Tokyo Motor Show threw a lot of concepts, mostly giving a peak into the future of what out cars could be. We round up all the crazy concepts here.
1. Nissan IDS concept
Nissan IDS is a fully autonomous concept which is projected to have next generation of autonomous technology instead of the conveyor belt kind of concepts shown. The IDS learns and adapts the drivers style of driving the car through the highways, turns and turns and adapts itself so that the driver feels at home with the car and does not feel like losing control of the car.The interior of the car is futuristic in a sense that when in autonomous mode, the steering wheel is pushed back and out comes a tablet computer.
2. Mercedes Vision Tokyo concept
The company has envisioned a car for generation Z, i.e people born after 1995. The Vision Tokyo stretches 4803mm long, a generous 2100mm wide and 1600mm high and is a pollution free vehicle probably. Vision Tokyo’s exterior, including the large grille and individual spokes of its large 26in wheels, are illuminated in blue – a colour Mercedes-Benz suggests provides clues to its emissions-free, hydrogen-fuelled driveline.
3. Honda NSX concept
The Honda NSX features three electric motors and a twin-turbo V6 VTEC engine that can put out over 570 bhp.The supercar can zoom to a top speed of 305 km/hr and can go from standstill to 100 km/hr in 2.9 seconds flat. All that power is transmitted to the wheels through a 9-speed automatic transmission.
4. Lexus LF-FC concept
The new flagship of Lexus is a fuel cell powered car which ‘offer a peek into the design and technology direction of the brand’s future flagship sedan’. LF-FC concept is an autonomous car which is capable of ‘a safe and efficient driving experience for its occupants and supports the vision of a world without traffic accidents’.
5. Yamaha Motobot
Yamaha is building a robot that can defeat Valentino Rossi, one of the fastest riders in the world on bike. The ‘Motobot’ as called by Yamaha is being programmed to ride a stock Yamaha R1M at speeds of about 200 km/h. The company intends to apply the learnings from this project in real world scenario’s We say extremely cool bot !!!
