Right before the start of the much awaited Geneva Motor Show, auto companies have been trying to woo probable customers of their next-generation cars by unveiling the cars they’ll showcase at the venue. Mitsubishi is also among those auto manufacturers who didn’t want to wait for the show to commence and has unveiled two eco friendly vehicles that will showcase the Geneva Motor Show. The company has revealed details about the cars, which are dubbed CA-MiEV and GR-HEV.
The first to be unveiled is the CA-MiEV concept car – an all-electric vehicle that packs high energy density batteries and a high-efficiency drivetrain. The car includes new electric motors, inverter and also supports wireless charging. To even better its green credentials, the vehicle now comes with a regenerative braking mechanism. Mitsubishi believes that the CA-MiEV will be able to have an operating range of about 300km, thanks largely to its lightweight and aerodynamic body.
The second vehicle to be unveiled is the GA-HEV – a diesel-electric hybrid sports utility truck. In this car the conventional engine sits up at the front and sends power to a new type of four-wheel drive system with Super Select 4WD and Super All Wheel Control to better traction on different types of terrain. This green car is being claimed to keep CO2 emission under 149 grams per kilometer of drive.
