Mitsubishi XR-PHEV Concept

This plug-in hybrid crossover offers sporty, futuristic styling in a package clearly designed for fuel economy. The XR-PHEV uses a front-wheel drive drivetrain, powered by a 1.1-liter turbocharged MIVEC engine, married to an electric motor and a battery pack. What makes the XR stand out in our minds are its wide, raised rear haunches and angular body details which lead the eye towards its front.

The XR is just one of three concept SUVs recently revealed by Mitsubishi, including the GC-PHEV – a full-size plug-in hybrid, and the Concept AR, which is designed to bridge the gap between SUV and minivan.

All three concepts offer a bold and dynamic look we haven’t seen in the Japanese automaker’s recent production designs – a welcome change if you ask us. Hopefully, some of these design cues will find their way into Mitsubishi’s production vehicles at some point.
