The Mitsubishi GC-PHEV concept has made its world debut at the Tokyo motor show.
The concept is a plug-in hybrid SUV, and uses Mitsubishi's electronic all-wheel drive system, named Super All-Wheel Control, to deliver what the company describes as "superior handling, stability as well as the all-terrain capability an SUV offers".
The concept also utilises both the latest driver safety systems, and also offers wi-fi driver support - making it what Mitsubishi describes as a 'connected vehicle'. The model could form the basis of a replacement for the current Shogun. The concept is powered by a 3.0-litre V6 engine coupled to a high-output electric motor and an 8-speed automatic gearbox.
Dimensions for the SUV are 4930mm in length, 1940mm wide and 1980mm high. The interior is dominated by a 'tactical table' - a cabin-length TV screen mounted on top of the central transmission tunnel. It displays occupants data, data from the car itself and maps. Mitsubishi says "It allows the creation of original maps and driving plans that occupants can share as they connect with the world."
