Mitsubishi will show in Tokyo a high roadster with a gas turbine engineOctober 3, 2019
Mitsubishi has published a teaser and some data on a concept car called Mi-Tech, which will premiere at the Tokyo Motor Show in late November. This will be an unusual car, which is a hybrid of a crossover and a roadster, equipped with a gas turbine power plant.
Judging by the image, the external distinguishing features of the new items will be the absence of doors, a swollen hood, massive wheel arches made of composite materials, as well as LED optics.
Mitsubishi Mi-Tech will receive a hybrid powerplant with four electric engines – two on each of the axles. At the same time, instead of the traditional gasoline internal combustion engine, the role of the generator for recharging the batteries will be performed by a small gas turbine engine. For additional cooling of the power plant, four large circular fans are used located behind the cab.
Another feature of the experimental car will be an automatic control system with a human-machine interface. An analysis of the information received from the complex of cameras and sensors will allow avoiding dangerous situations on the road. If necessary, the electronics will be able to intervene in the control.
