TOKYO -- Starting next year, the Tokyo Motor Show will be held every two years and will include passenger cars, motorcycles and commercial vehicles. The 2007 show will be held Oct. 26-Nov. 11, with press preview days Oct. 24-25.
The all-inclusive format is a shift back to the way the show was held from its beginning in 1954 until 1999.
In 1999, the show's organizer, the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association, switched to an annual schedule. The show's content alternated: In odd-numbered years it featured cars and motorcycles, and in even-numbered years it was limited to commercial vehicles.
