Mitsubishi to unveil e-Evolution concept at Tokyo Motor Show

Postado Setembro 20, 2017

We will bring you more details as they come to hand on the concept, and other new Mitsubishi products set to debut in Tokyo.

Mitsubishi has teased a brand new concept which it plans to display at the end of next month at the Tokyo Motor Show.

Earlier this year Mitsubishi boss Trevor Mann said the next Evo would not necessarily be a sedan - and this low-slung "flagship concept", with four doors and dramatic buttress-like C pillars, is described as an SUV coupé.

It was already known that Mitsubishi is planning to revive the Evo brand after it was last seen on the 2015 Lancer sold in the United Kingdom market. The Mitsubishi e-Evolution concept is believed to pack in traits of the Lancer Evolution along with the Eclipse Cross that was recently launched in the USA market.

It'll be electrically-driven, for one thing, while Mitsubishi is promising four-wheel drive and "advanced artificial intelligence technology" will feature - although what this last aspect will comprise is being kept under wraps ahead of the concept's official reveal. It's called the e-Evolution and has been envisioned as a real performance auto with an electric powertrain and four-wheel drive. The e-Evolution gets a 4WD electric drivetrain. This suggests that autonomous technology will be used in future models.

Mitsubishi will announce more details on its new flagship concept vehicle at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show, which takes place from 27 October.
