Mit­subishi drops another teaser of up­com­ing e-Evo­lu­tion con­cept

The Standard (St. Catharines) - - DRIVING - NICK TRAGIANIS

Mit­subishi has dropped another teaser of the e-Evo­lu­tion con­cept, now promis­ing a whole host of ad­vanced driv­ing fea­tures.

The Ja­panese au­tomaker says the con­cept will fea­ture an ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence sys­tem, em­ploy­ing sen­sors to mon­i­tor road and traf­fic con­di­tions up ahead, all in the name of “seam­lessly co-or­di­nat­ing driver in­tent with ve­hi­cle per­for­mance.”

In fact, it seems as though the eEvo­lu­tion con­cept will em­pha­size a sur­pris­ing amount of per­for­mance, as the AI sys­tem will also of­fer a “train­ing pro­gram” of sorts, an­a­lyz­ing the driver’s skills and of­fer­ing tips and pointers based on those eval­u­a­tions through the in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem. It can also con­trol cer­tain func­tions through voice com­mands, in­clud­ing wind­shield wipers, cli­mate con­trol, and light­ing.

Mit­subishi still hasn’t an­nounced full pow­er­train de­tails, but we know a to­tal of three high­torque, high-per­for­mance elec­tric mo­tors will power the e-Evo­lu­tion. Those mo­tors will be cou­pled to a “high-ca­pac­ity bat­tery.”

We’ll bring you full de­tails on Mit­subishi’s e-Evo­lu­tion con­cept from the Tokyo Mo­tor Show, which runs Oc­to­ber 28 to Novem­ber 5.
