    Japanese automaker Mitsubishi has teased its all-new concept crossover, which is likely to be the preview to the brand’s all-new flagship model. Named as the Mitsubishi e-Evolution Concept, the new crossover SUV concept model is scheduled to be officially unveiled at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show, which is slated to take place next month. The all-new Mitsubishi e-Evolution has been designed to bring in a real performance crossover model that is powered by an electric drivetrain along with all wheel drive system. From the officially released teaser image, it can be ascertained that the e-Evolution is a 5-door coupe-SUV model.

    Japanese automaker Mitsubishi has teased its all-new concept crossover, which is likely to be the preview to the brand’s all-new flagship model.

The all-new Mitsubishi e-Evolution has been designed to bring in a real performance crossover model that is powered by an electric drivetrain along with all wheel drive system. From the officially released teaser image, it can be ascertained that the e-Evolution is a 5-door coupe-SUV model.

    The Mitsubishi e-Evolution resurrects the Evolution nameplate, which was highly appreciated in its time. The e-Evolution’s design and body-style is not being viewed in good light by many auto experts and media, who have the view that the Japanese car maker is destroying the impressive Evolution moniker by offering an awkward coupe-SUV. However, everyone might not have the same opinion, as the Mitsubishi e-Evolution is an entirely new concept model altogether and will be giving birth to an all-new performance crossover model.

     

    Moreover, apart from a different, racy design (from whatever can be figured out from the teaser picture), the Mitsubishi e-Evolution will also be a highly futuristic or future ready vehicle. According to Mitsubishi, this all-electric performance crossover-SUV concept will be boasting of the implementation of 'advanced artificial intelligence technology'. Although the company didn’t reveal directly what the artificial intelligence is actually about, it can be safely assumed as high level of autonomous or self-driving car technology. Thus, the new Mitsubishi e-Evolution concept is also at par with many new concepts from the house of several global auto majors, which come packed with green technology along with fully autonomous driving capabilities. The released teaser image also shows that the e-Evolution concept comes with good ground clearance along with huge alloy wheels, which means it comes ready with the capability to take on the un-beaten rough roads. The vehicle’s door handles can’t be noticed in the teased image and are probably designed to be hidden. The teaser picture also shows that the crossover has been endowed with cameras to do the work of conventional wing mirrors and more.

     

    The all-new Mitsubishi e-Evolution’s fascinating rear design shows-off two elaborate extensions that are parts of roof-mounted spoiler, which look like flying buttress and flamboyant LED tail lights with tri-blade like graphics. There's also a diffuser with light blue accents and e-Evolution logo to shout its electric drivetrain.

    While commenting on the Mitsubishi e-Evolution, the company said that the concept will be coming under new circumstances and start a new era of the company’s long-term growth and sustainable development. The concept will return to its roots, while embrace the future in a better way at the same time.

    Well, we certainly don’t think this fancy concept will destroy the Evolution name. On the contrary Evolution stands for well, ‘evolution’; and Mitsubishi is just trying to remain true to the meaning of the moniker and seems to bringing something very interesting and futuristic.
