“We named the new electric SUV Airtrek so that many customers can enjoy adventurous, active driving with this pure EV, which achieves a maximum driving range of approximately 520 km while emitting zero CO2 in motion,” said Takao Kato, president and chief executive officer, MMC. “We hope the all-new Airtrek will help expand the horizons of customers in China, where environmental initiatives are accelerating with new energy vehicles, especially EVs.”

Lastly, the Airtrek is the result of a joint venture between Guangzhou Automobile Group Co., Ltd. (GAC) and Mitsubishi Corporation and MMC. As such, it’s unlikely that it will be offered in North America any time soon, if at all.
