Mitsubishi Motors Corporation will present the Concept GC-PHEV and Concept XR-PHEV for the first time in China at the 2014 Beijing International Automotive Exhibition.

The Concept GC-PHEV and the Concept XR-PHEV will point to the future direction of development and manufacturing for Mitsubishi, the automaker announced.

The Concept GC-PHEV is a next-generation full-size SUV with full-time four-wheel drive. It is based on a front engine, rear-wheel drive layout with a plug-in hybrid EV (PHEV) system comprising a 3.0L V-6 supercharged MIVEC engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, with a high-output electric motor and a high-capacity battery to deliver all-terrain performance, according to Mitsubishi.

The Concept XR-PHEV uses a front engine, front-wheel drive layout with a PHEV system that is configured with a downsized 1.1L direct-injection turbocharged MIVEC engine, a lightweight, compact and high-efficiency electric motor with a high-capacity battery.

The two concept vehicles feature the latest bundle of active safety technologies and advanced "connected car" technology, according to the automaker. These functions include a danger detection system that activates the corresponding safety functions and a failure/malfunction early-detection system which urges the driver to seek repairs or other maintenance.
