Mitsubishi made waves at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show with the North American introduction of its Concept GC-PHEV. Combining innovative themes and advanced technology into one concept, the vehicle sports signs of what we can expect to see in the future of Mitsubishi.
Despite its full size, the SUV features a forward-thinking muscular design and agile stance we previously associated only with smaller vehicles. In addition, Mitsubishi’s engineers continue to develop new ways to increase efficiency, providing the concept with a supercharged MIVEC V6 engine and electric motor combination to offer 335 horsepower.
The concept also seems futuristic through the use of the Tactical Table. By simply placing a smartphone on the device, the table becomes the source of connectivity between the phone and the vehicle, enabling the collection, creation, sharing, and exchange of information.
“We brought the Concept GC-PHEV to Chicago because it showcases into our future technology and design themes,” said Don Swearingen, executive vice president of Mitsubishi Motors North America.
“The Concept showcases aggressive styling and a level of refinement that will be coming to Mitsubishi vehicles. All of our 2016 model year vehicles will be refreshed with our new brand identity, starting with the 2016 Outlander.”
There is so much to look forward to this year as the Mitsubishi brand continues to make its presence a more dominant force in the U.S, auto market. We at Larry Jay Mitsubishi can’t wait for the refreshed models to go on sale… and to possibly learn of plans to bring the Mitsubishi Concept GC-PHEV to production?
