Falken concept tyre shown on Mitsubishi GT-PHEV Concept at Paris Motor Show
A new concept tyre developed by Falken is being shown at the Paris Motor Show, fitted to Mitsubishi Motor Corporation’s new Mitsubishi GT-PHEV Concept, which is being shown for the first time.
The new Falken concept tyre combines high performance with a cutting-edge dynamic design thanks to its use of an innovative directional tread pattern developed to match the style of the Mitsubishi GT-PHEV Concept. The vehicle is Mitsubishi’s next-generation crossover concept SUV designed to be a ‘Ground Tourer’, a car made for cruising over vast open lands, and is based on Mitsubishi’s overall ‘Dynamic Shield’ design concept.
It’s not the first time that Mitsubishi has selected Falken as a partner. Concept tyres from the Japanese manufacturer were featured on the Mitsubishi Concept XR-PHEV II, shown at the Geneva International Motor Show in 2015.
The new Mitsubishi GT-PHEV Concept with Falken concept tyres is being shown on the Mitsubishi booth at the Paris Motor Show, located in Pavillon 3, Stand 209, running until 16 October 2016.
