According to preliminary data, the debut of the Mitsubishi Airtrek electric SUV will take place at the Chongqing Auto Show, which will begin on June 12.
Recall that the name Mitsubishi Airtrek was the first generation Outlander for the Japanese market: these machines were produced from 2001 to 2008. But soon the Airtrek name will go to a completely different car: an electric crossover. Images of the Mitsubishi Airtrek prototype were published by the Chinese joint venture GAC Mitsubishi Motors, which will produce the new electric SUV. In fact, GAC began producing rechargeable hybrids and electric cars for the Mitsubishi brand under the Eupheme name three years ago.
The new Mitsubishi Airtrek electric car will bear the logos with three diamonds, although, in fact, this is a redesigned Aion V crossover, which was introduced a year ago and is positioned on the local market as an expensive and advanced model (the Aion brand belongs to GAC) … It is similar in size to the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.
Judging by the photographs of the camouflaged prototype, the new Mitsubishi Airtrek will differ from the Chinese “donor” in other lighting equipment and bumpers. It is possible that the changes will also affect the interior of the car. But the electrical engineering will definitely not change: the Airtrek will have the same single electric motor with a return of 184 hp. and 350 Nm of torque. The power reserve of the electric car should reach 600 km according to the NEDC cycle. According to speedme.ru, the debut of the Mitsubishi Airtrek electric crossover will take place at the Chongqing Auto Show, which will open its doors on June 12.
