The Japan Mobility Show (formerly the Tokyo Motor Show) currently being held at the Tokyo International Exhibition Center will be open to the public from the 28th. At this exhibition, Japanese car companies showed a new attitude of accelerating development in the field of electric vehicles.
The Japanese government plans to realize that all new cars sold in the country will be electric vehicles by 2035, so various pure electric vehicles have become new products that various car companies are competing to display. There are many highlights among the exhibits of Japanese car companies, but many new models are still in the “concept” stage.
The “Nihon Keizai Shimbun” editorial pointed out that Japan started late in the field of pure electric vehicles, and it is difficult to say that Japan is leading the world in software fields such as artificial intelligence. Companies must make those next-generation technologies practical and catch up with the world’s leading pace in this field.
At the exhibition, Toyota Motor Corporation launched a number of concept models of next-generation pure electric vehicles, including SUVs, sports cars, minivans, and Lexus sedans. According to on-site staff, Toyota’s next-generation pure electric vehicles will use higher energy density lithium-ion batteries and have a driving range of up to 1,000 kilometers.
In Toyota’s pure electric vehicle development plan, 10 pure electric vehicles will be launched on the market by 2026, with a global annual sales target of 1.5 million vehicles, and 30 electric vehicles will be launched by 2030, with annual sales further increasing to 3.5 million vehicles. In order to accelerate the development of pure electric vehicles, Toyota is also developing several types of vehicle batteries.
In addition to exhibiting the FE electric formula racing car, Nissan Motor Company also launched 5 pure electric concept cars, including high-performance supercars, urban multi-purpose vehicles, multi-purpose vehicles, etc. Nissan announced in February this year that it will accelerate its electrification strategy and plans to launch 27 electric vehicles by 2030.
Honda Giken Industrial Co., Ltd. has more “electric shock” products, and one of the most popular exhibits is the electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) known as the “Flying Car”. Although people are used to calling it a “car”, in fact, eVTOL is closer to a helicopter in terms of appearance and function. This future mobile tool under development is expected to be widely used in various scenarios such as urban mobility, sightseeing, disaster rescue, first aid, and logistics.
In addition, other Japanese car companies are also trying to make a difference in the field of electric vehicles. Subaru showcased a concept model of a pure electric sports car. Suzuki, which is good at making small cars, exhibited a concept version of a pure electric light truck, which is both practical and simple and stylish.
