ubishi has two world premieres scheduled for next month's Detroit auto show:

  • A convertible version of the Eclipse sport coupe. To be built at Mitsubishi's plant in Normal, Ill., the Eclipse Spyder bows early in 2006 as a 2007 model.

  • A compact sport-hatchback concept called Concept-CT MIEV, with a hybrid-electric drivetrain.

    CT stands for Compact Technology, MIEV for Mitsubishi In-wheel motor Electric Vehicle.


    Playing catch-up a decade late, the world's auto giants now find that they have to lease or buy technology from Toyota.

    Spc. Jeffrey Hamme and Staff Sgt. Michelangelo Merksamer of HHC, 1/506th Infantry, point out features of the Hybrid Electric Humvee at the AUSA Annual Meeting earlier this month. The two Soldiers participated in a Military Utility Assessment of the prototype vehicle last month at Fort Campbell, Ky.
