Mitsubishi's Tokyo Motor Show hybrid concept might be a roofless SUV

  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.

There's also the Super Height K-Wagon Concept that imagines a space-efficient, tiny van.

Mitsubishi arrives at this year's Tokyo Motor Show with the exciting looking Mi-Tech crossover concept and wonderfully named Super Height K-Wagon Concept van. For now, there are only teaser images for the pair, but the full debut is just a few weeks away at the Japanese automotive event.

Suzuki teases a slate of concepts premiering at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show, including the retro-modern Waku Spo and ultra-boxy Hanare. Details are still scant about all of them, but the images suggest cool vehicles in tiny packages from the Japanese automaker. The event opens on October 23, so look for more details about these machines at that time.

The Mitsubishi Mi-Tech Concept can look like a sporty roadster at first glance, but it's actually a tiny, open-roof crossover. The vehicle uses a plug-in hybrid powertrain with four electric motors, and a gas-fueled turbine produces electricity for the system. Mitsubishi's creative description for the machine is "an electric SUV that delivers unparalleled driving pleasure and confidence over all terrain in light and wind." The futuristic cabin projects information directly onto the windshield, and an autonomous driving system would be able to take over control when the person behind the wheel doesn't feel like doing the job.

If you're able to attend the Tokyo Motor Show, there's an opportunity to experience the Mi-Tech Concept in a virtual reality demonstration, including what it's like to be behind the wheel.

The Super Height K-Wagon Concept is Mitsubishi's idea for a future tiny van that fits into Japan's kei-vehicle segment. A machine has to be small to fit in this class, so the boxy shape maximizes the interior space within the limited footprint. This vehicle also has the company's Mi-Pilot driver assistance tech that can handle single-lane highway driving, forward collision mitigation, and mis-acceleration mitigation.

After an original debut at the Geneva Motor Show, the Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer Concept has its Japanese premiere in Tokyo. It's a three-row plug-in hybrid crossover that seems to point to the direction for future products from the Japanese brand.

Mitsubishi is beginning sales of the Dendo Drive House in Japan, and the company shows off the vehicle charging system at the Tokyo show. The offering bundles together an electric vehicle, charger, solar panels, and storage battery. The company also handles all of the installation and after-maintenance, too.

The turbine acts as a generator to charge the batteries that power four motors—one per wheel—for four-wheel-drive traction off-road when one wheel is spinning in the air.
