Mitsubishi recently unveiled its new Mi-Tech concept at the Tokyo Motor Show.
The Japanese brand says it was built to be a “small plug-in hybrid electric SUV that delivers unparalleled driving pleasure and confidence over all terrain.”
The Mi-Tech is powered by four electric motors – one for each wheel. It also has on on-board gas-turbine power generator that can run on a variety of fuels such as diesel, kerosene and alcohol which can be selected depending on the regions. Further, its exhaust is clean so it responds to environmental and energy issues.
The vehicle comes equipped with Human Machine Interface (HMI) which displays various information detected through sensing technology including advanced optical sensors on an augmented reality (AR) windshield. With vehicle, road, and surrounding traffic conditions shown on the AR windshield, drivers can make accurate, heads-up decisions even in poor visibility.
Equipped also with MI-PILOT, next-generation driver assistance technology, the concept car extends driver support not only on freeways and ordinary roads, but also on unpaved roads.
At the moment there are no plans to build the Mi-Tech, but it may offer a glimpse at Mitsubishi’s styling direction going forward.
