The Mitsubishi GR-HEV concept is a glimpse into the exciting future of the Mitsubishi brand. The ambitious vehicle aims to close the gap between hybrid and utility and teases a future where the lot at Bakersfield Mitsubishi may be filled with hybrid or electric cars of all shapes and sizes. The future is almost here and we’re excited!
A Worthy Successor
All the way back in 1978 a star was born in the Mitsubishi L200 pickup truck. Since then the company has had a lot of other models including the Outlander, Lancer, and Mirage, but none have been a conceptual heir to the L200 throne, until now. Backed by the company’s renowned full-time 4WD technology adding torque regulation for excellent all-terrain performance and improved towing stability, the GR-HEV is truly a worthy successor in the Mitsubishi line.
A Concept That’s Easy to Grasp
The GR-HEV promises to be simpler and more affordable than either the EV or PHEV. Aiming to be a hybrid that appeals to a broader audience than the current generation of economic vehicles, it’s not all just about the gas mileage. The GR-HEV’s hybrid electric motor and diesel engine also boast the added benefits of faster response times and increased high-end torque for hauling. Featuring smooth curves and aerodynamic chunkiness that really break the mold for its segment, the GR-HEV concept is clearly destined to shake things up in the truck world and we can’t wait to get it here at Bakersfield Mitsubishi!
