It may be called the Skydeck for show’s sake, but underneath the concept car makeover is Honda’s next Stream, the brand’s mid-sized MPV for Japan and formerly the European market.
The first FT-EV was based on the iQ, and now Toyota is previewing the production model due 2012.
Japan is the land that invented the boxcar, so it's entirely fitting that Daihatsu chose the 2009 Tokyo motor show to launch its latest and one of its tallest: the Deca Deca concept.
The Nissan Land Glider is the latest in a recent flurry of tandem-style concept cars that propose a one-plus-one seating arrangement - think Renault Twizy and VW L1 - where a single passenger sits behind the driver in a narrow-bodied and low-slung vehicle.
Created in Subaru's advanced design studio in Mitaka, this hybrid concept plays heavily on its Grand Touring aspirations and less on its eco credentials.
The EV -N is a sub three-meter fully electric four-seat city car intended as part of a future Zero Emission system incorporating the U3-X personal mobility device, EV Cub and EV Monpal.
Having made a name for eco with the Prius, now Toyota looks set to define ego with its new 2+2 coupe, the FT-86. And it looks superb.

Forget the awkward iMiEV Cargo van that ruins the purity of the original city car from which it has mutated, Mitsubishi's most important concept at the Tokyo motor show from a design and technology perspective was its new PX-MiEV plug-in hybrid crossover concept.
Small, affordable, and sportiness with heritage: the concept behind the CR-Z is unarguable and here moves one step closer to production. First shown in Tokyo two years ago, this year's model is much better resolved and largely what we'll see on the streets in Spring, aside from the front-clip, there for continuity rather than production.
