Mitsubishi has introduced their new electric eX Concept. According to the company this vehicle can cross 248.5 miles per charge and it comes offered with one electric motor on each axle, that produce 188 hp in total. These motors are powered by a 45 kWh battery pack. Another thing that we want immediately to mention is that lightweight materials are used and this car is not heavy at all helping it to be more efficient.
Three drive modes are available for the driver to choose. You can pick Auto, Snow or Gravel or you can just relax because the new Mitsubishi eX Concept also offers autonomous drive system. The new car sports some state-of-the-art technology and integrates AI services cloud-stored internet searches to help you get from A to B much faster and easier. You can also remotely access this EV from a Smartphone Link, but at this point, it is not clear to what extent these controls go.
When it comes to the safety features, there aren’t many new things. However, a Driver Monitor system will be included, and it uses an infrared camera in the dash and sensors in the steering column as well. Onboard computer can determine how tired you are by monitoring biological signals and give the adequate signal to prevent any critical situations.
The Mitsubishi eX also comes with Automated Valet Parking system and Wireless Battery Charging. The engineers from the Japanese automaker have been developing these systems for years, and now they have finally put them into a concept car. The production model will not arrive soon, but the eX Concept shows us that Mitsubishi is not playing around.
Here is what the COO of Mitsubishi Motors North America, Don Swearingen said: “The eX Concept redefines the future of the compact SUV and is representative of the company’s design direction, both inside and out. With nearly 50 years’ experience of automotive electrification technology, we have the expertise and know-how to pioneer a new future with next-generation electric vehicles.”
