  • Description

    Anti pollution services were the focal point of this year's Tokyo Motor Show rather than new models - such has been the effect of Japan's tough laws against pollution.

    Japanese motor sales to the United States and Europe are booming - one million exported to America this year - but Friday's (31 October) show was more like an apology for the country's motor industry than a showpiece. There were hardly any new models and every stand had its firm's anti pollution device prominently displayed.

    The most successful car this year has been the Honda Civic, sold almost entirely on its clean CVCC engine. Other firms have been trying to follow in Honda's footsteps using various anti-pollution catch phrases like NPAS "Nissan's Anti Pollution System"; Isuzu's "Clean Air System" and Mitsubishi's "Clean Air Economy".

    The irony of the show was that the thousands of visitors were obviously more interested in the petrol consuming, polluting sports cars, expensive top of the market foreign cars and noisy motorbikes.
