Mitsubishi has revealed two new images of its next Evolution model. Called the e-Evolution, it is said to combine the automaker’s greatest strengths — all wheel drive, electrification, and off-roading prowess.
Back when the first teaser image was released, we thought that it was less Lancer Evolution and more Pajero Evolution. Now that we’ve seen these images, we’re not sure quite what to think. It seems to be, design-wise at least, a melding of the two. Or it could just be a cynical revival of a hallowed name to grab attention on a car that bears no resemblance whatsoever.
There’s also this:
A special coaching function allows the AI system to transfer knowledge to the driver, and to unobtrusively enhance the driving expertise. After building a picture of the driver’s skill level, the system constructs a training program that provides advice through voice dialogue and a large dashboard display. As a result, drivers of all abilities quickly experience a vehicle that behaves the way they want it, and soon they find themselves enjoying the driving experience to an even greater degree.
Make of it what you will. The Mitsubishi e-Evolution concept will be shown at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show starting October 25.
