I saw an electric truck at TMS, the eCanter (http://www.mitsubishi-fuso.com/content/ ... index.html) from Fuso, which despite the Mitsubishi logo, is part of Daimler (http://www.mitsubishi-fuso.com/content/ ... index.html). Per the rep I spoke to, Fuso was spun off from Mitsubishi.
The truck had both CHAdeMO and J1772 inlets.
I also saw the https://www.greencarreports.com/news/11 ... motor-show concept which https://www.greencarreports.com/news/11 ... s-car-news called the "chill van".
I saw JPN Taxi at Toyota's booth today: http://newsroom.toyota.co.jp/en/detail/19173376. It's an LPG hybrid. I wonder if they'll start to become popular over the years, displacing cars w/old-looking designs like the Crown Comfort. I noticed they put the hazard light button on the steering wheel. I guess Japanese cabbies use it a lot. There were also at 2 USB ports on the back of the driver's seat for charging devices. I forgot to check if there were more in the car for passengers.
I'm done w/Tokyo Motor Show this year. There was definitely less focus on hydrogen FCEVs this time than last time in 2015 (which wasn't that significant either). I felt like I had a ton of free time on day 2 to see stuff at my leisure. I misjudged the time a bit. I thought that there would be a ton to see at the west halls, almost equally as much as the east halls (which I spent all of day 1 in). I was way off. There was way less to see in the west halls.
For folks who aren't that much into cars, subsystems, or tools, nor taking pics of booth babes, if TMS 2019 is of similar size, a full day is probably more than enough.
I also noticed today that the show floor had gotten pretty empty by 7 pm. I guess folks were hungry and left. During the day, it can get real crowded.
Unrelated: Google Maps on iOS was awesome for taking the bus in Tokyo. I'd previously used it for train and subway directions in Japan in 2015 while renting a wi-fi hotspot. In the past, travel books (e.g. Frommer's Japan) said for Tokyo to not bother taking the bus saying it was complicated and it's all in Japanese. Well, the physical bus stops do list the direction in English (e.g. to Monzen-nakacho or Tokyo Big Sight) and the electronic signage and announcements onboard do have English. Google Maps would tell me to take say bus 19 towards Tokyo Big Sight from a given spot. Unfortunately, sometimes the marker wasn't in the right spot so I had to ask for directions.
It only cost me under 210 yen (under $1.85 USD) to get from a bus stop near my hotel to Tokyo Big Sight, where TMS was held. Taking trains and/or subway would've cost at least double. For reference, UberBlack fare estimate is 3,033 to 4,006 yen (about $26.60 USD to $35.17). Tokyo taxis are notoriously expensive so they'd likely be even more.
