Mitsubishi will display two concept cars at the 2019 Tokyo motor show, and it has just teased details about both.
From the preview render, the MI-Tech seems to be a small, possibly kei class, topless SUV which can operate without doors.
The MI-Tech is powered by plug-in hybrid powertrain featuring an electric motor for each wheel and a gas turbine engine acting as a generator to recharge the car's battery pack.
According to Mitsubishi the Quad Motor with Dual Motor Active Yaw Control system is capable of delivering "optimum torque" to each wheel, and is said to enhance the car's off-roading capabilities.
Mitsubishi has yet to reveal how much power and torque the electric four-wheel drive system has at its disposal. We also don't know any details about the concept's battery and range.
The MI-Tech includes the company's MI-Pilot safety system, which displays warnings and information on the windscreen, and can take control of the steering and brakes in order to avoid or mitigate crashes.
Super Height K-Wagon
Diehard kei car aficionados may be excited about Mitsubishi's other home town show car. The Super Height K-Wagon, with its super-tall roof and sliding rear doors, previews the company's next-generation kei-class people mover.
Unlike others in its niche, the Super Height is said to have styling inspired by Mitsubishi's range of crossovers and off-road vehicles. From what we can see, it will have a heavily chromed Dynamic Shield grille, a floating roof design, and lightly flared and squared-off wheel arches.
