Mitsubishi showed off one of its newest concepts at the Chicago Auto Show earlier this month, for what will be one of its first SUVs in years. The automaker is calling it the Concept GC-PHEV, and the model boasts a plug-in hybrid powertrain.
The vehicle technically received its world debut at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, but the Chicago Show marked its North American premiere. Hopefully this is a sign that the release schedule for the GC-PHEV concept is moving quickly.
The Mitsubishi SUV will get its power from a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine, good for 335 horsepower, while a 70 kW electric motor adds 94 horsepower to its total number. No word yet on the mpg rates for the vehicle, but that information is bound to slip soon.
With its curvy, chrome appearance, the GC (Grand Cruiser) PHEV truly looks like a car from the future. You can check out a gallery of the Mitsubishi GC-PHEV concept here, to evaluate for yourself.
