2013 Tokyo: Mitsubishi’s Concept AR shows off in Tokyo, providing a glimpse into a future model

Mitsubishi revealed a new line of concepts at Tokyo this year and this particular one is the Concept AR,  which seems to pitch the idea of a Kia Soul-like people mover.

It utilizes a mild hybrid system with a 1.1L direct-injected and turbocharged MIVEC inline-three. The Concept AR also uses a belt starter generator, a device described to “provide outstanding comfort from the get-go,” whatever that means.

The Concept AR also previews Mitsubishi’s plans of in-car technology and connectivity, coincidentally called Connected Car Technology. Though there was no specification about any future production plans for this concept.

For the press blast, check it out below.

Mitsubishi Concept AR

The comfort of a minivan and active personality of an SUV are merged at the highest levels in the Mitsubishi Concept AR. Its lightweight mild hybrid system merges a compact 1.1-liter inline 3-cylinder direct-injection turbocharged MIVEC engine and belt starter generator to provide outstanding driving comfort from the get-go. The compact body houses curved spaciousness. You can share it with your friends or enjoy it in quiet solitude. An all-new pleasurable relationship between humans and vehicles is made possible by the freedom of flexible space and innovative Connected Car technology.

Experience the reliability and satisfaction of driving the Mitsubishi Concept AR.

FREEDOM SPACE
The unpartitioned flexible interior provides a feeling of freedom and ample space for 6 occupants, or 4 occupants with luggage. You can even rotate all four seats to enjoy face-to-face fun. A wide open space gently surrounds occupants and provides refreshing comfort.

CONNECTED
Whether traveling alone or with others, Connected Car technology enables freer use of space. All 4 occupants can enjoy sitting face-to-face around the interface on the center console or connecting with the outside world via interface available at each seat through the slit. Connected Car technology creates a new method of communication.
