    Being an electric vehicle, the all-new Mitsubishi Airtrek is fitted with a 70-kilowatt drive battery, that is said to have a maximum driving range of 520 kilometers. The placement of the battery in the center has helped the vehicle achieve an “ideal front-rear weight distribution with a low center of gravity.”

    “The motor, inverter, and reduction drive have been integrated into a single lightweight, compact unit, combined with a driving system that delivers high output and torque inside a lightweight, high-rigidity body. As a result, the all-new Airtrek delivers the powerful yet smooth ride characteristic of an EV, with nimble handling for a thoroughly exhilarating driving,” the company claimed.
