Mitsubishi set to unveil three concepts in TokyoTue, 08 Oct 2013
Mitsubishi is planning the world debut of three concept cars at the 43rd Tokyo Motor Show 2013.
The Mitsubishi Concept GC-PHEV is the first of three concepts and will be a full-size SUV powered by a PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle) system. The GC-PHEV will offer preventative safety technology and driver support technology in addition to wireless connectivity.
The XR-PHEV will be a compact SUV also making use of Mitsubishi's PHEV system. Mitsubishi claims it will feature body styling resembling a sport coupe.
The Mitsubishi concept AR will fall into the next-generation compact MPV (multipurpose vehicle) category. Mitsubishi defines the MPV as a vehicle that gives the driver both the mobility of an SUV and the cargo space of a small van. The AR concept will apply the latest fuel-efficiency technologies such as the use of a downsized direct-injection turbocharged engine. This concept also features a newly designed interior with a range of seating arrangements.
