Mitsubishi has released an official rendering of the Concept XR-PHEV II ahead of its debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. The Concept XR-PHEV II is based on the Concept XR-PHEV that was unveiled at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, and gets restyled upper grille, air dam and air intakes. The chrome accents are now seen only behind the rear door window panels. The A-Pillar has also been tweaked to make it look closer to that of a production-spec vehicle. The concept also features redesigned headlamps and wheels, and gains door-mounted sleek sideview mirrors.
The small SUV concept is likely to evolve into the company’s second PHEV following the Outlander PHEV that was launched first in Japan in 2013. The front-wheel drive compact crossover’s powertrain consists of a conventional combustion engine and a newly developed 161 hp (163 ps) electric motor. The CO2 emissions of the concept vehicle are lower than 40 g/km.
