Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Tokyo Auto Salon 16-01

At the 2016 Tokyo Auto Salon, to be held next week, Mitsubishi has announced its line-up of themed vehicles, set to take the stage. A pair of Mitsubishi Outlander PHEVs and another pair of Delica D:5 concepts will be dressed up, specifically for the outdoors.

The first pairing, which consists of the Outlander PHEV and Delica, is called the Outdoor Gear Concept. Both are dressed pretty similarly in terms of the graphics that they wear. The duo gets a pearl white matte body colour and orange wing mirrors.

On the Delica, more orange has been applied to its sides, fog lamp surround and 16-inch alloy rims (wrapped in all-season tyres). A rugged front bumper is also present, while a roof rack is attached to the top. The Outlander gets the same treatment, however, it sits on larger 20-inch aluminium wheels and gets a bike attached to its rack.

As for the second pair, the SUV and MPV here are called the Active Camper Concept. Both the Outlander and the Delica are painted in a matte silver colour. The SUV gets a large “PHEV” decal on its side, while the MPV gets snow camo stickers round its windows. Up top, the Outlander is fitted with a roof box, while the Delica, a simple roof rack. Both sit on differently designed 20-inch rims.

If they don’t look all that flashy enough to be labelled as concepts, well, bear in mind that the Tokyo Auto Salon is all about customised cars. That said, do you think the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV and the off-road Delica MPV is “custom” enough? Share with us your thoughts below.
