The 2013 Tokyo Motor Show opens today. And because the Tokyo show is known for its plug-in vehicles, InsideEVs is there (or rather here).

"Land Of The Rising Sun" Auto Show Style

And when we say today, that could very well mean tomorrow for our North American readers due to the future tense of Japan Standard Time.

What can we tell you?  The future is a strange, scary place - and if you ever get here, it is filled with fancy concept cars, all the high tech gizmos you can stand...and an unnaturally high ratio of attractive models to pasty middle-aged men.  At least that is the case on "press days."

Over the next couple days there will be lots of breaking stories, vehicle reveals to report on (of cars both real and imagined), but for now (and with camera in hand), we give you a taste of the early morning action.
