CA-MiEV foreshadows the concept of a new generation electric vehicle which will offer high-density energy obtained from a high-efficiency battery system. The concept is distinguished also by the fact that is equipped with a wireless recharging system. Thanks to the body that is built out of lightweight materials and the aerodynamics designed so as to experience the smallest force of air resistance, the CA-MiEV electric vehicle can travel up to 186 miles (300 km) per charge.
The second model, called GR-HEV, represents the concept of a sport utility truck (SUT) type vehicle, namely a sporty pickup equipped with a diesel-hybrid power system. The produced by the front-engine power is transmitted to the new generation wheel drive, equipped with the Super Select 4WD system, available also on the current Pajero off-roader, as well as with the Super All Wheel Control (S-AWC) one, meant to provide high stability traction and driving performance under all road conditions. The Mitsubishi officials say that the GR-HEV concept has a CO2 emission figure below 149 g/km.
More details will be revealed next month at the Geneva Motor Show.
