  Mitsubishi's little Super Height K-Wagon concept debuts in Tokyo, makes a big impression This taller-than-average little van concept is already running rings around our hearts.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.

CES 2020 saw more new cars and concept than ever before, and we don't see this trend slowing down anytime soon. Sony already has a number of partnerships with Japanese automakers, so it stands to reason the electronics giant could soon supply these connected car technologies, too.

A number of companies use CES to show off connected car services and new technologies, and be sure to check out a list of our favorites. But as for the brand-new cars and concepts -- from movie-inspired creations to freaking flying taxis -- these are the things that wowed us most at CES 2020.

Sony's Vision-S concept packs a number of new technologies

Sony Vision-S concept

No, Sony is not entering the car-building business -- at least, not anytime soon. But what better way for Sony to showcase its new connected car platform than to actually put it into a fully baked vehicle.

Lexus LF-30 Electrified concept debuts with in-wheel motors, in-trunk drone

  Lexus LF-30 Electrified concept debuts with in-wheel motors, in-trunk drone It's got edgy style, a fully electric powertrain and a little flying worker bot hidden in the back. This is Lexus' vision for the future.The concept is motivated by a quartet of electric motors, one housed within each wheel. Working in concert, they generate a peak 536 horsepower (400 kW) and 516 pound-feet of torque (700 Nm). That's enough thrust to motivate the 5,070-pound concept to 62 mph from a standstill in just 3.8 seconds. Not bad.

The modular pod system, called MetroSnap, is a swapping system for vehicle bodies that uses different vehicle bodies either for transporting packages

Called Vision-S, this concept packs a number of technologies that can be used in new electric vehicles. Some 33 sensors are embedded around the car, to detect people and other vehicles, and inside, Sony's 360 Reality Audio offers an incredible sound experience, complete with speakers built into the seats.

Sony already has a number of partnerships with Japanese automakers, so it stands to reason the electronics giant could soon supply these connected car technologies, too. Either way, Sony's Vision-S was one of the most surprising debuts at CES 2020, and one we'll be following up with for months (and years) to come.

Fisker Ocean waves hello and shows off its studly form

Fisker Ocean

Ol' Henrik Fisker is at it again, and this time, his upstart automaker is on the verge of launching an electric SUV at a very attractive price point. Officially debuting at CES this week, the new Ocean will go into production near the end of 2021, and its platform will go on to underpin two other new Fisker products.

Ram 1500 Rebel OTG Concept for SEMA Is an Epic Overland Rig

  Ram 1500 Rebel OTG Concept for SEMA Is an Epic Overland Rig The perfect truck to take you off-gridThe Ram 1500 Rebel OTG concept is a sort of mashup of Mopar and REI catalogs, paying homage to the special brand of off-roading pioneered in Australia. The OTG—for "off the grid"—is a Rebel-spec truck powered by a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 that drinks from a 33-gallon tank for long-distance travel. A high-end Dometic refrigerator/freezer in the bed is powered by rooftop solar panels via a separate 12-volt battery, and there's also a Dometic gas stove and sink in the OTG's bed that can be pulled out past the 60/40-split tailgate.

Best Debut : Nissan Turns Over a New Leaf. The biggest car debut – of a real car , or one that will be a real car – of CES was the Nissan Ariya. Sony shocked CES – that is, advance word didn’t leak out – with its Vision-S concept car that also had a width of the cockpit array of LCDs, including side mirror

The big news about the Ocean is Fisker's announcement of its starting price: $37,995 before federal tax incentives. Furthermore, Fisker says it only costs $250 to reserve one, and you can lease one for $379 per month. All of this makes the Ocean less expensive than a Tesla Model S .

There's still a lot we don't know about the Ocean, like how big its battery is and how far it'll go on a single charge. Fisker estimates an 80-kilowatt-hour battery should deliver a driving range of somewhere between 250 and 300 miles, but we'll believe it when we see it. 2020 just started, so the end of 2021 is still a long way away.

