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.

Sure, Mitsubishi's Mi-Tech concept SUV is cool and all, but it's the brand's tiny kei wagon that has us super excited, and yes, we're aware that makes us weirdos.

The Mitsubishi Super Height K-Wagon concept, which debuted on Tuesday at the Tokyo Motor Show, is a look forward to how people might want to use Japan's legendary little kei-class vehicles. Unlike many other kei cars, the Super Height is, well, super-tall and benefits from slightly better-than-average ground clearance. That allows the Super Height to go further than most kei cars could dream.

New Subaru Levorg teased ahead of Tokyo Motor Show

  New Subaru Levorg teased ahead of Tokyo Motor Show The wagon variant of the Subaru WRX will probably stay away from the U.S.Based on the teaser image and video, the new Levorg's styling will be evolutionary. The various creases along the side have a bit more curve to them to emphasize the bulging fenders. The lines also look similar to those of the Subaru Viziv Tourer concept shown at the Geneva Motor Show last year.

The concept also makes use of the Lexus Advanced Posture Control vehicle dynamics technology via its four independent electric motors to further customize and shape driving feel. • Mitsubishi ' s little Super Height K - Wagon concept debuts in Tokyo , makes a big impression .

The Mi-Tech concept is pretty innovative for Mitsubishi , and while it's very unlikely to ever see production, we do appreciate the direction in which the company seems to be headed. • Mitsubishi ' s little Super Height K - Wagon concept debuts in Tokyo , makes a big impression .

Little van, big mood.

One of the best parts of the Super Height K-Wagon concept is its weirdly chunky styling. It reminds us a bit of the epic little Mitsubishi Delica 4x4 wagon from the late 1980s and early 1990s, and we're guessing that's no coincidence.

The Super Height K-Wagon has typically odd kei car proportions, as outlined by the strict regulations that define the vehicle class. The fact that it's so narrow and tall means we wouldn't necessarily want to take it off-road on anything more aggressive than a fire road, and if someone suggested we try driving it on a banked oval, we'd slap them right in the face.

Inside the Super Height K-Wagon looks… well, like a regular Mitsubishi. It doesn't come off as a concept at all, which is kind of refreshing. We dig the brown fabric on the seats, as well as the brown synthetic leather on the steering wheel, the acres of very functional black plastic and the massive-for-a-kei-car screen in the center of the dash.

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.The Mitsubishi Mi-Tech Concept can look like a sporty roadster at first glance, but it's actually a tiny, open-roof crossover.

Mitsubishi has released more details and another teaser photo of its upcoming PHEV SUV concept – now called the MI-Tech – that is set to debut at this year’ s Tokyo Motor Show. Alongside the MI-Tech concept , the Japanese carmaker will also present another concept called Super Height K - Wagon

Under the Super Height's teensy little hood is a small but conventional internal-combustion engine, and it's mated to a CVT transmission. When it comes to kei cars, efficiency is the name of the game, and while we would love to believe it when Mitsubishi describes its performance as "brisk" in its press release, we ultimately just can't get there.

At the end of the day, this is one of those forbidden fruit concepts especially unique to Japan that we'd love to bring home and experience on US roads, but sadly, that's never meant to be.
