Tokyo Auto Salon 2023 runs from January 13 to 15, and Nissan is now showcasing its vehicle lineup for show at the aftermarket-focused event. The company has quite a number of models to showcase from performance machines to commercial models.
The Nissan Fairlady Z Special Edition won the Grand Prix at the 2022 Tokyo International Custom Car Contest. It sported subtle upgrades such as a new front bumper that separates the front fascia into two sections by adding a bar in the middle. There is also a small gap in the lower fascia. The A-pillars, roof, mirror caps and side lines are black while the rest of the body is dark orange.
This dimly lit teaser shows the Roox Suite Concept. The existing Roox was a boxy van, but it looked much sleeker. Nissan says the model for the Tokyo Auto Salon has a more spacious cabin with a piano inside. It is “tailored to enable special time with loved ones,” according to the company.
Nissan equipped the Caravan commercial van with four portable power packs that come from Leaf batteries. It’s for professionals who need a lot of electricity away from the power grid. Solar panels on the roof keep them charged. The van also has equipment racks and a sterilizing air conditioning system.
Remember the boxy Nissan Cube? At the Tokyo Auto Salon, the company has a Refreshed and Retro Concept for that. Automakers buy used samples and restore vehicles. In addition, there are many bronze color customization sections.
This Nissan Serena received a body kit and alloy wheels that turned it into the Highway Star Concept. It has tweaks like a new front splitter, a flared grille, and an aluminum body wrap.
It’s also Serena, but gets an upgrade from Nissan’s Autech division. It sported a body kit, lowered suspension, and a set of 18-inch wheels.
The Autech division also has an X-Trail customized for the show. It rides on shiny 20-inch wheels. Inside, there are white leather seats.
The Nissan Z, which competes in the GT500 class of the Super GT series, uses sponsors from Motul and Autech. The brand will be showcasing the racer at the Tokyo Auto Salon.
Nismo gave the Nissan Note Aura a Formula E-inspired look. Apart from the aesthetic changes, there is no indication of any other changes to the vehicle.
Nissan will display the Sakura and Ariya in Kyoto, Japan, to promote the brand’s car-sharing service. At the Tokyo Auto Salon, they wear body wraps with a picture of Kyoto on the door.
