Mitsubishi Motors worldwide design studios, including our facility in Cypress, California, created some of these far-reaching concepts. Customizing shops that find Mitsubishi designs to be excellent platforms for tuning and specializing also developed some of the exciting models on display here.
A beacon for this renewed ambition will be the world premiere of an all-new flagship concept car, the MITSUBISHI e-EVOLUTION CONCEPT.
In its overall design, the MITSUBISHI GT-PHEV Concept projects the image of a “ground tourer” – a car made for cruising across a vast land – expressing Functional Beauty, Augmented Possibility, Sculptured Dynamism, Japanese Craftsmanship.

The next-generation EV system employs a high-capacity and high-performance battery together with compact high-output electric motors making it lighter and more efficient. With further weight reductions in the vehicle itself, it can provide a cruising range of 400 km or approx. 248 miles.
Other features include the application of automated driving technology which combines connected car technology, utilizing next-generation information systems, and advanced active safety technology. When it detects danger it quickly and precisely utilizes its safety features and is also equipped with functions which detect malfunctions or abnormalities early and advises the driver to take the vehicle in for repair or servicing.

From the C-pillar forward, the Mitsubishi Concept GR-HEV's sweeping exterior design looks like a handsome, aerodynamically-efficient next-generation crossover/SUV. Aft of the rear passenger compartment, the body morphs into a supplely-contoured yet highly-functional pickup truck.
Aesthetically appealing design elements including aluminum front air dams, LED headlights and LED rear combination taillights are both functional and luxurious, allowing this concept car to feel right at home whether it is being used for work at the construction site or for an opulently indulgent night on the town.
"Here's how it works: At slow and moderate speeds (for example, a morning commute in the city), the Mitsubishi Plug-in Hybrid System operates in all-electric EV Mode. Here the Concept PX-MiEV becomes a front-wheel-drive vehicle, powered by its battery pack and the front electric motor. In short, it offers fun-to-drive power with zero tailpipe emissions. Furthermore, the Concept PX-MiEV monitors road conditions and adapts to them. So if it's raining, or if the road is slick with snow, electric power is automatically provided to the rear motor, supplementing the front-wheel-drive operation and effectively turning the car into an electric four-wheel-drive vehicle."
The Mitsubishi Concept CA-MiEV's supple yet vigorous exterior design races towards the future, expressing the advanced next-generation EV technologies embedded beneath its eye-catching sheet-metal.
Its headlight and rear taillight designs are based on the faceted shape of cut diamonds, creating a deep and sophisticated design aesthetic. This facet-cut theme is carried over to the design of this concept car's wheels as well.
Advanced safety technologies including Lane Departure Warning (LD W), Active Cruise Control (ACC) and Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM) have also been incorporated into this handsome futuristic EV, along with convenient features like remote-controlled air-conditioning and battery recharging.
