  • Description

    THE 13TH TOKYO MOTOR SHOW, SAID TO BE THE BIGGEST OF ITS KIND OUTSIDE EUROPE AND THE UNITED STATES, OPENED YESTERDAY (TUESDAY) AT THE HARUMI INTERNATIONAL TRADE CENTRE WITH 245 COMPANIES TAKING PART. THE SHOW OPENED AMID INDICATIONS OF INTENSIFYING COMPETITION AMONG JAPANESE CAR MAKERS FOR MARKETS BOTH AT HOME AND ABROAD.

    THIS YEAR'S TWO-WEEK SHOW IS EXPECTED TO ATTRACT ABOUT 1,500,000 VISITORS. DAIHATSU AND TOYO KOGYO, TWO OF THE COMPANIES EXHIBITING, HAVE ANNOUNCED PRICE CUTS RANGING FROM ABOUT GBP20 STERLING TO GBP50 STERLING AS A MEANS, IT'S BELIEVED, OF PREPARING FOR CUT-THROAT COMPETITION FROM TOYOTA'S NEW COROLLA 1100.

    TOYOTA, JAPAN'S LARGEST CAR MANUFACTURER, IS PUTTING THE COROLLA 1100 ON THE JAPANESE MARKET AT A PRICE OF ABOUT GBP400 STERLING. THE JAPANESE MANUFACTURERS PLAN TO EXPORT LARGE NUMBERS OF THEIR SMALL FAMILY CARS TO EUROPE NEXT YEAR, EXERTING FURTHER PRESSURE ON BRITAIN'S ALREADY HARD-PRESSED MOTOR INDUSTRY.

    OTHER CARS ON DISPLAY AT THE TOKYO MOTOR SHOW INCLUDE THE PROTOTYPE OF THE EIGHT-SEATER NISSAN PRINCE ROYAL, THE FIRST JAPANESE-MADE LIMOUSINE TO BE USED BY EMPEROR HIROHITO IN PLACE OF THE BRITISH ROLLS ROYCE. IN ALL 790 MOTOR VEHICLES ARE ON DISPLAY. OF THESE, SOME 270 ARE CARS MADE BY EIGHT JAPANESE COMPANIES.
