Suzuki Teases Wild Waku Spo Concept For Tokyo Motor Show Debut

  Suzuki Teases Wild Waku Spo Concept For Tokyo Motor Show Debut The autonomous Hanare concept is a living room on wheels. Suzuki teases a slate of concepts premiering at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show, including the retro-modern Waku Spo and ultra-boxy Hanare. Details are still scant about all of them, but the images suggest cool vehicles in tiny packages from the Japanese automaker. The event opens on October 23, so look for more details about these machines at that time.

Four concepts led by Waku Waku bring doubled names and novelties. When Suzuki showed off two of its concept reveals for the Tokyo Motor Show , one was a kei car called the Waku Spo. As far as we can tell with Internet translators, that renders the words "box" and "ish," which we'll resolve into

When Suzuki showed off two of its concept reveals for the Tokyo Motor Show, one was a kei car called the Waku Spo. As far as we can tell with Internet translators, that renders the words "box" and "ish," which we'll resolve into the entirely apt descriptive "boxy." Turns out when you double up on the waku, however, you get excitement, which could be how Daihatsu came to name one of its four Tokyo concepts, the Waku Waku. The cerulean blue box with the searing orange highlights looks like the result of a kei car mixed with an overlander. Black cladding hunkers over tiny wheels shod in aggressive rubber. The rear windows are replaced by full-length interior panels with a jerry can motif above and attachment points below. The back half of the roof opens onto an additional storage area, and the bumper triples as a step and a platform. What's not to like?

New Subaru Levorg teased ahead of Tokyo Motor Show

  New Subaru Levorg teased ahead of Tokyo Motor Show The wagon variant of the Subaru WRX will probably stay away from the U.S.Based on the teaser image and video, the new Levorg's styling will be evolutionary. The various creases along the side have a bit more curve to them to emphasize the bulging fenders. The lines also look similar to those of the Subaru Viziv Tourer concept shown at the Geneva Motor Show last year.

The Tokyo Motor Show is home ground for Japanese automakers, and Daihatsu is taking advantage to showcase four new concepts at the show ’ s latest running. These are the kei-class Waku Waku crossover, the Wai Wai six-seater, the Ico Ico autonomous vehicle and the Tsumu Tsumu small truck.

The Waku Waku concept appears to be quite close to a production model, and the fact that small crossovers are very popular nowadays should motivate Daihatsu to build it. At least one of the four concept vehicles Daihatsu is bringing to the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show will be produced.

Sticking with the two-up names throughout, next comes the Ico Ico, an autonomous shuttle with its own robot assistant named Nippote. At just 58 inches wide, the four seater's designed to navigate especially cramped urban centers. Slide doors, a retractable ramp, and modular seating that can be moved around the cabin make easier access for the disabled.

The Tsumu Tsumu is a kei-class goods carrier with a removable cargo box. The renderings show an industrial-strength drone that sits behind glass panels when not in use, and launches from the roof when operational. The artwork shows the foodservice box, the Tsumu Tsumu turned into a tiny food truck.

The Wai Wai minivan makes room for two more passengers than the Ico Ico, swallowing six people in three rows of two. Front doors open to nearly 90 degrees and rear sliding doors run to the back of the second row for better ingress and egress. Twin fabric sunroofs keep prevent a gloomy interior, and all of the seats fold down for when cargo instead of people needs hauling.

We don't know what powers the concepts and what other neato tricks they might hide, but we looking forward to finding out when the Tokyo Motor Show opens later this month.

2019 Tokyo Motor Show Hits, Misses, & Revelations .
Like Detroit and Frankfurt, Tokyo is losing its luster.Tokyo Big Sight has been split in half for the 2019 show, with Toyota and Subaru sharing space with big rig manufacturers at a site that's a 10-minute bus ride from the base venue. There's now an outdoor space featuring camper/outlander conversions and electric scooter rides next to the new building, which also has interactive booths for youth, including a nifty Tamiya table of toys and models for budding enthusiasts. But the bus ride connecting the two won't help draw crowds.
