Mitsubishi GT PHEV CONCEPT – Video
Mitsubishi has unveiled the third model in its ‘Form follows Function’ design philosophy with the release of the GT-PHEV Concept in Paris.
The vehicle’s launch comes on the back of the respective debuts of the Concept XR PHEV II and eX Concept and is thought to provide a glimpse at the next-generation Outlander.
Power for the GT-PHEV Concept comes courtesy of a plug-in hybrid electric powertrain. This setup combines a 25 kWh battery pack mounted under the floor, one electric motor at the front, two electric motors at the rear and a 2.5-liter petrol engine that acts as a generator under normal driving conditions.
In all-electric mode, Mitsubishi claims that the concept can cover 120 km (75 miles) on a single charge. The range then extends to 1,200 km (745 miles) when the petrol engine kicks in.
