Nissan plans to offer "fully autonomous" cars in 2022, and will take responsibility for any incidents that occur on the road with them from this time onwards, as Volvo and a few other brands have committed to do.
The company discussed its plans for vehicle autonomy with media at its headquarter city of Yokohama this week, sharing findings from testing conducted in Tokyo, London and Silicon Valley dating back as early as 2013.
Nissan’s chief planning officer, Philipe Klein, has played a very straight bat when asked when — or if — a successor to the nine-year old 370Z halo sports car will be launched, meaning the next iteration seems years away in even the best-case scenario.
Subaru has unveiled the limited-edition WRX STI S208 at the Tokyo motor show.
The car follows in the footsteps of the S207 launched in 2015, with slew of performance and handling upgrades designed to take the standard WRX STI to another level.
Exterior changes are headlined by a mesh grille with red highlights at the front, sitting above an angry-looking splitter finished in gloss black.
Mazda has used the Tokyo motor show to unveil a preview of what will become the next-generation Mazda 3.
The brand has further evolved its 'Kodo' design language in the creation of the compact hatchback concept, which it says will herald a new generation of Mazda.
The next-generation Mazda 3 will be the first to feature the next-generation Skyactiv-X petrol engine, as well as the new Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture.

There are no other details about the car other than the reveal date, though a short video hints at autonomous driving systems, connected vehicle technology and electrification - all key pillars of Nissan's Intelligent Mobility philosophy.
