Mitsubishi concepts for Tokyo Motor Show revealed

Mitsubishi has revealed three world premiere concept cars ahead of Tokyo Motor Show debut on November 20.

These three concepts incorporate a new design that symbolises the functionality and reassuring safety inherent to SUVs, pointing to the direction Mitsubishi’s development and manufacturing will go in the near future.

First up is Concept GC-PHEV – a next-generation full-size SUV with full-time 4WD, combining a 3.0-litre V6 supercharged engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, with a high-output motor and a high-capacity battery.

The Concept XR-PHEV is a next-generation compact SUV combining a downsized 1.1-litre direct-injection turbocharged engine with a lightweight electric motor.

The third one is a Concept AR (Active Runabout) with a lightweight mild hybrid system which comprises a downsized 1.1-litre direct-injection turbocharged engine.

All three concepts feature e-Assist active safety technologies and the advanced “connected car” technology that utilises next-generation information systems.

Are these concepts attractive or not is a matter of taste, but the GC-PHEV has clearly left the designers board way too early.
