Mitsubishi looks to have an interesting lineup for the 2023 Japan Mobility Show as it has teased a concept car that might preview the next-generation Mitsubishi Delica.
The car in question does not have a name, only being called ‘concept car’ for the time being as it has been teased in a single image showing off its high-riding off-road capabilities in what appears to be an MPV-shaped package thanks to its boxy looks. The rear window is part of a bigger design element, which we assume will be part of its massive tailgate.
Mitsubishi says the new concept car “combines the road handling of an SUV with the comfort and user-friendliness of an MPV.”
As you may have suspected, it is an electric vehicle that can send power to all four wheels individually. No interior images have been released, but we expect a spacious, futuristic cabin.
Aside from the concept car, the Japanese brand will also display the new generation Mitsubishi Triton, which debuted earlier in the year. The pickup truck now rides on a new chassis, has the next generation of its dynamic shield design language, and has a more powerful turbo diesel engine option.
Besides the other two models, Mitsubishi will also showcase its Last 1 Mile mobility concept, a small buggy. The concept buggy was developed with the Japanese start-up firm Lifehub Inc. It uses recycled batteries from used EVs and has been designed to allow “further adventures after the car reaches its destination.”
For now, we will keep our eyes peeled for more details about the “concept car” at the Japan Mobility Show, as Mitsubishi may have a surprise in store for us all. Who knows, instead of a concept, it might just be a quick preview of a vehicle that will enter production soon.
