Mitsubishi will reveal two new ultra-green concepts at next month's Geneva Motor Show - and one of them could potentially offer a first look at the next Triton pickup.

The first of the two concepts will be the GR-HEV, a new diesel-electric hybrid pickup that, from the teaser shot shown here, is likely a stylised look at a new production model.

If so, the GR-HEV wouldn't be Mitsubishi's first hybrid concept to reach showrooms, with the PX-MiEV eventually transforming into the new Outlander SUV now available in Australia.

In concept form, the GR-HEV matches a diesel engine with two electric motors, and while specifics have not been released, Mitsubishi promises carbon emissions as low as 149g/km.

Mitsubishi's Super Select 4WD system is featured, along with a new version of the brand's Super All Wheel Control traction system.

As for styling, the concept previewed here features a new take on the 'sport utility truck' design of the current model, including the familiar curve to the rear of the cab.

Whether the GR-HEV will skip to production remains to be seen, although the carmaker's President, Osamu Masuko, confirmed with TMR last year that development of the new Triton is underway.

Mitubishi will also reveal a new all-electric concept in Geneva, dubbed CA-MiEV.

Details are again vague, although it is likely that the CA-MiEV will be bother larger and more style-focused than the tiny i-MiEV already available in Australia.

Among the car's features are a set of high energy-density batteries, a wireless charging system, regenerative braking, and a new motor and inverter.

Mitsubishi says that, depending on use, the CA-MiEV will offer a driving range of up to 300 kilometres between charges.
