As thousands of members of the press decend on Tokyo ready for the 2011 Tokyo Auto Show to open on Wednesday, Green Car Reports brings you a preview of the electric and plug-in cars we're expecting to see at the show.

From tiny micro-commuter concepts to electric sports cars the line-up is particularly diverse, with each manufacturer covering several niches.

Honda

Honda's electric car range kicks off with the large AC-X concept, a plug-in hybrid vehicle with clear styling links to the hydrogen fuel cell FC-X Clarity. Like several of the Japanese makers, Honda is also downsizing with the Micro Commuter concept, a fully enclosed concept to rival the Renault Twizy. Like the Twizy, the Micro Commuter has four outboard wheels and a narrow, two-seat tandem body. Finally, Honda will be previewing the Small Sports EV concept. We don't know many details yet but it looks like being an electric interpretation of the much-missed S2000 sports car.

Mitsubishi

It won't all be electric city cars at Tokyo - Mitsubishi's PX-MiEV II is the company's vision of a plug-in hybrid SUV, perhaps as a future direction for the Outlander. In early testing the PX-MiEV II has managed the equivalent of 100 mpg when both electric range and gas mileage are taken into account, over triple that of a regular gasoline car in that class. Also on display at Tokyo is an all-electric version of the Japan-only MINICAB commercial vehicle.

  2. Apologies. I try not to paginate too much but it does help keep big blocks of text and a litter of images to a minimum with certain stories.
