MITSUBISHI eX1 Concept is 100% electric-powered SUV that offers state-of-the-art technologies, AWD system and automated driving systems. The SUV is in one of the may electric concepts being shown, which are expected to be a reality by 2020.
3. Mazda supercar
Mazda shared the following statement about the conceptual coupe:
“The design of the sports car concept to be unveiled in Tokyo is modern but maintains a sense of lineage and authenticity, appearing almost to condense Mazda’s entire history of sports car development into a single model.”
