Following a teaser released in October, Mitsubishi has revealed its trio of concepts scheduled to make an appearance later this month at Tokyo Motor Show.

First up it's the rather unattractive GC-PHEV (Grand Cruiser) representing Mitsubishi's vision of a next-gen full-size SUV featuring a full-time four-wheel drive system. The vehicle adopts a plug-in hybrid arrangement with a V6 3.0-liter supercharged engine working together with a high-output motor, an 8-speed automatic gearbox and a high-capacity battery.

The XR-PHEV (Cross Runner) previews a future compact SUV powered by a small direct-injection 1.1-liter turbocharged engine and a high-efficiency motor coupled to a high-capacity battery.

Lastly, Concept AR (Active Runabout) is a next-gen compact MPV offering the maneuverability of an SUV and the spacious cabin of an MPV. It uses the same hybrid powertrain as the XR-PHEV and adopts a "cocoon-like" cabin layout which according to Mitsubishi provides "superior comfort" for all those inside.

All three concepts benefit from Mitsubishi's latest developments of e-Assist active safety technologies and boast next-gen infotainment systems featuring "connected car" tech.

Further details can be accessed in the attached press release.
