Mitsubishi PX-MiEV

The Mitsubishi PX-MiEV concept is on its way to Tokyo, and with it, it brings an interesting plug-in hybrid system that operates in several different modes. According to Autocar, the plug-in system on the concept may find its way into the next-generation Lanser Evolution. The Evo X uses the same AWD system as is featured in the PX-MiEV concept, and according to Autocar’s report, Mitsubishi insiders have indicated that the plug-in system could find its way into the Evo by 2013. The plug-in hybrid system features a gasoline engine and front- and rear-axle electric motors that kick on and off based upon power and driving conditions. Of course, with many questions surrounding the viability of the plug-in system within the Evo (price, weight, etc.), and production of the Evo XI at a standstill, it still remains a big question mark.
