It may be one of Japan’s smaller automakers, but Mitsubishi staked out a big presence at this year’s Tokyo Motor Show with a pair of new concepts vehicles, one focused on design, the other emphasizing its growing reliance on battery power.
Both the Concept XR and eX show cars are expected to find their way into production in the near future. And we’re likely also to see some of the new technology show up on a variety of future Mitsubishi products, including the self-parking and auto-charging system.
Both models pick up some cues from the current Mitsubishi line-up, rather than adopting the almost cartoon-like exteriors seen on some other recent show cars from the brand. But they also reveal where Mitsubishi plans to take its design language moving forward.
