Japanese automaker Mitsubishi has revealed its Airtrek crossover at the Auto Guangzhou in China. It will be exclusively sold in the country. As for the highlights, the four-wheeler has an imposing design and a minimalist cabin with lots of technology. It draws power from an electric powertrain and promises a range of 520km per charge. Here are more details.
Why does it matter?
- The new Mitsubishi Airtrek was showcased in concept form at the Shanghai Auto Show in April this year. It has been developed by the brand's joint venture, GAC Mitsubishi Motors.
- This car is exclusive to the Chinese market. However, its design cues and features might make their way to another model in India in the future. It will be a good contender here.
The car has dual-tone wheels and T-shaped taillights
The Mitsubishi Airtrek has a muscular bonnet, a large grille with matte black-colored slats, a wide air vent, and a split lighting cluster with LED DRLs. It is flanked by roof rails, blacked-out B-pillars, ORVMs, thick cladding on the wheel arches, and dual-tone alloy wheels. A shark-fin antenna, a beefy bumper, and wrap-around T-shaped LED taillights grace the rear end.
It runs on a 181hp electric powertrain
Mitsubishi Airtrek packs an electric motor and a 69.9kWh battery pack. The setup delivers a combined output of 181hp of power. Meanwhile, the car delivers a range of 520km on a single charge.
The vehicle gets AR navigation and a multifunctional steering wheel
The Mitsubishi Airtrek has a spacious cabin, featuring a large center console with buttons for the electronic parking brake, a minimalist dashboard, and a multifunctional steering wheel. It packs a digital instrument console with support for Augmented Reality (AR) navigation and a freestanding touchscreen infotainment system. The safety of the passengers is ensured by multiple airbags and hazard lights.
