Automotive expert , Updated:

Mitsubishi unveiled the futuristic XR-PHEV concept during a press conference at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show this week.

Featuring outrageous styling and a performance-oriented yet highly efficient plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) drivetrain, this crossover hints at the future design direction for the Japanese automaker.

"We brought the Concept XR-PHEV to L.A. so that we could talk about our new design direction and how future products will be taking clues from its dynamic lines," said Mitsubishi Motors North America Executive Vice President, Don Swearingen. 

"We also brought it to L.A. to reinforce the message that Mitsubishi is here to stay in the United States. As we regrow the brand we will introduce new models while updating existing ones, creating a new look and a new value proposition for the brand."
