A fantastic and large auto show was held in the Japan’s capital, Tokyo.
The show opens to the public from Friday, running till Nov 4 at Tokyo Big Sight, with more than 180 companies and organizations showcasing products and services.
Electric vehicles and cars designed for short trips are in the spotlight at the Tokyo Motor Show.
The auto show has several models ranging from street cars to luxury and sports cars.
Carmakers are turning to new ways to market to consumers such as social media while they continue to invest aggressively in research and development to keep up with evolving mobility trends.
While connectivity, autonomous driving, car-sharing and electric powertrains continue to be the major trends across the industry, battery-powered cars designed for short trips are being showcased by Japanese manufacturers.
A large number of women and children attended the show to witness the luxurious car models.
Moreover, Toyota Motor Corp is featuring an ultra-compact electric two-seater car mainly targeted at elderly drivers and an indoor mobility device in which the user is transported in a standing position, both expected to go on sale in late 2020.
Toyota also brought to the show an updated Mirai, which in 2014 became the world’s first mass-produced fuel cell car, touting a 30 percent increase in its driving range.
