The Mitsubishi e-Evolution Concept Will Teach You To Be A Better Driver

2017 Tokyo Motor Show

The Mitsubishi Evolution is making a comeback - but not as we know and love it.

Normally, an announcement involving the Mitsubishi Evolution making a comeback would be cause for celebration, but it was hard to get excited when Mitsubishi announced that the legendary Evo nameplate is being applied to an all-electric crossover, just as the Eclipse has been reborn as a compact SUV. Set to debut as a concept at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show later this month, the Japanese automaker has released new details and some revealing teaser images of the e-Evolution Concept, giving us our best look yet at the electric SUV.

Mitsubishi bills the e-Evolution Concept as a “high-performance all-electric crossover” that “combines the very best of Mitsubishi Motors technology with the go-anywhere flexibility of SUVs.” In contrast to the old Evo, the e-Evolution Concept is powered by a high capacity battery and three electric motors. One drives the front wheels, while the other two power the rear axle to give the concept a four-wheel drive system with electronically controlled torque-vectoring resulting in crisp and nimble handling. The e-Evolution Concept also features an advanced Artificial Intelligence system that uses sensors and cameras to read changes in road and traffic conditions, as well as the driver’s intent.

By seamlessly coordinating the driver’s intent and the performance of the vehicle, the system is designed to act as a driver support that makes it “easier and safer to control the vehicle.” There’s even a coaching function that analyzes the driver’s skill level and creates a tailor-made training program that provides advice through voice dialogue and a dashboard display to help you become a better driver. The Mitsubishi e-Evolution will be revealed on October 25 when the Tokyo Motor Show opens its doors, where it will debut alongside 11 other Mitsubishi models including the Eclipse Cross.
