World premiere for 2 Mitsubishi concept models at Geneva International Motor Show

TOKYO —

Mitsubishi Motors Corp (MMC) will give the Mitsubishi Concept GR-HEV and Mitsubishi Concept CA-MiEV concept models their global debut at the 83rd Geneva International Motor Show which runs from March 5 through March 17. The two show models highlight MMC’s next-generation advanced technologies.

The GR-HEV is a concept for a sport utility truck (SUT) which delivers high environmental and driving performance using a FR 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 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.

    This is very exciting. Autonomy should be around 500km (in order to get real 300km using air conditioning and lights) or it would just stall too often. I still do not understand how the internal combustion engine has not evolved yet. It has basically used the same technology for the last 70 years!!!
