Tokyo Motorshow 2013 – In its 43rd edition and still going strong!


Thanks to Honda Malaysia Sdn Bhd, Autofreaks is currently at the 43rd Tokyo Motorshow at Tokyo Big Sight in Koto Ward. This bi-annual event organized by JAMA or the Japan Automobile manufacturers Association Inc. AF was at the exclusive Press Day today, and here are some photos hot off the Honda show floor at Tokyo Big Sight. Stay tuned for more reports coming soon!


Its theme for this year is “Living outside the Box” and Honda started off its display booth at TMS in fine style with the Sports 360, perhaps in homage to the all-new S660 AWD 2-seater concept (below)


But of course the star of the Honda stand was the new NSX (main image above and below). This much-anticipated supercar will feature a hybrid powertrain mated to a Super AWD system, an electric motor for each wheel, dual-clutch transmission and a powerful electric motor coupled to a mid-mounted V6 engine.


Also taking centre stage was the all-new Honda Vezel Crossover (below). an amalgamation of an SUV and MPV, the Vezel is classified as a CUV, or Crossover Utility Vehicle, and will come with a choice of two powertrains, a regular petrol engine and a hybrid. Honda plans to launch the Vezel in Japan soon, followed by a global launch thereafter.


Also on display was the new Fit (below) or Jazz as it’s known back home, and yes, it looks very decent. Sportiness seems to have been the styling element during the design stage.


Fans of Honda’s two-wheel division were absolutely drooling over this new Muscle Bike called the F6C (below). It uses a 1800cc engine taken from the Honda Goldwing, and looks absolutely brutal.


Stay tuned for more from TMS 2013! – AF.
