It’s been a while but Mitsubishi has promised to break away from the everyday design of its vehicles with three completely new models to be unveiled at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show in Japan. Mitsubishi has new @earth TECHNOLOGY for these cars which focuses on environmental responsibility and driving pleasure plus safety and toughness.

The first offering is called the Concept Grand Cruiser Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle. (Whew! Just call it the GC-PHEV.) This is a full size SUV with a new front end and new headlight configuration. It comes equipped with S-AWC or super all-wheel control which allows it good off-road performance and superior handling. It’s also loaded with safety technology and comes with wireless connectivity for the convenience of the driver.

Next is the Concept Cross Runner Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (XR-PHEV). As its name suggests it is a crossover vehicle along the lines of a sport coupe with a lightweight construction which gives it above average fuel efficiency. It also comes with all the fancy gadgets of the GC-PHEV.

Lastly, there’s the Concept Active Runabout. It is a compact MPV with the mobility of an SUV. It is not a hybrid and runs on gasoline with a direct injection turbocharged engine. The selling point of this one is that it has multiple seat arrangements and occupant space of an MPV which makes it comfortable while remaining compact. Something similar to this called the Grandis was sold in Australia from 2004–2010.

So far, this is all the information that has been released by Mitsubishi. We’ll just have to wait for the show on November 22nd to learn more.
