In China, the Mitsubishi Airtrek 2022 was unveiled. The Mitsubishi Airtrek is the company's first electric SUV, and it's only available in China.
Last week, the Mitsubishi Airtrek 2022 was introduced at the Guangzhou Motor Show. It was developed as part of a joint venture between Mitsubishi and GAC, a local corporation.
The 2022 Mitsubishi Airtrek is essentially a restyled and rebadged version of the GAC Aion V. With dimensions of 4630mm long, 1920mm wide, 1728mm high, and a wheelbase of 2830mm, the Airtrek falls between the Eclipse Cross and the Outlander in terms of size. So these numbers put the Airtrek in the same segment as Toyota RAV4 or Hyundai Tucson.
The style is inspired by other Mitsubishi cars, including the Dynamic Shield fascia up front, while the proportions and surface are still based on the GAC model.
On the interior, the dashboard has a big 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen as well as a completely digital instrument cluster. There's also a leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel.
A 135kW electric motor is combined with a 70kWh lithium-ion battery to provide power. In China's CLTC test cycle, the driving range is 520 kilometers. A low-mounted battery and a 50:50 weight distribution help with driving dynamics.
Level 2 semi-autonomous driving is available on the Airtrek, which uses nine radars and cameras to accelerate, brake, and center the car inside its lane.
In early 2022, the Mitsubishi Airtrek electric SUV would be available solely in China. The price is estimated to start at 233,800 Chinese yuan, or about $AU50,000.
