When space and land is limited and comes at a price, the only way to go is up, something we see happening all too frequent in housing (mainly outside of North America) and office buildings.
Japanese carmakers have been applying the same philosophy to their city-orientated vehicles dubbed ‘kei’ cars for years now, even though the only obvious benefits with a tall car are the airiness and sense of space in the cabin. Mitsubishi in partnership with Nissan are taking the concept to the next level with what they describe as “super height wagons”.
Mitsubishi’s version of the co-developed models is the ek Space that was officially revealed today in two flavors, base and Custom, ahead of their world premiere at the Tokyo Motor Show at the end of November.
Very few details were released about the eK Space and eK Space Custom, which feature different front ends and equipment options, with Mitsubishi stating that both come with a sliding rear door, UV-reducing glass that shuts out 99% of UV light, and touch panel-operated air conditioning.
