The GR-HEV is powered by a complex powertrain composed of a diesel engine and electric motors, which the company believes is better suited to the sort of heavy-duty work required in the segment. The concept also employs full-time four-wheel drive and a development of Mitsubishi's Super All-Wheel Control system (which governs things like stability and brake force control along with an active center differential) as seen on the production <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/mitsubishi/lancer+evolution/">Lancer Evolution</a>.<br /><div>

<br /> <span style="font-size: 10pt; line-height: 12pt;">In related news, Mitsubishi has also confirmed that it will show a next-generation electric showcar at Geneva dubbed Concept CA-MiEV. With this new concept (inset photo), the company says it is looking to build on the learnings of its <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/mitsubishi/">i citycar</a> and take EVs out of their limited urban roles. To that end, the CA-MiEV boasts "next generation EV systems and high density batteries" that give it a range of 186 miles.</span></div><p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/02/13/mitsubishi-previews-diesel-hybrid-pickup-concept-next-gen-ev-fo/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>Mitsubishi previews diesel hybrid pickup concept, next-gen EV for Geneva</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/02/13/mitsubishi-previews-diesel-hybrid-pickup-concept-next-gen-ev-fo/">Mitsubishi previews diesel hybrid pickup concept, next-gen EV for Geneva</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Wed, 13 Feb 2013 18:30:00 EST.
