Going on right now. Some interesting vehicles being shown and the focus is on EV technology.

https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/tokyo-motor-show/

The link will update regularly. One interesting note is Mitsubishi’s use of a gas turbine in their hybrid.

I as usual cringe with the push for Electric vehicles as to where will the electricity come from to charge the batteries? California has again proven the corruption of our power grids.

That Mitsubishi turbine hybrid would be a head turner in New Zealand or anywhere for that matter.

I hear ya. That’s one reason I think the hybrid solution is the optimal one for now until energy production and battery technology come together to be more sustainable. The range is the other key.
