The Japanese carmaker Mitsubishi has announced yesterday its plans on bringing two new concepts to next month’s Geneva Motor Show. The two are called CA-MiEV and GR-HEV and will be showcasing the firm’s next-gen advanced technologies. The CA-MiEV is considered to be a next generation electric vehicle that comes with a high-efficiency system as well as high-energy density batteries. Other than that, it has been fitted with new motor and inverter, regenerative braking support and a wireless charging system. It boasts a lightweight and aerodynamic body, promising to provide a total range of up to 186 miles (300 km).
Regarding the GR-HEV, this would have to be a SUT – sport utility truck and at its heart is a diesel-hybrid system. The conventional diesel engine is installed at the front and transfers the power to the next generation 4WD system developed by Mitsubishi which has a Super Select 4WD mode and Super All Wheel Control. These systems work together to provide the GR-HEV the best traction available regardless of the road conditions. The concept will have CO2 emissions of under 149 g/km.
Mitsubishi will reveal additional details about both concepts in approximately three weeks.
