Mitsubishi Delica Mini: Why doesn't Europe learn from Japan?

Mitsubishi Delica Mini

Mobility in large European cities is increasingly complicated. Anti-emission regulations are increasingly restrictive and the economic situation of families is not ready for the purchase of electric vehicles. This situation forces us to look for solutions that are less curious, but the saddest thing of all is that there are options that have been presented as very valid and nobody pays any attention to them. He Mitsubishi Delica Mini It's one of them. Doesn't it ring a bell...?

We have already told you about the Mitsubishi Delica Mini but surely you have not noticed it. It is a vehicle that falls within the kei car segment, one of the best-known segments in the Japanese market. You can ignore that these types of vehicles exist but not that they are a true reference when it comes to moving around the cities of your country. And if we know this, we ask why we don't bring the idea to Europe and use it? because we are stupid...

The power of the Mitsubishi Delica Mini ranges from 52 CV for the basic one and 64 CV for the most powerful…

Yes, because we are stupid and there is no other explanation. Knowing that We need vehicles that pollute little and that move like a fish in water through large citiesWhy don't we take advantage of the benefits of this niche. Well, we don't know why brands don't exploit them, but surely there is a very powerful one. Customers are sovereign and in our mentality the fact of having a vehicle of contained size with the right power does not fit.

So the Mitsubishi Delica Mini measures 3,39 meters long, 1,47 meters wide and 1,83 meters high. And the wheelbase reaches 2,49 meters, being key to offering a very generous cabin. As a curious fact to keep in mind, in the version with all-wheel drive AWD there are special shock absorbers that lift it off the ground a little more. Therefore, we are facing a kei evolution of the Delica D:5 which is bigger and more habitable…

Depending on the version chosen, the Delica Mini can have 14 or 15-inch alloy wheels. Yes, because the mechanical range consists of a gasoline block of 660 cubic centimeters with two powers: 52 CV and 60 Nm of torque or 64 CV and 100 Nm of torque. In both cases the transmission is automatic CVT type and traction can be FWD or AWD. In addition, the fuel tank is 27 liters and its weight ranges between 970 and 1.060 kilos.

It may be that its power is fair but not its endowment. Thus, the Delica Mini has Grip Control, LED optics with adaptive function, Hill Descent or lane keeping assist and even sign recognition. And there is more because behind closed doors it boasts waterproof and stain resistant fabric upholstery. The penalty is not being accepted in Europe, because if it were like that congestion in large cities would be less. Sad…
