Mitsubishi Needs No Proof of Concept at 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show with eX SUV Prospect

Whether we're talking powerhouse Outlander, with a 4x4 drive line and the 2.4L I4 engine to make the most of it, or the zippy Outlander Sport, with a fuel-economical 23 mpg city, Gary Lang Mitsubishi knows Mitsubishi's a go-to for the SUV experience. But the automaker's revelation of a prospective 100-percent-electric SUV kicked the possibilities into higher gear at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Mitsubishi eX promises the compact design of a hatchback with the utility of a crossover, with freeflowing style lines giving way under-hood to a high-energy-density drive battery and front and rear compact high-output motors. And if that's not future-thinking enough, eX's autonomous driving capabilities and Cloud-linked artificial intelligence (AI) take it to a whole new level, adapting the drive-time experience to home Internet searches as well as patterns of travel.

As concerns the safety to back it up, eX showcases a four-wheel-drive drivetrain featuring S-AWC integrated vehicle dynamics and an Active Yaw Control for torque optimization, as well as active safety technologies like a camera and radar to help foresee problems, reducing collision chances, limiting impact damage, and keeping you in the know regarding obstacles and selectively applying brakes to help avoid them.

Why wait to live the Mitsubishi SUV experience? Our McHenry, IL showroom is home to a variety of 2017 Outlander or Outlander Sport builds to help you explore your needs while we anticipate the big eX release. Feel free to stop by to talk shop.
