Mitsubishi XM Concept – Thai Motor Expo Live

Aravind

Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.

Following its debut at the 2016 GIIAS in Indonesia last August, Mitsubishi is showcasing the XM crossover concept at the 2016 Thai Motor Expo today. It is Mitsubishi’s rendition of a 7-seat crossover that will rival the Honda BR-V when it goes on sale in Indonesia next year. A launch in Thailand is also on the cards.

The XM will be produced at the company’s new plant in Indonesia, for which a total investment of 600 million USD was made. The Indonesian plant will be XM’s production hub, from where it would be exported to ASEAN markets like Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam and others. The XM is perceived as a direct rival to the Suzuki Ertiga as well.

Being a design study at this moment, concrete details on the production-spec model have not been released. Designers have summarized the styling as combining the ”toughness of an SUV with the versatility of an MPV” with a stylish floating roof and Mitsubishi Motors’ Dynamic Shield front design.

As for the interior, the crossover MPV will offer 7-seats as an option, and features a wide body and an optimized interior layout that will ensure class-leading interior space for seven occupants. Mitsubishi says that the horizontal dashboard “accentuates the breadth of an MPV” and “together with the wide elevated center console, black/white high-contrast interior coloring, and silver accents the interior reflects a refined look.”
