More reports, overviews and blogs will be published on CAR Online over the next 24 hours by our team in Tokyo. We’ve used a different page template for this article, owing to crashes at previous motor shows. This page is less likely to buckle under the weight of use, our techy types reckon.

Unfortunately a side effect of this is that you cannot leave comments here, but you’ll be able to post on all the other Tokyo content elsewhere on the site. Don’t forget to check out the gallery above – that’s where all our live show photography will be posted. Enjoy the show!
