8 Great Concept Cars From the Tokyo Motor Show

The Tokyo show always includes adventuresome technology demonstrations.

The biennial Tokyo Motor Show is always a source of impressive technological experiments, both in terms of the advanced new production models and the adventuresome concepts the Japanese automakers love to exhibit at their home auto show.

There are always oddities; Honda’s robots, Toyota’s rolling phone booth-looking contraptions, or even motorcycle-maker Yamaha’s previous forays into carbuilding with exciting sports cars. This year’s edition of the show was unsurprisingly highlighted by a variety of electric vehicles and autonomous vehicles. These are our eight favorites.
