Mitsubishi is pretty desperate to prove they are still alive. To that end, they are bringing 3 new concepts to the Tokyo auto show this year.
And they are all really weird...
First, this big one. The Concept GC-PHEV. (GC is for "Grand Cruiser).That looks like a weird version of their current Pajero/Montero. It is powered by a 3.0 Liter V8 and 8 speed auto.
In my opinion, it tries way too hard to look futuristic. And ends up quite vulgar.
(Which actually might be a good thing for a large SUV these days...)
A hybrid powered by an electric motor and a new 1.1 Liter Turbo engine. It seats 7.
Also powered by the 1.1 Liter engine.
I think all of these look quite goofy. And a bit old. Like concepts from the 90's.
But, if they were in dealership right now, at least they would give Mitsubishi something that stands out in a crowd.
Unfortunately, if ever produced, they will be toned way down. And the whole process will take years...
They need good, modern stuff right now.
