The Tokyo Motor Show has been cancelled for the first time ever. This is because of an increase in the number of coronavirus cases in Japan. The chairperson said: "The Tokyo Motor Show is being cancelled, not delayed. It's difficult to hold the event in a way in which many people will be able to experience the appeal of cars in a safe...environment." Tokyo has been put under a two-week state of emergency to try and reduce COVID-19 cases. Japan is worried about the pandemic because it will host the Tokyo Olympics in July. A lot of Japanese people want to cancel the Olympics.

The Tokyo Motor Show first took place in 1954. It is one of the world's top five motor shows. It attracts many motoring professionals and enthusiasts. The chairperson thought about holding an online show, but decided a physical one would be a better experience. The show is different from other auto shows because it focuses on innovation. There are many concept cars and fewer production cars in the show. We can get a look at what cars might look like in the future. The chairperson said the show works with many industries to see what the future of driving will be like.
