The MITSUBISHI e-EVOLUTION CONCEPT at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show is an all-electric, high-performance SUV.
The MITSUBISHI e-EVOLUTION CONCEPT EV system uses high-performance electric motors, fed by a high-capacity battery system. The drive battery is located under the floor mid-ship of the vehicle, providing a low centre of gravity.
The triple motor 4WD system employs a single motor to drive the front wheels complemented by a new Dual-Motor Active Yaw Control (AYC) system that couples two rear motors through an electronically controlled torque-vectoring AYC unit. All of this is integrated into MMC’s unique Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) vehicle dynamic control system to improve its cornering and traction performance.
The MITSUBISHI e-EVOLUTION CONCEPT has an Artificial Intelligence (AI) system that augments the driver’s capabilities. An array of sensors allows the AI system to instantly read changes in road and traffic conditions, as well as the driver’s intent. The system coordinates driver intent with vehicle performance.
Mitsubishi says that the new e-EVOLUTION CONCEPT combines the company’s expertise with SUVs and EVs, and reflects its new “Drive your Ambition” brand strategy.
