2015 Tokyo motor show: what to expect

Has it really been just two years since the last Tokyo motor show? Officially, yes, given it’s a biennial affair - but you’d be forgiven for feeling as though it’s been a lifetime since the 2013 show. That show gave us some of the more out-there concepts in recent times, including Nissan’s BladeGlider and retro IDx cars, the Toyota FCV (which became the new Mirai) and Mitsubishi’s XR-PHEV, surely a look at the next ASX.

Mitsubishi eX concept revealed: electric SUV previews next-gen tech

If Mitsubishi was to launch an Evolution-badged SUV, as it’s reported to be considering, one could imagine it’d look a little like this, the eX concept. That’s not what the eX represents, however. Instead, and perhaps more importantly, this small new SUV represents a new generation of electric vehicles for Mitsubishi, succeeding the tiny i-MiEV hatch that appeared in 2009.
