Tokyo, June 3 (Jiji Press)–The Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association on Thursday decided to hold the next biennial Tokyo Motor Show in 2023 as scheduled.
This year’s Tokyo Motor Show, scheduled for October, was canceled for the first time due to the novel coronavirus crisis.
“I think the 2023 show will be the first major event in quite some time that will attract a lot of people,” JAMA Chairman Akio Toyoda, also chairman of Toyota Motor Corp., said at a press conference.
In line with the Japanese government’s goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2050, the theme of the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show will be green and digital technologies. The event is expected to send “a medium to long-term message,” Toyoda said.
Regarding the government’s decision to accelerate the installation of hydrogen stations for fuel cell vehicles to achieve a decarbonized society, Toyoda said that the operating rate would be very low if the state only targeted the many of these facilities.
