Production version of Mitsubishi e-Evolution will debut in fall 2021January 19, 2021
The all-electric SUV based on the Mitsubishi e-Evolution will hit the European car market in 2022. The production version of the concept car is intended to be a rethinking of the old Lancer.
This is the most realistic preview of the new electric SUV that Mitsubishi plans to unveil in fall 2021 with the launch of the eye-catching Mitsubishi e-Evolution concept car. The Japanese brand is already developing this electric model, which some have compared to the new generation EVO, and which will arrive in Europe in 2022. This is one of the most interesting projects in recent years, saving the Mitsubishi e-Evolution concept presented in Tokyo in 2017.
The new Mitsubishi model, whose commercial name is still unknown, will allow the company to join the demanding European electric vehicle market, with an all-new electric car that retains its advanced body format. The front panel of the car will be closest to the concept, while the rear will be slightly modified, especially in the part of the rear doors, which, unlike the concept, will open in the traditional direction.
The upcoming model also shares a new brand image that will introduce the next generation of Outlander, but will feature a new high-gloss black honeycomb grille and an integrated thin strip of LEDs and headlights that follow the principle of separation of functions: the main unit will be located horizontally in the side air intakes. The SUV is made in a very sporty coupe style with a cooler windshield, door mirrors, a roof spoiler and wheels flush with the wheel arches. In addition, the C-pillar will also inherit the top insert.
The upcoming electric crossover will be the first Mitsubishi to receive the CMF-EV platform, sharing it with the Nissan Ariya and the new Renault Megane eVision crossover. The company will offer different versions of the electric crossover, all with four-wheel drive, two electric motors and a battery that will provide a range of 500 kilometers. Mitsubishi could also consider a sportier, three-engine variant of the concept.
