Mitsubishi has given a sneak preview of three concepts which are scheduled to be unveiled at next month’s Tokyo Motor Show.
The MPV and SUV models showcase the Japanese manufacturer’s next-generation advanced technologies aimed at improving environmental responsibility, driving pleasure, toughness and safety.
The Concept GC-PHEV — which has the potential to be a replacement for the current Shogun — is Mitsubishi’s next generation full-size SUV that uses a plug-in hybrid electric system.
Mitsubishi says the concept (pictured) is also a “connected car” that offers next-generation preventive safety technology and driver support technology through wireless connectivity.
The second concept, the XR-PHEV, is a next-generation compact SUV plug-in hybrid with sports coupe body styling.
The trio is completed by the Concept AR, a compact MPV which is expected to replace the Grandis, which was discontinued in 2011.
The Concept AR will offer both the mobility of an SUV and the occupant space of an MPV. It will be powered by a down-sized direct-injection turbocharged engine.
