Mitsubishi reveales the Concept XR-PHEV II for Geneva

Mitsubishi is back again with a new concept, which is called the XR-PHEV II and its set to debut in Geneva in the coming month.

It’s of the crossover type and looks like it could be a suitable replacement for the aging Outlander Sport, a compact crossover.

The new Concept XR-PHEV follows Mitsubishi’s previous concepts in terms of design theme, which is visible with the similar grille and frontal profile as other Mitsu concepts of previous years.

As usual, the Japanese brand still pitches the idea of hybrid powertrains with a new 163hp electric motor with a 12 kWh battery.

Check out the press release after the jump.

TOKYO — Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) will unveil the global debut of the Mitsubishi Concept XR-PHEV II[1] as well as the European premiere of the L200[2] pick-up truck at the 85th Geneva International Motor Show[3]. The Mitsubishi Concept XR-PHEV II is a small SUV powered by a new plug-in hybrid EV (PHEV) system and the all-new L200 is due to go on sale in Europe this summer.

The Mitsubishi Concept XR-PHEV II is a small SUV concept expected to be MMC’s second PHEV following the Outlander PHEV launched in the UK in April, 2014. The new PHEV system presented in the Mitsubishi Concept XR-PHEV II is a lightweight, compact and high-efficiency front-engine/front-drive system ideal for an urban crossover. The system is estimated to achieve very low CO2 emissions of below 40 g/km, among the lowest of any PHEV, while also delivering gutsy and smooth performance with excellent response with its 163PS electric motor. The concept model reflects MMC’s focus on electric vehicles in its approach to environmental technologies and is currently developing PHEV systems best suited to each model in its line-up with a view to introducing them in the near future.
