Mitsubishi has a long history of tidy little pickup trucks, and the Japanese automaker is apparently looking to extend that heritage in a bolder, bigger way with the Concept GR-HEV, a "sport utility hybrid truck."

This previously-teased Mitsubishi concept is the GR-HEV. What it does is to grant us a glimpse into the brand's future design direction, and most likely (very loosely) previews the next generation L200 pickup.

The GR-HEV is interesting from a powertrain point of view, as it offers a diesel-electric hybrid along with the firm's Super All Wheel Control system, or S-AWC. No real technical details are available yet, other than its very low CO2 emissions figure of 149 g/km – an impressive feat for a vehicle of this bulk.

Looks like it'll be an Avalanche style truck, maybe around the size and functionality of the Honda Ridgeline. Even if it does make production, I'll be very surprised if it comes to North America.

Should be an interesting concept for those not needing much payload or capability. Maybe upwards of 40mpg for a diesel hybrid. To be announced Mar 5-6.

Just when you thought you already saw it's worse angle then comes the high arse shot. The rear looks like a dog wanting to get humped. The front looks like a 3 or 4 year old crossover. Doesn't look much like a pickup. Obviously designed for a different consumer.

Ya, I doubt it'll ever make the US market.
