The MITSUBISHI eX Concept is called an electric crossover that will be shown at the Tokyo Motor Show. It shows what electric cars will look like in the near future. It features an augmented realty windshield display and HUD display with all kinds of connected car functions.
It features automated driving technology which combines connected car technology, utilizing next-generation information systems, and advanced active safety technology. When it detects danger it quickly and precisely uses its safety features and is also equipped with functions which detect malfunctions or abnormalities early and advises the driver to take the vehicle in for repair or servicing.
Daytime running lamps and the turning signal in the top make them more visible to pedestrians while the headlights are located under the ends of the bumper to prevent blinding oncoming vehicles and pedestrians.
The center console houses two portable batteries which can be used outside of the car to support the active lifestyles.
The MITSUBISHI eX Concept has an augmented reality(AR) windshield in the front as well as the Intelligent Display giving various driving information which is located in the center of instrument housing.
Information pulled from connected car technology is displayed on the AR windshield. It allows drivers to view changes in road conditions without having to make major movements of their line of sight. The kind of information that can be displayed includes:
- Route guidance from the car navigation system.
- Vehicle-to-vehicle distance alerts.
- Lane departure warnings.
- Information on fixed or movable traffic signs acquired by the camera-based road sign recognition system.
- Caution Tracking – driver assistance technology using vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-road and vehicle-to-pedestrian communications to display guidance and warnings on information outside the driver’s field of view, such as vehicles or pedestrians approaching intersections but hidden from the driver.
- Warnings for the driver to make split-second decisions and vehicle operations, the AR windshield supports safer driving.
Located in the upper part of the instrument housing, the Intelligent Display show portal to a whole range of driving information such as smartphone, route guidance. Search information from a smartphone or PC is shared with AI via the Cloud and the car will display the driver’s requested internet search information via the Cloud. The AI function of the Intelligent Display will make recommendations based on understanding of the driver’s interests and hobbies.
Side View Monitors are located on either side of the main instrument housing. Replacing traditional door mirrors, they use high-definition cameras fitted to the car body to display the rearward field of view and so reduce the amount of eye movement the driver has to make.
Rear View Monitor
The rear view mirror is replaced by a rear view monitor mounted in the overhead console with video from a high-definition camera fitted to the rear of the car to display the view behind the car. It provides a wider and clearer image of the view behind the car than a conventional rearview mirror.
The next-generation EV system employs a high-capacity and high-performance battery together with compact high-output electric motors making it lighter and more efficient. With further weight reductions in the vehicle itself, it can provide a range 248.54 miles.
Installing the drive battery beneath the body has lowered the center of gravity and together with its Twin Motor 4WD and S-AWC integrated vehicle dynamics control systems helps it provide handling control that reflects driver inputs as well as outstanding vehicle stability. The Mitsubishi c eX Concept is a next-generation SUV which Mitsubishi claims a step ahead of the current EVs.
