The 2015 Geneva Motor Show saw the unveiling of Mitsubishi’s newest plug-in hybrid (PHEV) concept vehicle: the Mitsubishi XR-PHEV II.
The XR-PHEV II is an urban crossover employing a lightweight, compact and lightweight front-engine/front-wheel drive PHEV system.
The new PHEV system comprises a MIVEC engine, a new electric motor/generator and a new power drive unit all mounted up front.
The plug-in hybrid can operate in all-electric mode with the engine acting as a generator or supplying additional motive power when needed.
Depending on driving conditions and remaining battery charge, the system automatically switches between all-electric, series hybrid and parallel hybrid modes. By selecting Battery Save or Battery Charge mode, the driver can drive in all-electric mode when they wish to do so.
