Mitsubishi Teases Three Tokyo Motor Show SUV Concepts

Mitsubishi is looking to revive its product range, debuting three new concept vehicles at the Tokyo Motor Show in late November.

The concepts, teased in a series of photos, preview a new range of people-movers from the brand, from a large SUV, to a compact crossover and finally a family-friendly MPV.

Up first is the Concept GC-PHEV, previewing a full size SUV with a plug-in hybrid system, designed to deliver efficiency and all-terrain capability. Mitsubishi says the SUV concept will also be a “connected car” and will showcase the brand’s next-gen preventative safety technology and driver technology through wireless connectivity.

A baby brother to the GC-PHEV is the Concept XR-PHEV, previewing a compact crossover with a lightweight plug-in hybrid system that will boast, “dramatically enhanced environmental performance” in a coupe-styled package.

Finally, there’s the Concept AR, which previews a new Multi-purpose Vehicle, combining SUV functionality and increased passenger space. Rather than a hybrid system it will make use of a small direct-injection turbocharged engine.

Look for more on all three concepts with the Tokyo Motor Show kicking-off November 20th.
