Mitsubishi is no stranger to electric vehicles, having shown the pioneering i-MiEV car in 2009 already.
The Japanese automaker has decided it wants to further expand its ‘electro-mobility engineering palette’ of pure electric EVs, hybrid electrics and plug-in hybrids. It has hinted at two concept cars that will premiere at the March show, including one of a hybrid bakkie.
Called the Concept GR-HEV, the concept builds on the Outlander PHEV that already uses an elective powertrain but applies this know-how to a one-tonner.
The concept also uses Mitsubishi’s full-time 4WD technology and a range of vehicle control systems to ensure high stability and traction under a variety of driving conditions. It emits CO2 emissions, Mitsubishi says, well below 149g/km.
More details to follow at its Geneva show debut.
