Mitsubishi Lineup for the Tokyo Motor Show

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) will unveil three world premiere concept cars at the 43rd Tokyo Motor Show 2013 on Nov. 20.

The three concepts take MMC’s @earth Technology as their theme and point to the direction its development and manufacturing will take in the near future.

The Mitsubishi Concept GC–PHEV is a next-generation full-size SUV with full-time 4WD. It is based on a front engine, rear-wheel drive layout plug-in hybrid EV (PHEV) system.

The Mitsubishi Concept XR-PHEV is a next-generation compact SUV. These two concepts feature PHEV systems optimally tailored to different market and segment requirements.

The Mitsubishi Concept AR is a next-generation compact MPV which combines SUV maneuverability with MPV roominess. It uses a lightweight mild hybrid system which includes a downsized 1.1-liter direct-injection turbocharged MIVEC engine.

Including the three concept models, MMC will be displaying a total of 17 models at its booth at the 43rd Tokyo Motor Show 2013.
