Mitsubishi showed up at the recent 2013 Geneva Motor Show to introduce their new GR-HEV concept, described as a the first one-tonne pickup truck to feature Mitsubishi Motors’ own take at hybrid-electric technology, the HEV. This pretty futuristic prototype shows some lines that will characterize the upcoming production of the Japanese brand, especially as far as front grille and side-view are concerned.
This conceptual Sport Utility HEV Truck was developed with an ambitious target for CO2 emissions below 149 g/km - that would make it far better than the segment average - and uses Mitsubishi’s well-known full-time 4WD technology, featuring Super All Wheel Control (S-AWC) integrated vehicle dynamics control system driveline to deliver high stability traction and driving performance under all road conditions.
The Mitsubishi GR-Hev concept showcased in Geneva measures 5.42 meters in length, 1.78 meters in height and 1.93 meters in width, with a pretty abundant wheel-base fo about 3 meters. The Japanese manufacturer has not revealed any other official data as the car is still a mere prototype. If the Mitsubishi GR-Hev will eventually make it into production in sorm form, they will let us know.
