Auto Shows Revamped Honda Fit will take the stage at Tokyo Motor Show
Here's the production Honda E in all its glory
Finally, Honda has dished out the details on its cutesy electric hatchback.
The biannual Tokyo Motor Show will open its doors to the press in less than a month, and we've learned of another car that will make its world debut in the land of the rising sun.
Honda confirmed on Thursday that it will unveil the fourth-generation subcompact at the Japanese show. Of course, the details are fairly generic for now, with Honda simply saying the new Fit will will retain its spacious cabin and a versatile seating arrangement. A will also return with an even more compact two-motor system, though Honda has never sold the more frugal model on these shores. Perhaps that will change this time around.
Mitsubishi's Tokyo Motor Show hybrid concept might be a roofless SUV
The company says this SUV concept will use a plug-in hybrid powertrain 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.
It's also possible the fourth-generation Fit won't make it to the US at all. Sales of subcompact car have seen a sharp downturn in recent years as more Americans opt for more spacious crossovers and SUVs . The , for example, is larger and still relatively affordable compared to the average new car. Yet the Fit's current MSRP undercuts the crossover by around $4,000.
In addition to the new Fit, we'll also see the latest Super Cub motorcycle debut in Tokyo. Known as the "MiniMoto" line, the Super Cub rounds out other options within the portfolio such as the Monkey and the Grom. The Super Cub only just returned to the US last year to much applause from American Honda motorcyclist enthusiasts.
