A couple of teaser images with a new concept vehicle have been released by Mitsubishi as the model in question will be officially presented to the public during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.
After talking about the mysterious concept which will be introduced at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show, next month, time has come for Mitsubishi to get ready for one of the biggest automotive events of the year on the Old Continent, the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. The company will be officially pulling the wraps off a brand new concept car during the Swiss automotive event which is believed to be nothing else than an updated version of the Concept XR-PHEV, which has been shown at the Tokyo Motor Show, back in 2013.
The Mitsubishi XR-PHEV Concept was rumored to be transformed into a new generation of the ASX, considering the fact that the model is 75 mm longer, 55 mm wider and 55 mm lower than the outgoing version. The one-off vehicle had solar panels made into the roof, which are capable of charging the auxiliary equipment battery. The interior design was driver oriented and here bucket seats were added, a digital dash display, blind spot assist, lane keep assist, collision mitigation system, adaptive cruiser control and more. Power was provided by a 1.1 liter turbocharged 3-cylinder petrol burner, rated at 100 kW, which was backed up by a 120 kW electric motor, taking its juice from the 14 kWh battery, fitted under the floor. It remains to be seen whether or not Mitsubishi has upgraded it for Geneva because the model was shown back in October last year in Paris too.
