Mitsubishi Concept GC-PHEV Shows its Futuristic Design in Chicago
We do expect a Mitsubishi Concept car to debut at the Geneva Motor Show this year. However, we were surprised to see another concept debuting at the Chicago Auto Show, called Mitsubishi Concept GC-PHEV. It is absolutely breath-taking with its futuristic design and large crossover qualities. It is visible that Mitsubishi has imbued in it its new design language. The vehicle is driven by a powerful but highly efficient supercharged V6 engine as well as an electric motor, making it a plug-in hybrid. The transmission is an eight-speed automatic and there is a full-time Super All-Wheel Control all-wheel drive.
The company also said that this GC-PHEV features technology which will be incorporated into future vehicles. As you can see the concept features bold and muscular styling that is not typical for the current trend in the automotive industry. Its drivetrain system produces an overall output of 335 horsepower (246 kW).
New technology incorporated in the concept is the Tactical Table. This is an innovative interactive information system that is available to everyone inside the vehicle. In summary it works in this way: when the driver or a passenger places their smartphone atop the Tactical Table, they can create, collect, exchange and share information with others using the Concept GC-PHEV's communication system.
Furthermore, there are also additional technological features including the "Connected Car" Technology, AR Windshield, Pedestrian Collision Mitigating Auto-braking, Rearward Blind Spot Vehicle Warning, Unintentional Vehicle Move Off Control, Driver Monitor and many more. If you are any near Chicago, go and see it, it's worth it!
