Leaked 2009 Mitsubishi Concept PX-MiEV

This is

Mitsubishi Concept PX-MiEV’s

front and rear wheels are powered by two permanent magnet synchronous motors and is also fitted with a 1.6L DOHC MIVEC gasoline engine which can power the front wheels as well as work as a generator. In addition, the vehicle comes with the newly-developed Mitsubishi Plug-in Hybrid System in which electronic circuitry automatically switches to the optimum drive mode for different driving conditions and remaining energy in the drive battery to extract maximum efficiency from the electric motors and from the gasoline engine.

Concept PX-MiEV also utilises the MiEV OS (MiEV Operating System) which selects the optimum drive mode through integrated control of the EV components and the gasoline engine as well as controls optimum electrical charge and output in response to remaining battery energy through constant monitoring of the drive battery. The Mitsubishi Concept PX-MiEV is equipped with a power supply mode that allows the use of some battery power to supply domestic appliances or as an emergency power source in the event of a natural disaster. The Mitsubishi Concept PX-MiEV is equipped with the same handling system as the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, including the S-AWC (Super All Wheel Control), the AYC and has the E-AYC (Electric-powered Active Yaw Control) system which uses a differential motor to control rear wheel torque split.
