Mitsubishi Brings You Back to the Future Part II

You may have read our blog on how Mitsubishi plans to bring you back to the future with the XR-PHEV concept car, but that’s not the only futuristic car Mitsubishi has up their sleeve. In addition to the XR-PHEV, Mitsubishi plans on adding two more concept cars to their line up; the GC-PHEV and the AR.

The GC-PHEV is a plug-in hybrid electric SUV that packs a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine and a high-output electric motor that delivers full-time four-wheel drive. It’s also the starting point for the very latest safety technologies from Mitsubishi, like vehicle-to-vehicle communication and an early detection system for engine component failure

The AR is described as a “next-generation Multi-Purpose Vehicle”, the Mitsubishi Concept AR uses the same 1.1-liter engine as the XR-PHEV and hybrid driving system. With van-like styling, this concept can seat up to six people and packs tons of technologies including a touch screen in the steering wheel! The second row of seats can be rotated to face the rear, ideal for road trips!

Mitsubishi Brings You Back to the Future

Last month, the Mitsubishi Concept XR-PHEV made its North American debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show. It is a two-door compact crossover equipped with a 295 HP (combined) powertrain that can take it 53 miles on electricity alone, or further with the assistance of the 3-cylinder, 134 BHP gas engine.

With its futuristic design, the crossover’s debut made a bold statement that Mitsubishi is here to stay in the US. Check out the photo gallery below and let us know what you think. Would you drive this concept PHEV? Do you like the design aesthetic Mitsubishi has captured?
