Mitsubishi getting ready for Tokyo Auto Salon with rugged concepts image

The Japanese automaker has decided to deliver a set of four off-road inclined prototypes for this year’s edition of the Tokyo Auto Salon that will start at the end of the week.

The North American International Auto Show in Detroit is in the news today but we’re already gearing up for the next event in the calendar – the Tokyo Auto Salon which kicks off on Friday. The series of concept prepared to take the spotlight at Mitsubishi’s booth are paired versions of the Outlander PHEV and Delica D5, respectively. First off we have the Outdoor Gear concepts (one for the Outlander and one for the D5) which have the same matte pearl white paint that will get contrasting orange trim – the interior reflects the exterior with a black theme featuring orange accents and mesh fabric seats using suede trim. The Outlander version will be clad in 20-inch rims shod in off-road tires – other interesting updates include a roof-mounted bike rack or a rear spoiler. The Delica D5 minivan meanwhile has LED daytime running lights, faux carbon front bumper, unique 16-inch wheels, as well as brush guards.

The other pair – the Active Camper concepts – use a matte silver paint with black camo pattern and come with 20-inch wheels. The Outlander is differentiated through its adjustable suspension and custom body kit with roof box and 1,500-watt auxiliary power system. The Delica D5 meanwhile has a sportier grille and brush guards. The set of four concepts will be joined at the event lasting between Friday and Sunday by a replica of the rally-spec Outlander PHEV prepared for the Baja Portalegre 500 event.
