The 18th Tokyo Motor Show opened to the public

Friday 29th October 1971

The 18th Tokyo Motor Show opened to the public. The number of luxurious coupes increased compared with previous shows, and there was a drastic increase in model variations reflecting the “age of variety.” Most of the nine passenger carmakers offered a wide range of models. Differentiation was emphasised by symbols such as GT, GE, GF, GL, GS, GX, GSL, and GTO. JMIF organized a public demonstration of “CVS model,” a computer-controlled urban traffic system for the 1970s, comprising of monorails built over roads in the city, like a grid on which some tens of thousands of unmanned cars run automatically. Exhibited at the show were: 294 passenger cars, 219 motorcycles, 242 commercial vehicles.
