Honda Booth at the 2004 Tokyo Motor Show
 Date: November 10, 2004 01:18

While TOV/TOVA are not attending this year's Tokyo Motor Show, readers who are interested in what Honda has to display can find details at their worldwide website http://world.honda.com.

The TMS this year focuses on commercial vehicles and 'barrier-free' vehicles. By 'barrier-free', Honda means allowing everyone to enjoy their wonderful vehicles including the less-fortunate (physically disadvantaged) persons.

Of interest for this year is the 'Honda Fit Power Techmatic' which is a Honda Fit (Jazz) 1.5VTEC with CVT-7 but fitted with a 'power techmatic' lever which is a throttle/brake control lever similar to the throttle control found on airplanes. The throttle and brake pedals are covered by a special cover and the driver can control all aspects of the car using just the hands alone.

For those who are more 'adventurous' or able to read japanese, many more details are available on the official Honda (Japan) website :

http://www.honda.co.jp/auto

A movie of the Fit Power Techmatic in operation is available on their special TMS page. Unfortunately Honda seems fond of using liberal amounts of flash images to present information on their website which means that infor on those pages are not translateable by the usual internet language translation resources.
