Land of the rise in fun

The Cairns Post - - BUSINESS WEEK -

IRE­LAND Holden and HSV sales man­ager Jon Mau­rice (right) has just re­turned from the Tokyo Mo­tor Show. “This would have to be the most im­pres­sive show that I have ever seen with all the big Asian and Euro­pean man­u­fac­tur­ers be­ing present to show­case the lat­est re­leases but it was the con­cept ve­hi­cles which stole the show. Elec­tric ve­hi­cles are huge in Ja­pan and they all had some­thing to tease us with, Mit­subishi, Nis­san and Toy­ota had the big­gest dis­plays and their con­cept ve­hi­cles were im­pres­sive. Au­ton­o­mous Driv­ing is com­ing faster than I think we re­alise and the man­u­fac­tur­ers are all well ad­vanced in the de­vel­op­ment of th­ese new driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ences. The Mit­subishi Emi­rai and the E Evo­lu­tion as well as the Nis­san IMX were the highlights. Yamaha had a con­cept ute on dis­play which was also very im­pres­sive.”
