Remember the Mitsubishi Eclipse, a sport compact car produced from 1989 until 2011? If so, then you’re most likely expecting a successor in one form or another. Automotive designers Advait Taware and Karan Adivi shows us what a modern all-electric version could look like. This modular concept consists of both a passenger capsule as well as a driver module, with the latter being able to be folded up and charged at home.

Unlike other rescue vehicles, the modular, fully autonomous MitsubishiI.RQ is powered by a fuel-cell drive, inspired by the current high-floored 4WD variation of the light-duty Canter truck. These technologies enable it to safely conduct rescue activities in difficult situations such as snowy or mountainous areas. Body pieces can quickly be swapped depending on scenario and purposes.

Mitsubishi Electric Bread Oven Most Expensive Toaster
Mitsubishi’s Bread Oven is touted as the world’s most expensive toaster, or least mass-produced model, and the device only cooks one piece of bread. How does it work? Well, the Bread Oven seals a single slice of bread inside a metal box and transfers heat through two plates at temperatures as high as 260° Celsius (500° Fahrenheit). Product page.

Priced at $80,923, the UK-exclusive Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X FQ-400 is touted as the “fastest and most extreme version of Mitsubishi’s motorsport derived machine.” It’s powered by an upgraded 2L inline-4 engine that produces an incredible 403hp @ 6500rpm and 387lb-ft torque @ 3500rpm.

To achieve the incredible 403bhp from just 2.0-litres Mitsubishi has had to significantly revise the FQ-400’s advanced powerplant. Motorsport specification high-flow fuel injectors are fitted to the aluminium cylinder head and a new hybrid turbocharger is also fitted.

The FQ400’s “turbocharged 2.0-liter 4B11 will put out approximately 405 hp and 400 lb.-ft. of torque thanks to a new turbo, retuned ECU and center-exit exhaust.” Limited to just 100-units, priced at $75,000. Click here for first picture in gallery.

In addition to six-pot calipers, upgraded brakes and 18-inch wheels, the FQ400 will feature a new aero kit that includes additional cooling intakes, vents, a larger air intake in the hood and ducts cut into the side skirts to aid rear brake cooling.

According to Edmunds, this car’s “twin-clutch transmission clicks off upshifts measured in milliseconds, so by the end of the quarter-mile, the Ralliart is really feeling its oats with a 14.8-second run at 94.6 mph.” Video after the break.

Power delivery is surprisingly solid throughout the rev range because the torque curve is so broad and flat, delivering nearly the maximum 253 pound-feet from about 2,500 rpm all the way to 4,500 rpm.

Laser TV

According to Mitsubishi, their laser TV sets will have a price point “more comparable to plasma and LCD than DLP”. They run at “120Hz, and boast 500 nits of brightness.” Video after the break. Click here for first picture in gallery.

LaserVue will debut in 65-inch and 73-inch, with the 65-inch version hitting the scene first. Mitsubishi is still pretty coy about what exactly makes the technology tick but is quick to point out the 200 percent color gamut that LaserVue provides, more than twice that of most traditional HDTVs.

Mitsubishi officially revels its Prototype S (Sportback). It boasts a “2.0L turbo four that delivers 240 PS (236 hp) and 343 Nm (253 lb-ft) of torque through a dual-clutch setup to a full-time AWD system with an active center differential.” Click here for first picture in gallery.

Up front, you essentially have the Lancer Ralliart’s nose, which is dressed up with more ornate, concept-style headlamps and foglights. Head around to the car’s rump, and you can almost see Mitsu’s people drawing a line in the sand, daring the 5-door WRX to come over and “play.”

Mitsubishi has revealed its revamped 2009 Eclipse and Eclipse Spyder. The Eclipse GT is powered by a 3.8L V6 that generates 265hp and 262 lb-ft of torque, mated to a six-speed manual or Sportronic 5-speed gearbox. Click here for first picture in gallery.

The Eclipse GT also adds standard stability control, HID headlamps and a large rear spoiler. All Eclipse models feature standard four-wheel disc brakes with ABS and electronic brakeforce distribution. The GT gets larger ventilated rear discs
