The biennial Tokyo Motor Show is consistently home to some of the most out-there concept cars, and this year's show should be no different. Mitsubishi  released the first teaser of its unnamed concept on Wednesday, and even though we can't see the whole thing, it looks like it might be wild.

Mitsubishi says the concept will be a small SUV with a plug-in hybrid drivetrain and an electric four-wheel-drive system. The PHEV setup is described as being low-weight, but no other details were given. Mitsubishi was one of the first manufacturers to offer a plug-in-hybrid SUV for sale -- the Outlander PHEV -- and this concept could preview a new hybrid setup for future production crossovers.

While the shadowy image only shows the top half of the rear of the car, we can see a number of intriguing details. The surfacing is sharp, the trunk lid is short, and part of the taillight is visible above the rear bumper. In lieu of a rear hatch, there are two massive fairings made of carbon fiber that each contain what look like two large fans or heat extractors. In between on the flat deck is a glass panel that seems to reveal an electric motor.

But the best part comes ahead of those fairings. Instead of the fairings flowing into a roof, it looks like the bodywork drops straight down to the beltline, making us think this concept is going to be a convertible. Mitsubishi says the SUV will deliver driving pleasure over "all terrain in light and wind," another hint that the concept will be some sort of convertible. Given the concept's small size, it might even be a two-door with only two seats.

Lexus EV Concept Teased Ahead Of Tokyo Motor Show Debut .
Lexus isn't willing to show much for now, but the wait is nearly over. A two-second teaser video and a succinct two-sentence press release is all we’re getting from Lexus at this point in regards to the company’s upcoming electric concept. Toyota’s luxury division says the new zero-emissions showcar is a window into the company’s electric and autonomous future, so not only will the vehicle lack a combustion engine, but it also might not have a steering wheel.It is believed the electric concept will take after the LF-SA from 2015, therefore we’re expecting a small hatchback developed mainly for city use.
