Tokyo, October 8, 2015 — Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) will debut the MITSUBISHI eX *1 Conceptcompact SUV concept car with a next-generation EV system at the 44th Tokyo Motor Show 2015*2. The concept car is a showcase of MMC’s next-generation electric vehicle (EV) technologies, a new take on the Dynamic Shield front design concept, as well as a vast range of other technologies for superior driving pleasure in a compact crossover package. The entire booth, featuring the MITSUBISHI eX Concept reflects the main theme of Driving Beyond – Another Step Forward With SUVs and Electric Power.
Elegance + SUV + 100% Electric
The MITSUBISHI eX Concept is a vision for a unique 100% electric-powered compact SUV aimed at the fast-growing compact SUV market. It uses MMC’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.
Both exterior and interior indicate the direction MMC Design is taking. Overall, it evokes the image of a sporty crossover zipping nimbly around town as it merges the elegance and stylishness of a “shooting brake” (a term for a coupé with flowing styling fused with a hatchback car, the term originates from British hunting-use horse carriages) with compact SUV lines. The front end is a new interpretation of the Dynamic Shield front design concept.
State-of-the-art Plug-in Hybrid EV Technology and 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 manner. In addition there is a diorama of a virtual community using V2X*3 systems which supply electric power from the Outlander PHEV’sdrive battery to the home and others, visualizing the versatility and possibilities of electric-powered vehicles.
MMC’s 50 Years of Electric Vehicles
The path to the MITSUBISHI eX Concept will be told through a panel display telling the story of 50 years of MMC’s research and development in the field of electric vehicles EV development. Real-life examples that support the display will include a Baja Portalegre 500 Outlander PHEV cross-country rally car*4 along with a custom-wrapped i-MiEV commemorating those 50 years.
Joining these will be a number of models featuring other eco-technologies such as models powered by Clean Diesel engines, minicars, and other eco-friendly vehicles on public days.
In addition at the Smart Mobility City 2015 (SMC)*5 an Outlander PHEV is used to explain the Value of an EV When Stationary. The Outlander PHEV is linked to a V2H*6 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*7 Demonstration where an Outlander PHEV 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.

Hoppá?! Köszönjük Volvo Magyarország! Did you know it's already September 21? Hungary has a time machine device of some sort. They somehow managed to crack the code of travelling through time. There is no other explanation for this. Enjoy the mistakenly(?) leaked gallery of the anticipated Volvo XC40 promovid. Well, the waiting would have sweetened the anticipation. At least in this case. You know the saying where's mystery there's always a hope. There is no mystery here anymore. You like it? We, well.. let's just say this isn't the best Volvo design lately. Or not lately. Ever. Too close to the 40.1 Concept. Which was not the best design either. And even that looked a tad better. To put it this way - there is room for improvement.
New XC40 completes global Volvo line-up for fast-growing premium SUV segment
Volvo Cars, the premium car maker, today further expands its line-up of SUVs with the launch of its new XC40 small premium SUV in Milan, Italy.

A monthly flat-fee subscription means down payments, price negotiations and local price differences belong to the past. Depending on regional availability, Care by Volvo will also include access to a range of digital concierge services such as fuelling, cleaning, service pick-up and e-commerce delivery to the car.