Hyundai partners up with Uber Elevate, debuts air taxi concept S-A1

Hyundai S-A1 Urban Air Mobility concept

Nothing says "the future" like flying cars. And though this isn't a textbook example of a flying car (it's not a car at all), this creation is important to the automotive space because of the two companies behind it: Hyundai and Uber .

Volkswagen to unveil a new EV concept Nov. 19 in Los Angeles

  Volkswagen to unveil a new EV concept Nov. 19 in Los Angeles It coincides with the L.A. Auto Show and kicks off a VW exhibit at the Petersen MuseumVW offers no details on the concept, which debuts at a private event Nov. 19 during the press days for the L.A. Auto Show, except to say that it will be one of four ID. concept vehicles highlighted in the Petersen exhibit. Volkswagen is teasing the “Building an Electric Future” exhibit with a rendering of the ID.Vizzion, the futuristic Level 5 autonomous electric concept it unveiled last year that features no steering wheel and no pedals and is supposed to arrive between 2020 and 2022.

CES can be a tough show to navigate, with so many intersecting themes and product categories all exhibiting in one place. The team here at Android Central took the meetings, roamed the halls and covered all of the news to find the best announcements at CES 2020 .

Hyundai is partnering with Uber to build flying taxis for the ride-hailing service, as part of the new Uber Elevate urban air travel service. This S-A1 aircraft can seat five people, including the pilot, and has four electrically driven props with a vertical orientation. Think of it as a giant quadcopter drone.

All of this is part of Hyundai and Uber's vision for air travel to get around and between congested cities, ideally connecting to a whole network of autonomous pods that can move people from place to place at ground level. It's definitely one of the more pie-in-the-sky (literally) debuts to come out of CES 2020, but hey, anything's possible, right?

Mercedes-Benz Vision AVTR is Pandora on four wheels

You'd be right to say this concept looks like something out of the movie Avatar. The 2009 James Cameron epic was the inspiration for this forward-thinking concept, which works to "merge" man and machine, as Mercedes-Benz says.

  The Platypus Toyota Avalon TRD Pro Concept Is a Racetrack Beast And it uses parts from five different Toyota modelsThe TRD Pro designation is held only by Toyota trucks and SUVs at the moment—Toyota builds TRD Pro versions of the Sequoia, Tundra, Tacoma, and 4Runner—but for the 2019 SEMA Show, the Japanese automaker is experimenting with what the TRD Pro line could mean for the cars in its lineup. Alongside a handful of impressive Supra builds, Toyota gave us an early look at its newest unlikely track monster: the Avalon TRD Pro concept.

Inside, the Vision AVTR can read your pulse and sense your breathing, and a huge display up front shows visions of the world outside. The four wheels light up and can pivot to make the car crab walk sideways, and the back hatch is covered in 33 "bionic flaps," which can move in different directions and house cameras inside.

Does the Vision AVTR preview a new production model? Absolutely not. But it does provide a look at how a vehicle could be designed for the far-out Avatar world. There's a lot more than meets the eye here, and we had a chance to talk to James Cameron himself to get the scoop on this crazy partnership.

Jeep's new 4xe models pack plug-in power

Jeep 4xe plug-in hybrids

Jeep will eventually offer electrified versions of all its vehicles, from mild-hybrid eTorque engines to full-on EVs. A new half step will launch later this year, called 4xe, which is Jeep-speak for a new, plug-in hybrid powertrain.

The Compass , Renegade and Wrangler will all get this new PHEV option, though we don't know anything more than that right now. In fact, we can't even say for sure if these three SUVs will all use the exact same 4xe system, or if the plug-in setup is scalable for different engine sizes.

Thankfully, we won't have to wait too long before Jeep officially spills the beans. The Wrangler 4xe is expected to debut with all its details at the Geneva Motor Show in March, with the Compass and Renegade following in April.
