Mitsubishi is Pushing Its Anime-Inspired Design to the Extreme


By now, everyone recognizes Mitsubishi’s design as “anime-inspired.” Well, it looks like they’re taking things up at notch at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show with their new small plug-in hybrid SUV concept.

In what looks to be some sort of fans or boosters stuck to the roof, this new concept car looks fairly reminiscent of something straight out of Daimos, particularly the Tryper 75 S. For those not old enough then, perhaps you could think something along the lines of the cars in Super Sentai shows.

Currently, nothing is known what those four vents/fans/boosters actually do, but here’s hoping it does make it jump…preferably to the back of a moving Fuso truck.


Even the official press release has the following line:
“[It is] an electric SUV that delivers unparalleled driving pleasure and confidence over all terrain in light and wind.”
Please be a jumping car, Mitsubishi. It’s the least you can do for killing off the Evo and making the Eclipse into a crossover.

Anyhow, this out-of-the-world concept will have a “downsized, lower-weight plug-in hybrid EV drivetrain as well as an electric 4WD system...so that should make it exciting?

Let’s see how it looks like next month.
