Tokyo Auto Salon Kuala Lumpur returns from Nov 8-10

KUALA LUMPUR: Tokyo Auto Salon Kuala Lumpur (TASKL) returns for a second year-running at the Malaysia International Trade & Exhibition Centre (MITEC) from Nov 8-10.

Tokyo Auto Salon Kuala Lumpur is currently the only show that is held outside of Japan under licence and modeled directly after the world famous annual Tokyo Auto Salon in Japan.

More than 91,000 car enthusiasts and visitors visited the Inaugural Tokyo Auto Salon Kuala Lumpur last year with show covering a total floor space of 130,000sq ft and included exhibitors, an auto styling competition, and a fleet of specially imported show-stopping cars from Japan and tier-1 tuners the likes of Top Secret, Spoon, HKS and Greddy among others.

This year’s show will present 170,000 sq ft of breathtaking displays.


TASKL is hosted in Malaysia by Element X Strategies as the Sole Official Licensee and MUSE Group Asia as the co-organiser, in collaboration with San Ei Corporation as the owner of the Tokyo Auto Salon intellectual property, and the Tokyo Auto Salon Federation.

Element X Strategies director and chief executive officer Jason Yap said this year’s Tokyo Auto Salon Kuala Lumpur is expected to be an even highly exciting, bigger and supercharged experience for visitors and exhibitors.

"Like the original show in Japan, a great deal of effort has gone into ensuring that the exhibits this year continue to supersede the expectations of fans," he said.

Meanwhile, MUSE Group Asia chief executive officer Riduwan Matni said Japanese tuners and exhibitors were also overwhelmed by the strong reception from Malaysian fans in 2023 that they would be back in a bigger way this year.


"With merchandises and selected components unexpectedly sold out on the very first day, they found themselves taking pre-orders.

"In some ways it was a good problem to have, but they have assured us that they will definitely be better prepared for Malaysia this year," said Riduwan.

Tickets are now available for purchase from with an attractive discount for early birds.

Early bird allocations are restricted to the first 5,000 purchasers or until July 31, whichever comes first.


Normal tickets are priced at RM50 per day for early birds, RM60 per day on event day, and RM120 for a 3-day pass to the show.

Tickets for children age between 6 and 12 years old are priced at RM25 per day (early bird), RM30 per day (event day) and RM60 for a 3-day pass.

TASKL 2024 is also introducing Express Lane tickets to beat the queue priced at RM70 per day for early birds and RM80 per day on event day.

Also available are VIP passes at RM150 per day which entitles the ticket holder complimentary access to a VIP lounge.

The Tokyo Auto Salon, which celebrated its 40th anniversary last year, is one of the top tier international shows for both enthusiasts and exhibitors.

It was first held in 1983 to celebrate the innovative and creative display of Japanese manufactured cars, also known as JDM cars (Japan Domestic Model), to later become a prestigious platform for vehicle manufacturers as well as aftermarket accessories and performance parts companies to showcase their latest products and technology.
