Mitsubishi Concept Plug-In Hybrid SUV Unveiled In Chicago

Mitsubishi has gone and unveiled yet another plug-in hybrid electric SUV — at the Chicago Auto Show yesterday. This follows several other plug-in hybrid SUVs that have been announced by major manufacturers, including Mitsubishi’s own Outlander Plug-in, which is selling very well in Europe and Japan but is continuously delayed for US buyers.

The new Mitsubishi Motors Concept GC-PHEV has a much stronger, bulkier look to it than the other models, though. Take a look at these two pics from Mitsubishi:

Of course, as a concept vehicle, who knows if this thing will ever get built, and if it does, who knows how closely the design and specs will match the final product, but for now, this is what Mitsubishi says about the Concept GC-PHEV (from an email sent to EV Obsession):

  • Features a powerful yet highly efficient supercharged V-6/electric motor plug-in hybrid
  • 335 horsepower
  • 8-speed automatic transmission full-time Super All-Wheel Control all-wheel drive
  • Tactical Table, an innovative information system making connected car technology an interactive experience available to everyone inside the vehicle. When the driver or one of the passengers places their smartphone atop the Tactical Table, they can create, collect, exchange and share information with others using the Concept GC-PHEV’s communication system.
  • Pedestrian Collision Mitigating Auto-braking, Rearward Blind Spot Vehicle Warning, Unintentional Vehicle Move Off Control, Driver Monitor

Looks cool. I’m not big into big SUVs, but a lot of people are, and I’m sure this could fit a useful niche. We’ll have to wait to see how serious Mitsubishi is about producing such a vehicle at scale.
