About Mitsubishi New Delica Mini Advanced Safety Equipment e-Assist
The preventive safety technology “e-Assist” is applicable to “wide” of “safety support car S (commonly known as support car S)”.
Automatic high beam (AHB)The forward detection camera detects the lights of preceding and oncoming vehicles, as well as the brightness around the road. By increasing the frequency of driving with high beams, it supports safe driving such as early detection of pedestrians.
Collision Mitigation Braking System (FCM)The front camera detects vehicles and pedestrians ahead. When the possibility of a collision increases, a warning message is displayed on the meter display and a buzzer prompts the driver to take evasive action. In the unlikely event that the driver is unable to slow down safely, the system automatically activates emergency braking to avoid a collision or reduce damage and injury in the event of a collision.
Lane Departure Warning System (LDW)If the vehicle is likely to unintentionally deviate from the driving lane, a warning display on the meter display and a buzzer will alert the driver.
Lane Departure Prevention Support (LDP) A force is generated briefly in the direction to bring the car back into the lane, prompting the driver to move the car back into the lane.
Collision Prevention Assist for Pedal Misapplication If there is an obstacle such as a wall in the direction of travel while driving at low speed, such as when parking, the brake operation may be delayed and the driver may perceive the danger of colliding with the obstacle, or may accidentally depress the accelerator pedal for the brake pedal. The driver is warned by the display and buzzer in the meter when the By controlling engine output and braking, it helps prevent collisions with obstacles and excessive acceleration.

Monotonous “traffic jam driving” and long “cruising driving” on the highway. Operates when driving on a highway (approximately 0km/h to 100km/h). In these two scenes, the car supports accelerator, brake, and steering operations. Reduces the burden on the driver during high-speed driving.
stop signal In order to reduce the possibility of a rear-end collision with a following vehicle when the brakes are applied suddenly, the brake lights flash to notify the rear of the vehicle of the sudden braking.
Multi-around monitor front & back sonar Sonar detects obstacles and notifies you with a buzzer sound. You can intuitively grasp the surrounding situation as if you were looking down on the car from directly above, and you can park with confidence.

Is there a new Mitsubishi Delica Mini?
Is there a “Delica Mini” while there is an “eK Cross Space”? Of course, the question remains,By positioning Mitsubishi as a compact version of the “Delica D: 5”, which has the highest sales power and product appeal, the “Delica Mini” will become a unique demand.Of course, rival models include Honda “N-BOX” and Suzuki “Spacia”. In particular, “Spacia” has a lineup of many derivatives, and in the coming era of diversification, such as “Spacia”, “Spacia Custom”, “Spacia Gear”, and “Spacia Base”, the line-up of derivative models will lead to strengthening of sales power. It seems possible.
