Mitsubishi Concept Sketch Might Preview The Next Montero, Maybe

Welcome to another reminder that Mitsubishi is still a car company. Other than the cheap and forgettable Mirage hatchback, they don't have a lot of new cars to talk about. But they've just announced that they'll have a new large SUV to show off at the Tokyo Motor Show, oh wait it's a concept.

Mitsubishi released a somewhat clear sketch of what they plan to unveil at November's Tokyo Motor Show and it's a pretty safe guess that it's going to be a representation of the next Montero (or Pajero or Shogun, depending where on the planet you live).

The Concept GC-PHEV full-size SUV seen in the sketch is, of course, a plug-in hybrid and described as something that "offers both the dynamic drivability of an SUV and class-leading environmental performance."

Starving U.S. Mitsu dealers want any new product, but a new Montero has been rumored to arrive here sometime when there's a new Montero to sell globally.

Mitsubishi also previewed two other concepts for Tokyo. The Concept XR-PHEV is a compact SUV designed to look like a sport coupe (yeah, like that'll sell). And the other is the Concept AR, a small crossover/minivan thing with a downsized turbocharged engine. Fun.

And this concludes our reminder about Mitsubishi Motors.
