The 38th edition of the Canadian International Auto Show will feature the MINI Paceman Concept from the BMW Group, a Honda CR-Z Concept, Mitsubishi’s current incarnation of the i-MiEV, and a Hybrid Tourer from Subaru.
The MINI Paceman Concept had its North American premiere at the Detroit auto show. The brand is preparing to celebrate its 10th North American anniversary with the Canadian premiere of the MINI Paceman Concept at the Toronto show. The MINI Paceman Concept’s crossover design makes it the first Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) in the small car segment. The design takes the fundamental strengths of MINI – its uniqueness, go-kart handling, agility, dynamic capability and individual design – and gives them a fresh twist with the help of cutting-edge technology and an innovative body concept. It combines a sporty, masculine appearance, versatility and coupe looks with the dimensions of the four-door MINI Countryman. The MINI Paceman Concept could become another building block in the ongoing development of the brand and its product portfolio.
The Subaru Hybrid Tourer Concept Car Subaru’s announcement of a new gas/electric hybrid system based on Subaru’s boxer engine. The concept features unique gull-wing doors that emphasize its spacious interior. Powering the Hybrid Tourer is a 2.0-litre horizontally-opposed direct fuel-injection turbo gasoline engine that improves fuel efficiency and reduces emissions. The turbo is mated to Subaru’s Lineartronic (CVT). The powertrain features a unique gas/hybrid two-motor system with an electric power/drive motor in the front and another drive motor in the rear. The electric motors are powered by new high-performance lithium batteries.
