Geneva 2018: Mitsubishi e-Evolution Concept To Appear In Europe For The First Time

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation has announced that the e-Evolution Concept will be making its European debut at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show next month.

According to Mitsubishi, the e-Evo concept is a technical prototype to illustrate the strategic directions of a renewed Mitsubishi Motors brand.

Incorporating the strengths of SUV, EV, and Mitsubishi’s future connected mobility customer experience, the e-Evo Concept is powered by electric motors which are fed by a high-capacity battery system.

Paired to the system is triple motor 4WD technology, and Mitsubishi’s Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) vehicle dynamic control system.

Another highlight of the e-Evo Concept’s powertrain package is that the drive battery is located under the floor mid-ship of the vehicle, providing a low center of gravity for the better driving stability.

Mitsubishi also said that the e-Evo will be controlled by an Artificial Intelligence (AI) system which uses an array of sensors allows the AI system to instantly read changes in road and traffic conditions monitors and modulate its responses against the driver’s input.

Design wise, the e-Evo concept is an SUV and will no longer be a performance-oriented sedan.  

Adapting Mistubishi’s archetypal ‘Dynamic Shield’ design language, the e-Evo comes with a black grille, large air intakes, pronounced body lines, huge tyres, and also a large hexagon shape at the rear inspired by the spare tire cover of the Mitsubishi Pajero.

Inside, a large ‘floating’ flat screen spans the full width of the dashboard, displaying information about the surroundings, navigation and coaching information, and an instrument panel appears to float in front of the driver.

Unveiled at last year's Tokyo Motor Show, the e-Evo Concept will be sharing the stage with the updated Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV which will be making its global debut in Geneva next month.
