Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) will point to its technology and design future when it reveals three new concept vehicles at the 43rd Tokyo Motor Show 2013 in November.
Mitsubishi’s concept cars will preview a new design language and highlight the company’s next-generation advanced technologies across themes of environmental responsibility, driving pleasure, off-road performance and safety, in line with the company’s @earth philosophy.
The first of the three concept vehicles is the MITSUBISHI Concept GC-PHEV Grand Cruiser, a next-generation full-size SUV that is likely to preview the new Mitsubishi Pajero that uses a high output PHEV (plug in hybrid electric vehicle) system. With genuine SUV off-road capability and sure-footed driving dynamics thanks to Mitsubishi Motor’s S-AWC (Super All Wheel Control) integrated vehicle dynamic control system, Concept GC-PHEV also features next-generation preventative safety features and driver support technology through mobile network connectivity.
Alongside the full-size SUV concept is the MITSUBISHI Concept XR-PHEV Cross Runner, a next-generation compact SUV featuring a lightweight and super-efficient PHEV system, agile driving dynamics and sport coupe-like styling.
Mitsubishi’s third show car – the Concept AR Active Runabout – is a next-generation compact MPV (multi-purpose vehicle) that combines the practicality and mobility of an SUV and occupant space of a traditional people mover. Powered by a fuel efficient small capacity direct-injection turbocharged engine, the MPV concept is designed with a cocoon-like interior and seating configuration that delivers superior comfort for all passengers.
