Tokyo Motor Show Unveils Environment-Friendly Vehicles

Steve Herman
November 5, 2004


An embattled Japanese truck maker has cut the number of models on display at the latest big auto show in Tokyo. VOA's Steve Herman reports from Tokyo.

Environmentally friendly technology, such as advanced diesel engines and low emission hybrid systems, highlighted the displays at the annual Tokyo Motor Show.

More than one hundred companies, including some from the United States and Europe, had vehicles and automotive products on display at the show.

Scandal-plagued Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus had only three vehicles on display this year, instead of its usual 10. The company has admitted concealing defects for years, including some that led to fatal accidents. Company President Wilfried Porth says despite the troubles, it is important to show that the truck maker is looking ahead.

"We still have a lot of homework to do in carrying out all the field fixes," said Mr. Porth. "This is what we do - as a priority, with sincerity, but, at the same time, we have to look into the future."
