New cars from the Tokyo Motor Show 2019

We had the Geneva Motor Show in March, Frankfurt Motor Show in September and most recently it was over to Japan for the Tokyo Motor Show. There were futuristic concepts in an electric city. But can the brands deliver what consumers are looking for now? Or are they all electric dreams?

Set to go on sale in late 2020/early 2021, the Toyota Mirai Concept has a Coupe-like design and would be sure to impress if it stopped alongside you in traffic. It presents itself as the brands 2nd venture with their hydrogen fuel cell. And one thing is for sure: they’ve definitely improved the design. This model has a larger hydrogen fuel tank, improved acceleration and a range which promises some of the highest miles of any zero-emission car.

Mazda MX-30

The Tokyo Motor Show marked a landmark event for the brand, as they introduced their first ever fully electric vehicle. Available in the UK from 2021, like many others, Mazda have chosen to introduce an electric SUV. According to their website, fully charged the MX-30 will offer 124 miles, which is considerably less than many competitors. But according to Mazda, all you’ll need to cover most day-to-day trips to work or school. This stylish SUV will also be available as a hybrid.

Lexus LF-30 Concept

The LF-30 was one of the more striking cars on display at the show. And showed Lexus’ take on what the cars we drive will look like by 2030. Sleek lines, front to rear windows, oh, and Gullwing doors? Yes please.

Mitsubishi MI-Tech Concept

Speaking of striking cars, there are few things more striking than a 2-seater, convertible SUV. Striking in a good way? You tell us. The MI-Tech is essentially a buggy built to thrive on all terrains, something you’d expect from Mitsubishi. However it gets interesting… the car is a plug-in hybrid designed to run on a variety of fuels such as diesel, kerosene and alcohol… although we’d recommend you didn’t attempt using several bottles of peach schnapps.

Nissan Ariya Concept

It comes from a brand known for its 4x4s, but can the Nissan Ariya beat the likes of the Jaguar I-Pace or the Mercedes-Benz EQC when it comes to style? Well, on first glance it certainly has the potential. And apparently we should use this car as an indicator of what the brands most popular models, the X-Trail and the Qashqai, will be looking like in the future. The Ariya also demonstrates Nissan's driver-assistance system, ProPilot 2.0, which allows driving in auto-pilot, but uses cameras to monitor if you’re paying attention.

Noteworthy vehicles also included the brand new Honda Jazz, Alpina B3 Saloon and the tiny retro hybrid that is the Suzuki Waku SPO.

If you can't wait for any of these vehicles to arrive, but are looking to lower your vehicle emissions, you can take a look at our range of low emission vehicles.
