Mitsubishi Plan Three Brand New Concepts for Tokyo Auto Show (Photos)

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 LancerGalant 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.
