Mitsubishi Previews New eK Space Kei Car
Described as an “enjoyable, spacious and satisfying” concept, the eK Space is Mitsubishi’s second kei car jointly-developed with Nissan after the eK Wagon/Custom lineup. Scheduled to be offered on the Japanese market only, the eK Space sports a box-like design and claims to offer “an increase in cabin volume with interior height that rivals the leaders in its class”.
Cabin features include a rear air circulator that “provides a comfortable interior atmosphere for the rear occupants”, a touch-operated electric sliding rear door, tinted rear windows, touch panel-operated air conditioning, and GPS navigation.
Engine details have yet to be revealed, but the eK Space is likely to be fitted with the same 49 HP and 64 HP three-cylinder units powering the eK Wagon and Custom. Sales of the eK Space are scheduled to commence early next year.
