Like the previous show, the 43rd Tokyo Motor Show will be a comprehensive show that includes passenger cars, commercial vehicles, motorcycles, Carrozzeria, vehicle bodies, parts, machinery & tools, and automobile-related services.

Tokyo Motor Show moved back to Tokyo for the first time in 24 years with the previous 2011 show. With a turnout of all 14 manufacturers/15 brands from Japan and 21 manufacturers /25 brands from abroad, as well as 53 world premieres, the show was befitting to its international status. The organizer themed project, "SMART MOBILITY CITY 2011" also successfully showcased cutting-edge technology that links to automobiles, cities, and lifestyles. As a result, the total number of visitors came to 842,600, which was an increase of 37% over the previous show. This also exceeded the 40th Show in 2007 in terms of average visitors per day.

As done in the previous show, the 43rd Tokyo Motor Show will keep aiming to establish its presence as the top technology motor show in the world with exhibits that epitomize Japan as a technological powerhouse.

The call for exhibitors is scheduled to start in mid-October 2012 and end in early February 2013.
