The automotive industry was once again hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2021 and sadly the biennial Tokyo Motor Show was canceled entirely. One thing the health crisis hasn't managed to slow down, however, is the ever-evolving trend towards implementing "CASE" (Connected, Autonomous driving, Sharing and Electrification) technology. In this special episode of SAMURAI WHEELS, we will take a look at what Japanese automakers have been up to over the past year, feature some of the best cars released in 2021, and look ahead to see what we can expect from them in the near future.
