The Subaru Viziv Evolution concept has had its world debut at the Tokyo motor show.

The car is an updated form of the original Viziv concept seen at the Geneva motor show earlier this year, and is designed to demonstrate both the brand's direction in both design and technology.

Subaru says the new Viziv Evolution crossover is powered by a plug-in hybrid system comprising a 1.6-litre direct-injection turbo engine, coupled to a CVT, and three electric motors.

One electric motor would assist the front axle, while a pair of electric motors would drive the back axle. Energy would be stored in lithium-ion batteries.

Subaru states the concept will also feature a prototype “autopilot” system, which appears to allow semi-autonomous driving.
