The Tokyo Motor Show is a fantastic showcase for Japanese manufacturers to show their best tricks, so Mitsubishi has put all the meat on the grill with the e-Evolution Concept. This new prototype challenges the trends that have dominated the brand in recent years and presents a much more passionate gamble.
As in the case of the Eclipse Cross, the signature of the three diamonds takes an iconic name within its sports history to reinterpretate in the form of electric SUV that serves as a design exercise and incorporates technologies in development for future models.
Within the Mitsubishi roadmap, the way forward is to look for success models that meet their objectives must meet market trends. Hence the choice of another SUV, but taking some of the aspirational elements we both miss in the Japanese brand. Thus, the e-Evolution Concept looks aggressive and dynamic on the outside while on the inside it is respectful of the environment and offers a high dose of connectivity to its occupants.
The electric motor chosen has not revealed its specific data, but do ensure from Japan that it will equip a new generation of four-wheel drive system with high performance independent motors on both axles, three in total. These motors are powered from a high capacity battery pack placed under the vehicle floor.
The 4WD System uses a motor for the two front wheels and two for the two rear wheels, coupling and uncoupling the rear by means of the called Active Taw Control that dynamically controls the behavior offering theoretically a direct and agile answer in any situation
Outwardly it stands out by a front grille Dinamic Shield in black hidden under a layer of glass and with contrasts in blue that denote its electrical nature. Inside this huge grill are hidden cameras and sensors for the systems of aid to the driving besides offering an improvement in the aerodynamics.
To the sides of the front, the optics divided into three levels and generous air intakes channel the flow to cool the electric brake calipers of the front axle. Meanwhile, in the rear part, in the C pillars some fins redirect the air towards the sides of the rear to improve the aerodynamics.
The interior is framed by a minimal glazed surface with hidden pillars that together with the exaggerated wheel arches offer a resounding appearance. In its interior, which is accessed through suicide doors, as in every prototype that stands out, the minimalist, horizontal and futuristic style predominates with a fully digital control panel and a steering control that aspires to be a steering wheel.
The dashboard is a running screen that goes from side to side and is flanked by two smaller screens that project the images of the cameras of vision front, rear and those that act as mirrors.
In addition, AI System introduces artificial intelligence to read road conditions, traffic and driver intent, learning from each situation to respond accordingly and suggesting changes in driving habits once a driver has been created user profile. All controlled by voice.
