Mitsubishi Evolution XI Launched at Tokyo Motor Show
Mitsubishi has revealed an all-new Mitsubishi Evolution XI at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show, which took place this week. The car seems to stray from the philosophy of rallying in the totality of the use of turbo whistles and opposite locks.
According to the company’s new global strategy, the concept of the Mitsubishi e-Evolution that’s unveiled at the Motor show looks more as tech prototype instead of an upcoming production car. Although, it should be mentioned that the car is different from the Mitsubishi Evolution XI, just in case some enthusiasts feel worried or sceptical.
This EV crossover attributes Dynamic Shield also known as the face of Mitsubishi’s family, but in this case, the black grille is supported by a glass cover, highlighted of course by blue lines appeared with every hybrid vehicle or EV. Sensors and cameras are also covered behind the glass, also configured with the systems that give the driverless capabilities and e-Evolution zero emissions.
As per the designers’ word of mouth, the inspiration has been taken from the venerable Paiero at the back, leaving the backup tyre on the tailgate and finishing off the marvellous design. To improve aerodynamics in the model, the company has installed C-pillars helping it down to draw air which exits either side of the bumper, which sounds neat.
The car looks more spacious from the pictures taken of, thanks to no installation of an engine firewall and a full-width dash with flat screen, flanked by two screens on the outer edge that act as exterior mirrors, only via videos and cameras.
The company promises for the Mitsubishi Evolution XI model to be a high-performance crossover, but it hasn’t disclosed the details about power. Though rumours are there that model would at least come with old torque-vectoring yaw control with new breaks using electric callipers apart from conventional hydraulic ones.
Talking about the AI system, futures drivers of Mitsubishis will have coaching available, with an AI that can design a program for you based on your ability to drive.
