Mitsubishi’s three new concept cars are electrified, autonomous and connected

The car of the future is not only electrified, but autonomous and hyperconnected as well. Mitsubishi has incorporated all of these trends into three concept cars that it will unveil at this month’s Tokyo Motor Show.

Mitsubishi’s “e-Assist” active safety technology includes a danger detection system that activates safety functions. Its “connected car” technology has a failure/malfunction early-detection system that alerts the driver to seek repairs or maintenance.

The GC-PHEV (Grand Cruiser) concept is a full-size SUV with full-time 4WD. It’s based on a front-engine, rear-wheel drive layout, and has a 3.0 liter V6 supercharged MIVEC engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and an electric motor.

The XR-PHEV (Crossover Runner) concept is a compact SUV with a front-engine, front-wheel drive layout, and has a 1.1 liter direct-injection turbocharged MIVEC engine and an electric motor.

The AR (Active Runabout) concept, a compact multipurpose vehicle (MPV), also has the little 1.1-liter MIVEC, but with a mild hybrid system.
