Mitsubishi considers releasing a variety of SUVs by the year 2020, and a production variation of the Mitsubishi eX concept is supposedly among them.
As per a report, the all-electric eX crossover has actually been greenlit for production, which is slated to start anytime in the next 4 years. Again at the 2016 Geneva automobile show, Mitsubishi initially revealed the eX concept at last year’s Tokyo automobile program and showed it.
The file asserts the brand-new SUV will have a variety of 250 miles. That puts it well above the present crop of EVs like the Nissan Leaf, and somewhat over the upcoming Chevrolet Bolt, which is anticipated to provide around 200 miles of variety.
The eX has to do with the exact same size as the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, though the next generation of that crossover is reported to obtain larger. With the firm’s push for electrification, it’s not likely that the production eX will provide a standard combustion engine.
As formerly reported, Mitsubishi’s lineup will be controlled by crossovers. Back in December, Mitsubishi CEO Osamu Masuko stated his firm has actually “altered instructions” and will concentrate on making crossovers as “core vehicles in the United States market”.
Aside from the Outlander Sport, Mitsubishi’s mainstream U.S. lineup consists of the Mirage subcompact, the all-electric i-MiEV, Outlander, and Lancer, which is reported to be ceased. The United States launch of the Outlander plug-in hybrid has actually dealt with several hold-ups, though Masuko asserts that vehicle will lastly show up here this year.
