Mitsubishi eK Wagon & eK Custom launched in Japan

Mitsubishi has released new details about their eK Wagon and eK Custom.

Jointly developed with Nissan, the new eK variants are more stylish than their predecessor as they adopt flowing lines and gently curved surfaces. While the two cars are virtually identical, the eK Custom is distinguished by an aggressive front fascia with a larger grille and slender headlights.

The interior is a little spartan but features a three-spoke steering wheel, metallic accents, a sliding rear seat and numerous storage compartments. Options include a push button ignition, a rear-view camera and an infotainment system with GPS navigation.

Power is provided by a three-cylinder engine that develops 49 HP (36 kW) and up to 59 Nm (43 lb-ft) of torque. There's also a turbocharged variant that cranks out 64 PS (47 kW) and 98 Nm (70 lb-ft) of torque. Regardless of which engine is selected both are connected to a continuously variable transmission that can be paired to an optional all-wheel drive system.

Both models are currently on sale in Japan and pricing starts at ¥1,050,000 for the eK Wagon and ¥1,269,000 for the eK Custom.
