2017-10-25: Mitsubishi revives Evo name for EV concept

What's all this then?

This is the Mitsubishi e-Evolution.

Hang on, hold up, that's not an Evo. It looks like an SUV.

It's the way of the world, man. No-one wants rally-inspired saloons any more, they want swift and sure-footed SUVs, and this could be just the thing.

Really? Convince me...

OK, well we don't know the power output yet, but the e-Evolution has three electric motors; one for the front axle, and one each for the rear wheels. That's where the connection with classic Evos comes in. The two rear motors make up a new Dual Motor Active Yaw Control system, the spiritual electric successor to the original AYC setup in Evos of old. It can shuffle the power between those rear wheels, and "provides crisp and nimble handling that faithfully mirrors driver intent".

Go on. This sounds good.

It gets better. Mitsubishi says that the e-Evolution also has an on-board artificial intelligence system, not for autonomous driving, but for driver training. It can work out your level of skill, and then set up a training course to bring that skill level up a bit. "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," according to Mitsubishi. "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."

That... actually sounds kind of cool.

Doesn't it? Mitsubishi will also show off how the AI system can act as a digital bridge between your car and your home, can recognise your voice patterns to learn your likes and dislikes, and allow you to control functions like the lights and wipers with your voice. It can even connect to a drone to take a look at what the traffic's like up ahead. There will also be integration with Amazon's Alexa digital assistant.

And any sign of Tommi Makkinen?

No, he's gone to Toyota to run its world rally team.
