Tokyo Motor Show 2017
Mitsubishi e-Evolution concept rewrites the meaning of the Evo badgeThe Evolution name finds its way onto an EV SUV at the Tokyo Motor Show.
[MUSIC] Good news everyone, the Mitsubishi Evolution is back. The bad news is, it's not the rally bred sports sedan that enthusiasts have come to love. Instead Mitsu is using the Evolution name Aim for is this. The new e-Evolution Concept SUV concept that was just shown here at the Tokyo Motor Show. Powering the e-Evolution is a three motor [INAUDIBLE] drive system with one motor drive in the front wheels and the two torque vectoring motors out back with active yaw control. In theory, the drive train should make the SUV quick and also handle halfway decently. Styling is certainly futuristic with a simulate Lexus spindle grill inspired front end Wrap around windshield, funky roof, and rear suicide doors. For cab and tech, there is an AI system that can learn a driver's capabilities and act as an onboard driving instructor. So it has a personal assistant and communicate with a drone to monitor local traffic conditions. With [UNKNOWN] push towards bolstering its SUV lineup to cater to a marketplace that is hungry for [UNKNOWN], it seems like it is only a matter of time before there is an evolution [UNKNOWN] SUV in showrooms. If that vehicle is gonna be modeled after the eEvolution remains to be seen but I think it's safe to say that the Evolution as we knew it is sadly a thing of the past. [MUSIC]
