The Mitsubishi Concept PX-MiEV is a prototype plug-in hybrid crossover utility vehicle, first exhibited at the Tokyo Motor Show in September 2009.[1][2][3] It uses a 85 kW (116 PS; 114 hp) 1.6 litre gasoline engine as a powerplant and generator for two 30 kW electric motors, one on each axle.[1][4] Mitsubishi claims it to be capable of up to 50 kilometres per litre (141 mpg-imp; 118 mpg-US) under optimal driving conditions.[1][5][6]

The vehicle's exterior styling supposedly gives clues to the design of the third generation of Mitsubishi Outlander,[4][7][8] as well as showcasing some technologies which could make it into production.[8][9][10][11]

The Concept PX was also exhibited at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2009[4][8] and the Geneva Motor Show in March 2010.[12]

Concept PX-MiEV II

At the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show, Mitsubishi unveiled the Concept PX-MiEV II, which is a follow up to the PX-MiEV study first shown at the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show. Compared with the original concept, it has a higher roofline, more practical and larger side mirrors, more conventional looking alloy wheels, lights and bumper designs. The concept has a larger 2.0 litre MIVEC engine rated at 70 kW (95 PS; 94 hp). It also has a pair of electric motors at both front and rear, delivering an output of 60 kW (82 PS; 80 hp) each.[13][14]
