Honda will exhibit both commercial and barrier-free vehicles at the Tokyo Motor Show 2004 — Commercial & Barrier-free Vehicles — sponsored by the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association from Tuesday, November 2 to Sunday, November 7, 2004, at Makuhari Messe in Chiba Prefecture, Japan.

Honda’s theme for this Motor Show is “Lively Motoring for Each and Every One of Us”. As a company which seeks to make mobility accessible to as many people as possible, Honda seeks to provide the pleasure of mobility in a society of people with dreams. Based upon Honda’s philosophy of “Respect for the Individual,” each person’s unique characteristics are considered. The commercial and barrier-free concept vehicles on display demonstrate Honda’s vision of some of the possibilities of mobility; the commercially available vehicles on display demonstrate the company’s determination to meet each customer's needs and to promote mobility for all.
