Mitsubishi Motors to unveil two concept models at 2013 Geneva International Motor Show
Mitsubishi Motors will give the Mitsubishi I Concept GR-HEV and Mitsubishi Concept CA-MiEV concept models their global debut at the 83rd Geneva International Motor Show. The Mitsubishi Concept GR-HEV is a concept for a sport utility truck (SUT) which delivers high environmental and driving performance using a FR diesel-hybrid system (under development) in a pickup truck, one of the most popular vehicle categories in emerging economies. Combining a high fuel-efficiency clean diesel engine with a high-output motor and battery, the hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) system achieves on-road CO2 emission levels of below 149 g/km to give it environmental performance among the best in its class.
The Mitsubishi Concept CA-MiEV gives an indication of the shape MMC, which launched the i-MiEV -the world’s first mass produced electric vehicle – in 2009, believes EVs will take in the near future. This concept model incorporates next-generation EV technologies under development at the company, such as high-energy density batteries and high-efficiency EV systems (motor, inverter, regenerative braking and wireless charging system). Together with a lightweight and aerodynamic body it achieves a cruising range of 300 km.
