What sound will a Nissan EV make?

Electric cars may well be capable of driving in relative silence — save tyre noise — but that doesn’t mean regulators are going to let them. As a result, car-makers moving into the EV space must give them artificial ‘notes’ to warn pedestrians — potentially busy on their smartphones. That’s why Nissan, one of the world’s biggest EV producers, made a point of discussing a sound at today’s Tokyo motor show, before revealing the IMx concept car we were really there to see.

Isuzu FD-SI concept unveiled in Tokyo

The Isuzu FD-SI delivery van concept has been unveiled this week at the 2017 Tokyo motor show. Every Tokyo motor show features small boxy vehicles designed to maximise every inch of road space they use, and this year was no exception. The Isuzu FD-SI made its debut on the truck and ute specialist's stand and, while it's commendably narrow, it looks to considerably longer than permitted in the kei car class.

Nissan IMx concept: First look at Japanese Tesla Model X rival

This is the Nissan IMx concept, a fully autonomous electric crossover SUV that looks like an origami creation and has eye-based gesture control. It’s the star of the company’s stand at this year’s bustling Tokyo motor show. Under the wild concept design sits a new Renault-Nissan global skateboard-style EV platform that allows a completely flat floor inside, and positions battery weight low to improve the centre of gravity.

2018 Toyota JPN Taxi revealed

The production version of the Toyota JPN Taxi has been unveiled ahead of its in-the-flesh debut at the 2017 Tokyo motor show. Inspired by the original 2013 concept, the production JPN Taxi doesn't look much different to the revised 2015 preview. All three take their inspiration from London's famous black taxi cabs. As with the earlier concepts, the production car features a stepped roof, large windows, and a design that places space efficiency ahead of aesthetics.
