Tokoya Motor Show 2013 opens to the publicBack

LexusRCcoupeThe Biennial Tokyo Motor Show opens its doors to the public tomorrow, with a preview night being held tonight at 5.30pm. Providing plenty of news and spectacle, the latest show promises to reveal new models from manufacturers, Lexus, Honda and Toyota.

The Tokyo Motor Show is going up against the LA Motor Show this year, but it is the Japanese that seem to have triumphed this year with unveilings from three of the most popular brands not to mention a handful of concept cars to include the popular Volkswagen Twin Up! concept car.

The highlight of the show comes from Lexus who are revealing the new Lexus RC coupe car which is a productionised version of the LF-CC concept car unveiled in Paris last year. This car offers the public something that is both small and affordable which isn’t too bad-looking either.

The model on show is the 350 model which is powered with a 3.5-litre V6 engine and is unlikely to be offered in the UK when the RC goes on sale in autumn 2014. Instead, it is likely we will be offered the new 2.0-litre turbo petrol model. There is also a petrol/electric hybrid model planned.

Honda has also unveiled the production version of its new Urban SUV known as the Vezel in Japan. It will be launched in Japan next month and in Europe in 2015. The European name will be revealed nearer to the launch time but will be known as the Honda Vezel in the domestic market when it goes on sale in Japan.

VWTwinUpFinally, the highly anticipated Volkswagen Twin Up concept was unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show which uses an 803cc turbodiesel engine in series with a 27kW electric motor and a seven-speed DSG gearbox to deliver a combined fuel consumption of 256.8mpg and only 27g/km of CO2 emissions.

Running on just electric power, the Volkswagen Twin Up can operate at speeds of up to 77mph and accelerates from 0-37mph in 8.8 seconds with a range of 31 miles depending on use. When combining the diesel and electric engines, it can accelerate from 0-62mph in 15.7 seconds with a top speed of 87mph.
