THIS is the Mitsubishi eX Concept, which showcases the company’s compact SUV vision which is powered by a next-generation battery-powered system.

Mitsubishi says it has “shooting brake” styling with compact SUV lines.

Under the skin is the next-generation EV system which employs a high-capacity and high-performance battery together with compact high-output electric motors making it lighter and more efficient.

The eX has a cruising range of 400km.

Installing the drive battery beneath the body has lowered the centre of gravity and together with its Twin Motor 4WD and S-AWC integrated vehicle dynamics control system, which Mitsubishi says “helps provide handling control which faithfully reflects driver inputs as well as outstanding vehicle stability”.

The powertrain delivers 70kW to both front and rear wheels for a total output of 140kW of power.

Other features include the application of automated driving technology which combines connected car systems, utilising next-generation information services and advanced active safety technology.

Mitsubishi’s eX Concept utilises its safety features to detect malfunctions or abnormalities early and advises the driver to take the vehicle in for repair or servicing.

It also features “Smart Valet Parking”.

Occupants get out of the vehicle after the driver leaves it at the “Smart Valet Parking” area. When they are ready to retrieve their vehicle the driver can press an icon on their smartphone or smartwatch and the vehicle automatically drives itself back to the original Smart Valet Parking area where the driver first left it.

Smart Valet Parking systems provide EV charging bays with wireless charging which uses solar or other renewable energy sources.

EVs that need their battery charged are automatically driven to an available parking spot with a charging bay.

Departure times and other instructions can easily be changed using a smartphone or smartwatch.

Using information from vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-road communications as well as from cameras and radar mounted to the car, the automated driving system analyses the situation around the perimeter of the vehicle and autonomously varies vehicle speed or changes lane accordingly.

The system also acquires information from the Cloud on traffic conditions at the destination and assists the driver in avoiding accidents, congestion or hazards.
