The XM name is derived from the functionality of a crossover and the cabin space of a MPV. Mitsubishi also stated that the XM concept is wider than most MPVs to provide better interior space for all seven occupants. As for its crossover half, the concept is seen to have higher ride height compared to other MPVs.

In terms of design, the front fascia is dominated by Mitsubishi’s Dynamic Shield Design, along with aggressive headlights, black grill and large foglights. The rear, on the other hand features L-shaped LED taillights, a distinct tailgate and a roof-mounted spoiler.

Mitsubishi did not reveal its powertrain but they did say that it has generous ground clearance and underguard protection. This will allow the XM concept to tackle unpaved roads and the harsh elements added Mitsubishi.

The production version of the XM concept is expected to arrive sometime in late 2017.
