  1. This is so exciting. I hope we do not have to wait too long for these cars to come into production. I hope at least one of them is available as an EV. We need a hard top convertible by the way! Bring back an EV Eclipse Spyder model.

  2. Great to see an array of concept vehicles. However it would be nice to see a real PHEV SUV actually for sale in the US. 2013 then 2014 now we are looking at 2015 before the Outlander PHEV comes to the US. If sales continue to be strong in Japan and Europe one wonders if the Outlander PHEV will ever make it to the US.
