Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia, the importer and distributor of Mitsubishi Motors vehicles in Malaysia, will showcase the Mitsubishi innovative electric concept cars at the upcoming KL International Motor Show 2010 from 3-12 December.
Themed Drive@Earth, the main attractions at the Mitsubishi pavilion are the Concept PX-MiEV and the i-MiEV SPORT AIR Concept, innovative electric powered vehicles that preview the future of motoring.
Two unique show vehicles are set to amuse many. Both Concept PX-MiEV and i-MiEV SPORT AIR combine eco friendliness with the driving pleasure that has become synonymous with the Mitsubishi Motors brand.
The Mitsubishi Concept PX-MiEV is a plug-in hybrid crossover powered by the latest Mitsubishi Plug-in Hybrid System. This all-new system was designed to allow the vehicle to be driven in full-electric mode, with a 1.6-litre MIVEC gasoline engine generating electricity to assist the front and rear electric motors as and when required. This eliminates the issue of limited range, which has so far confined EVs to being city cars.
Blending Mitsubishi’s sporting heritage with leading EV expertise, the i MiEV SPORT AIR is a concept for a sporty electric vehicle (hence SPORT) with a detachable “clear cutaway” roof panel which brings a wide open feel to the interior (hence AIR).
Concept i-MiEV SPORT AIR
As a sports version of the i-MiEV, the SPORT AIR uses a more powerful version of the permanent magnet synchronous electric motor that powers the standard car, generating 60 kW of power and 230 Nm of torque (i-MiEV makes 47 kW and 180 Nm).
Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia will also be displaying its latest models at KLIMS 2010 – the ASX compact crossover and the Lancer Sportback sedan, enhanced with additional parts and accessories to inspire the public and owners on the possibilities available to them.
The all new ASX compact crossover was launched in Malaysia last month and has received encouraging response for its city friendly ‘Smart Size’, high quality interior, nippy handling and trendy looks.
The Lancer Sportback is a stylish and sporty hatchback as it is, but the KLIMS showcar ups the ante with original Ralliart parts in and out. The popular Triton pick-up truck is also displayed with additional kit.
The legendary Pajero 4X4 and Pajero Sport GS SUV will also be showcased with dressed-up equipment.
A Ralliart merchandise counter will offer original merchandise to fans at attractive prices.
