Why do we love the Tokyo Motor Show so much? Because before we've had our first cup of green tea, Suzuki is explaining that the theme for its display this year is, "Waku Waku Switch for Everyone: Excitement for you, excitement for everyone."

New Toyota e-Racer concept is fun, self-driving two-seater

  New Toyota e-Racer concept is fun, self-driving two-seater Concept revealed at Tokyo points to the capacity for autonomous cars to cater to driving enthusiastsThe car was unveiled on stage by Toyota boss Akio Toyota, but no details - including technical or performance - were given about it beyond its name. As such, it is believed to be a concept in the truest sense, pointing merely to the fact that electric vehicles can be fun.

The Suzuki Waku Spo concept wears a retro-inspired body that most closely evokes the general shape of the late-1960s Suzuki Fronte (below). Rather than using fender/wing-mounted mirrors, this vehicle takes a more modern approach and puts rear-facing cameras there.

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 The cerulean blue box with the searing orange highlights looks like the result of a kei car mixed with an overlander.

In Suzuki-speak, that means five very different small concept cars—known as kei cars—ranging from off-road and customizable family vehicles, to a mobile breastfeeding station and a living room on wheels.

Waku Spo

This cool two-seater microcar is retro and customizable. The little A-segment car is a plug-in hybrid and is billed as a family vehicle that can be transformed to meet all tastes.

The body shape, face, and what is displayed on the dash can all be changed by flipping a switch. The version shown in Tokyo is a two-tone coupe with cameras for side mirrors.

Hanare

Hanare means "detached cottage" in Japanese. In the case of this kei van concept, it means self-driving living room, or a box on wheels that has a weird resemblance to a VW bus from the '60s. It has tiny windows and a wheelbase that's been stretched as wide as possible.

Suzuki debuts a duo of too-cute concepts at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show

  Suzuki debuts a duo of too-cute concepts at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show The world could use more cute cars -- and Suzuki delivers.According to Suzuki, the theme of its display this year is, "Waku Waku Switch for Everyone: Excitement for you, excitement for everyone." Confused yet? So are we.

Suzuki 's 100th birthday is coming up in 2020, and the company will be making a point of celebrating it at the Tokyo auto show later this month with a theme called " Waku Waku ," which Suzuki stopped selling cars and trucks in the U.S. market in 2012, and these concepts aren’t going to change that

Suzuki has unveiled the Waku SPO – a retro-styled plug-in hybrid concept featuring design elements that can be switched according to personal preference – at this year’s Tokyo motor show. The ultra-compact Waku SPO is joined on the Japanese firm’s stand by an autonomous ‘mobile room’ concept

It's pretty roomy for such a small vehicle, and there are plenty of opportunities to be creative with the space. Disco ball and karaoke anyone? After all, Suzuki introduces this as a vehicle that could bring new delight to owning a car without the aggravation of having to actually drive it.

Hustler (times two)

Suzuki shows not one, but two, concepts based on the Hustler kei four-door crossover. One looks more like a wagon and is introduced with a pair of promises: "With this car, I can have more fun" and "With this car, every day will be more exciting." Who can resist that?

The second is designed to be more of an off-roader. It uses decals, roof wraps, and a roof rack to up the fun factor. It's no Suzuki Jimny, but it's among the coolest concept cars of Tokyo Motor Show 2019.

Every Go-Everywhere Baby Room

This kei minivan offers privacy for breastfeeding, warm wipes, and a diaper changing bed in the cargo area—perfect for private feedings at public events. The concept was created with help from the Combi Corporation that makes baby products.
