World Premiere for Two Mitsubishi Concept Models at 2013 Geneva International
Motor Show 
Tokyo, Feb 13, 2013 - (JCN Newswire) -  Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC)
will give the MITSUBISHI Concept GR-HEV(1) and MITSUBISHI Concept CA-MiEV(2)
concept models their global debut at the 83rd Geneva International Motor Show
which runs from March 5 through March 17 (opening to the general public on
March 7). The two show models highlight MMC's next-generation advanced
The MITSUBISHI Concept GR-HEV is a concept for a sport utility truck (SUT)
which delivers high environmental and driving performance using a FR(3)
diesel-hybrid system (under development) in a pickup truck, one of the most
popular vehicle categories in emerging economies. Combining a high
fuel-efficiency clean diesel engine with a high-output motor and battery, the
hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) system achieves on-road CO2 emission levels of
below 149 g/km to give it environmental performance among the best in its
class. The concept also uses a next-generation 4WD system which incorporates
the Super Select 4WD honed in the Pajero series and Super All Wheel Control
(S-AWC) vehicle dynamics integrated control systems to deliver high stability
traction and driving performance under all road conditions. 
The MITSUBISHI Concept CA-MiEV gives an indication of the shape MMC, which
launched the i-MiEV - the world's first mass produced electric vehicle -
in 2009, believes EVs will take in the near future. This concept model
incorporates next-generation EV technologies under development at the company,
such as high-energy density batteries and high-efficiency EV systems (motor,
inverter, regenerative braking and wireless charging system). Together with a
lightweight and aerodynamic body it achieves a cruising range of 300 km. 
With its advanced technologies embodied in the two concept models making their
world debut at the Geneva Motor Show, MMC will continues to pursue further
progress both in emerging markets and in environmental technologies, two major
keys to the growth of the company's business.
