► Amalgam drivetrain► Previews babyish SUV► Ignore the turbines, and interior
Mitsubishi is acceleration bottomward on its next-generation architecture and allegation to electrified cartage with the Mi-Tech, which has been apparent at the 2019 Tokyo motor show.
The asperous buggy looks like it can go anywhere with its big auto and beefed-up body, and its constituent amalgam drivetrain is all-wheel drive to mirror such Mitsubishi pastmasters as the Shogun SUV and Lancer Evolution assemblage cars. But the big account is that the abstraction gives cogent clues to Mitsubishi’s long-teased babyish SUV, which will be the third of three new cartage advancing by 2022.
Sort of. The Mi-Tech is abate than Mitsubishi’s current, 4.3m-long crossover, and that’s how it will break with the assembly adaptation as the Japanese SUV maker seeks to get added across into its range. Think of the assembly Mi-Tech as the agnate of Volkswagen’s babyish T-Cross, with Mitsubishi’s Eclipse Cross set to abound to bout the midsize Tiguan and abutting year’s Outlander actuality the agnate of the full-size Touareg.
The Mi-Tech’s adenoids displays Mitsubishi’s new front-end design, with the ‘grille’ comprised of a disconnected chrome X bookending a satin-coloured shield. It’s a attending that adorned the 2019 Engelberg Tourer concept, which previews the next-gen Outlander due in 2020.
There are T-shaped lamps up advanced and at the rear, and asperous SUV cues ample in the artificial wheelarches, active boards and affection underbody protection. Tone that bottomward for the assembly car, and add a roof, rear awning and bristles doors, and the new ASX takes shape. Not that there’s any agreement Mitsubishi will abide the ASX nameplate, apperception you.
Yes, those rear buttresses affection turbines, because…because this is a abstraction car. The turbines augment air to a bunched rear-engine that can bake diesel, kerosene or alcohol, thereby acting as a architect to allegation the array backpack in the chassis. So the Mi-Tech is a range-extender amalgam with constituent adequacy to accord you a appropriate electric ambit from the off.
There are accompanying electric motors on both axles. These motors, forth with electric anchor callipers, acquiesce for absolute ascendancy of drive and braking armament at all four auto independently, optimising absorption in boxy off-road conditions. Mitsubishi says the larboard and appropriate auto can finer be counter-rotated to bear ballsy 180-degree turns – it sounds like a bang on the Baja 1000 off-road race.
‘We are committed to electrification technology, decidedly constituent hybrids,’ said Mitsubishi CEO Takao Kato said. ‘We will be accretion our agency of electrified cartage by carrying added variations and leveraging the assorted electrification technology in the [Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi] accord to accomplish us the baton in the PHEV category.’
Executives promised to cycle out electrification technologies to the new midsize and bunched SUVs by 2022. The Eclipse Cross is accepted to become a constituent amalgam afterward an all-encompassing midlife redesign in 2020, the year the next-generation Outlander is due.
The third agent will be the Mio-Tech assembly car in backward 2021, admitting this babyish SUV is added acceptable to be authentic electric rather than a amalgam accustomed its babyish size.
