The Mitsubishi Ground Tourer PHEV Concept (or “GT-PHEV”) was revealed at the 2016 Paris Motor Show.

The overall efficiency of the PHEV system has been improved for the GT-PHEV Concept including, amongst others:

As a result, the concept car achieves an electric-only range of 75 miles and a total cruising range of around 750 miles with a full fuel tank and fully charged battery, along with tailpipe CO2 emissions of under 26g/km.

For the GT-PHEV Concept’s high-output, high-efficiency triple motor 4WD powertrain, electric motive power is supplied to the front wheels by a single 90 kW motor, and to the rear wheels by two 45 kW motors.

The drivetrain also employs MMC’s Super All Wheel Control (S-AWC) integrated vehicle dynamics control system. Comprising Active Front Differential (AFD), which controls torque split between the front wheels, electric Active Yaw Control (AYC) at the rear and Active Stability Control (ASC), S-AWC brings dramatic improvements to the car’s acceleration, cornering and braking:
