Tokyo 2013 – Mitsubishi Concept XR-PHEV

Mitsubishi Concept GC-PHEV 05

Moving on and we arrive at the Concept XR-PHEV, which is Mitsubishi’s compact SUV concept that uses the FF-layout PHEV powertrain, which also powered the Outlander PHEV – the story for that will be out soon. The SUV measures 4,360 mm in length, 1,870 mm in width and 1,570 mm in height.

The exciting design is juxtaposed by a surprisingly small 1.1-litre 3-cylinder turbocharged MIVEC engine that produces 100 PS assisted by a lightweight motor that outputs 120 kW from a 14.0 kWh battery.

Like the GC-PHEV, the XR-PHEV too can power up camping equipment, your rice cooker and can go on for 10 days on a full battery.

Its interior is just as sporty as its shell. To accentuate that fact, the entire cockpit is skewed to the driver and the bucket-type driver’s seat provides firm location and support. The driver also gets a different coloured seat compared to the other three.

      LOL. Underpowered engine match with huge body. Unless they use Ford Ecoboost 1.0 which produce 123-hp , this SUV not worth it to buy!
