Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) is unveiling three concept vehicles at the 43rd Tokyo Motor Show 2013. The three concepts feature the carmaker’s new design identity that exudes the sense of security and functionality of a sports utility vehicle. The concepts also feature MMC's next-generation advanced technologies.
The first concept is the Mitsubishi Concept GC-PHEV, a next-generation full-size SUV that employs a high out-put PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle) system. The GC-PHEV combines the dynamic drivability of an SUV and class-leading environmental performance. It features the carmaker’s S-AWC (Super All Wheel Control) integrated vehicle dynamic control system that allows superior handling, stability and all-terrain capability of an SUV.
The GC-PHEV also features next-generation preventive safety technology and driver support technology via wireless connectivity. The second concept is the Mitsubishi Concept XR-PHEV, a next-generation compact SUV loaded with a lightweight and highly efficient PHEV system. The XR-PHEV features nimble drivability and a body style similar to that of a sport coupe.
The third concept is the Mitsubishi Concept AR, a next-generation compact multi-purpose vehicle that merges the mobility of an SUV and the passenger space of an MPV. The Concept AR offers a range of seat arrangements that provide comfort for all occupants. The Concept AR is powered by a down-sized direct-injection turbocharged engine. [source: Mitsubishi]
