Mitsubishi has released a few more shots of its Concept-ZT, which will be shown at the Tokyo Auto Show in October. We've already applauded its exterior, hoping it is a close indication of the Galant. According to the Mitsu press release, the interior is supposed to evoke "a level of hospitality that would resonate with all the senses of the occupants." Materials-wise, the interior is a dimensional leap above anything Mitsubishi currently offers, and looks like a nice place to spend some time.
The Boeing airliner-inspired steering wheel is neat. However, the neary monochromatic, full-length dashboard readout seems like something off a nuclear sub (No, the new SSNs are actually way cooler than this - Ed.). The raised armrest console is a neat touch as well, but it has even more knobs and liquid crystal-looking displays. And it hovers above some sort of dilithium crystal accordion that would serve who knows what purpose, perhaps launching torpedoes. At the end of the day, it is still a concept, and the final product will undoubtedly look different, but it's a sign of a good direction for Mitsubishi design.
