subaru dropped something much more pedestrian. Behold the next Impreza, in concept form. It is slightly more interesting-looking than the current Impreza!
After years of bad magazine rumors, false starts, hand-wringing and broken dreams, Mazda is finally—finally—back with a concept they say has an all-new rotary engine. Meet the Mazda RX-Vision Concept.
Kawasaki released this terrible, I mean amazing teaser video for their Grom competitor, the new Z125, and they’re gonna hit Honda where it hurts: in the clutch.
The Tokyo Motor Show is where you find the strangest concept cars anywhere on this planet, stretching the imagination of the Japanese auto industry and what a car can be.
The Tokyo Motor Show kicks off this week and all eyes are on Mazda, anticipating the sports car concept they’ve been teasing with a shadowy image for weeks now. And guess what? Despite our (completely justified) initial skepticism, the car will indeed have a rotary engine after all. Holy crap.
