2013 Tokyo Motor Show - 6 Concept Cars That Forbes Thinks You Should Know About
Tokyo December 2, 2013; The AIADA newsletter reported that The Tokyo Motor Show is known for its wacky concept cars, but this year the wackiness is less pronounced than usual.
Many concepts skew more toward the practical than the fantastical. That's not to suggest disappointment.
According to Forbes, this year's concept cars are as creative as ever, with the Japanese automakers working on some jaw-dropping technology, including a motorized wheelchair that can be driven by thought. It's just that their imaginative ideas are not entirely out of the realm of possibility, as had often been the case at this biannual auto show in the past.
Or maybe it's a matter of skewed perception promising to deliver self-driving cars by 2020—perhaps what once might have come across as far-fetched seems more like far-seeing. Notably, the Japanese automakers were adamant in saying that some of the most futuristic concepts they shared in Tokyo are technologically sound and could someday be a reality.
