The all new electric car from Mitsubishi, their e-Evolution concept will make its world debut at the 45th Tokyo Motor Show on October 25, 2017, the company just announced.
Offering the public a glimpse of the future of Mitsubishi Motors Corporation, this concept car has taken the brand’s EV knowhow and all-wheel drive SUV expertise to a new level, the company thinks.
Mitsubishi also claims that Artificial Intelligence (AI), combines various elements seamlessly to deliver safe and enjoyable performance that mirrors driver intent under all weather conditions and on all surfaces.
To power the e-Evolution, a triple motor 4WD system employs a single motor to drive the front wheels and a new Dual Motor AYC (Active Yaw Control) system to couple two rear motors through an electronically controlled torque-vectoring Active Yaw Control unit. This is clearly to give it substantial all terrain capability.
A special coaching function allows the vehicle’s on board AI system to transfer knowledge to the driver and to unobtrusively enhance the driving expertise. After building a picture of the driver’s skill level, the system constructs a training program that provides advice through voice dialogue and a large dashboard display. As a result, drivers of all abilities quickly experience a vehicle that behaves the way they want it and soon they find themselves enjoying the driving experience to an even greater degree.
At the Tokyo Motor Show, the MITSUBISHI e-EVOLUTION CONCEPT will be one of 12 Mitsubishi models on display. It will be joined by the new Eclipse Cross coupe SUV (Japan market model), unveiled in Japan for the first time, the Outlander PHEV and other leading MMC models sold in Japan.
Power, range and other figures are currently unknown. Expect official figures to be unwrapped at the launch event in Tokyo.
