The Sport Mobility Concept hints at the future of sports cars for the brand known for the Impreza and the BRZ. This EV has the driver seated low and at the center for maximum driving pleasure.

Meanwhile, the Air Mobility Concept appears to be a six-rotor flying electric vehicle. It might seem that Subaru has just recently jumped on the bandwagon of urban air mobility (UAM). But the company actually has deep roots in aerospace, starting out as an aircraft manufacturer known as Fuji Heavy Industries in 1953.

If you happen to be flying to Japan for the upcoming holidays, the Japan Mobility Show will be open to the public from October 27 to November 5.
