Mitsubishi is all set to show off its newest, all electric concept SUV, which will be known as eX. The MITSUBISHI eX Concept is a vision for a unique 100 per cent electric-powered compact SUV aimed at the fast-growing compact SUV market. It uses Mitsubishi’s state-of-the art electric-powered technologies and all-wheel control technologies combined with automated driving technologies, connected car technologies, and active safety technologies. The company is tight-lipped about the specifications on the car. No timeline has been declared for the production version of the electric SUV.
STATE-OF-THE-ART PLUG-IN HYBRID TECHNOLOGY & VERSATILITY
The Outlander PHEV area includes a model Outlander PHEV chassis which demonstrates the technical features of Plug-in Hybrid EV and Twin Motor 4WD systems in an easily understandable way. In addition, there is a georama of a virtual community using V2X3 systems which supply electric power from the Outlander PHEV’s drive battery for a myriad of uses, visualising the versatility and possibilities of electric-powered vehicles.
Smart Mobility City 2015 (SMC)5 will display an Outlander PHEV which is used to explain the value of an EV when stationary. The Outlander PHEV is linked to a V2H6 system to reproduce the flow of energy in a day in the life of a home that uses an EV/PHEV.
SMC 2015 will also play host to the Automated Driving Demonstration7 where a test car currently being developed jointly with MMC and Mitsubishi Electric Corporation will be exhibited. This test car will allow visitors to experience a ride in a driverless vehicle. The test ride program allows visitors to experience the functions these cars are equipped with. These include driverless traffic jam navigation by keeping space with slow moving vehicles in congested traffic using ultrasonic sensors to detect the vehicle ahead as well as automated remote parking in a row of parked vehicles using ultrasonic sensors to detect the amount of parking space and obstacles.
