Tokyo Motor Show looking thin on the ground as manufacturers pull out

Tokyo Motor Show

Porsche and Maserati are the latest party poopers for the biennial Tokyo Motor Show, adding to BMW, Volkswagen, Volvo, Ford, GM, Chrysler and more. That’s 22 foreign brands that will be staying at home watching the telly as the world focuses its attention on the new releases of other manufacturers. Japan’s 14 domestic manufacturers will almost certainly have a strong presence, but who is left out of the foreign marques: Ferrari, Hyundai, Lotus and possibly Kia.

This will take the number of cars at the show down by around 50%.
