Mitsubishi and the European Design Center (IED) in Torino, Italy have collaborated on an all-electric concept car that showcases the future crossover from Mitsubishi. The concept, named Moonstone, was created by 17 students from IED's Master Course in Transportation Design. Out of the 17 proposals, Mitsubishi selected this design as the final one. Moonstone combines striking lines, all-wheel drive, and a blend of performance and fun.
The concept car boasts cutting-edge technology and is designed to traverse rough terrain while remaining efficient and environmentally friendly. It measures 183.4 inches in length, 78.7 inches in width, 66.1 inches in height, and has a wheelbase of 106.3 inches. Inside, the minimalist space reveals a small instrument cluster, three driver-oriented switches, and a hexagonal dial. The absence of a center tunnel and A-pillars creates a continuous glass surface between the side windows and windshield.
Mitsubishi may utilize the design of this concept vehicle to influence its upcoming series of electric vehicles planned for the next five years. Currently, Mitsubishi has no fully electric vehicles available for sale in the United States, and only a few zero-emissions models in Asia. The collaboration with IED has resulted in an intriguing concept that holds promise for Mitsubishi's future endeavors in the electric vehicle market.
