Mitsubishi is teasing three new concepts which will be fully revealed next month at the 43rd Tokyo Motor Show.

The trio will serve as a preview for the company's upcoming new design approach and next-gen technologies as part of the @earth philosophy. The first of the bunch is the GC-PHEV (Grand Cruiser) concept representing Mitsubishi's vision of a future full-size SUV powered by a plug-in hybrid electric system. It features the firm's Super All Wheel Control (S-AWC) and boasts new preventive safety systems and support for mobile network connectivity.

Up next is the XR-PHEV (Cross Runner) which is envisioned as a next-gen compact SUV equipped with a PHEV system and designed with coupe influences.

As for the Concept AR (Active Runabout), this will be a compact multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) promising to provide the mobility and practicality of an SUV but with the interior cabin room you would normally find in a people-carrier. Under the hood it has a small turbocharged direct-injection engine while the cabin gets a "cocoon-like" configuration which according to Mitsubishi will deliver superior comfort for all people inside.
