Following the Tokyo Motor Show last October, the public expressed interest in the showing of the Mitsubishi eX concept. The concept was displayed as part of Mitsubishi’s continued efforts to introduce new crossovers to the company’s lineup following the success of the Outlander and Outlander Sport. Now, however, the eX crossover has been confirmed for production, and the concept is making its way into Mitsubishi’s lineup as a road-legal nameplate.
The eX concept will become an as-yet unnamed crossover aiming for a release date sometime in early 2018. Following the redesign of the Outlander and the Outlander Sport, which will make the Outlander slightly larger and the Outlander Sport slightly smaller, Mitsubishi will make room in their lineup for the eX production model, which will fall in between the two other crossovers.
Mitsubishi’s designer Tsunehiro Kunimoto aimed to make the Mitsubishi eX concept more rugged and utilitarian than other vehicles in the company’s lineup. Now that the company is changing direction, Kunimoto is aiming towards giving the brand a common, signature look, but he is still playing around with different styling cues.
