The Japanese based automaker Mitsubishi is offering us with a preview of the next ASX generation by unveiling the XR-PHEV Concept car, during the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show. The model in question is 75 mm longer, 100 mm wider and 55 mm lower than the outgoing ASX and it’s aimed towards combining the SUV functionality with sport coupe looks.

The Mitsubishi XR-PHEV is taking its power from a 1.1 liter turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine, which is producing 100 kW, backed up by an electric motor, with a high boost converter, generating an extra 120 kW, and a 14 kWh battery, fitted under the floor. The standard drive mode is the EV, but the driver can select from the other two modes too, the Series Hybrid and the Parallel Hybrid.

Mitsubishi says that the new XR-PHEV Concept has been fitted with solar panels, made into the roof, which are able to charge the auxiliary equipment battery. Inside the model we can find the driver oriented design, the bucket seats, the wide range of car technologies and the digital dash display. Safety features include the lane keep assist, blind spot assist, adaptive cruise control, collision mitigation system, unintentional vehicle move-off control and more.
