Auto shows are always highly anticipated events for the unveiling of some of the most talked about and rumoured concept cars and it is Mitsubishi who are causing a stir ahead of the Tokyo Auto show as the Japanese manufacturer are set to unveil three concepts!
Autoblog had the news:
Even with new models like the 2014 Outlander and Mirage in its stable, Mitsubishi could sure use a little excitement injected into its lineup. Fortunately, it looks like a trio of concepts headed to the Tokyo Motor Show could finally help spark some enthusiasm for the troubled automaker.
All we have to go on right now is a pair of teaser images for the three concepts, but it does reveal a possible new design language for Mitsubishi. The Concept GC-PHEV (shown above) is a fullsize, plug-in utility vehicle, and it could very well be a harbinger of the Montero/Pajero replacement that we heard about earlier this year. Mitsubishi will also unveil a compact plug-in crossover called the Concept XR-PHEV designed to look like a “sport coupe” as well as the Concept AR compact MPV, which will utilize a small-displacement, turbocharged engine.
There is still no word on the next-gen Lancer, Galant or subcompact sedan mentioned in recent reports, but the announcement below does show promise for Mitsubishi’s lineup of plug-in cars.
How intriguing do these concepts look! Great job Mitsubishi, lets hope they live up to the hype.
