eK Active

Launched in October 2001 to a "New standard for K-car" banner, the eK Wagon was later joined by the eK Sport in September 2002 and by the chic and modern eK Classy in May 2003 as derivative models were added to the lineup to cater to differing user demands. By February 2004 the eK series had chalked up cumulative sales of 300,000 units with average monthly sales hitting 10,000 units, to make it one of Mitsubishi Motors' all-time hit products. The forth model in the series, the SUV-taste eK Active was launched in May 2004 to enjoy a unique existence as the only K-crossover SUV on the market. The exterior was distinguished by more ground clearance, oversize bumpers, skid plate-look garnish, 14-inch wheels and built-in roof rails. These features gave the eK Active all-terrain performance that took poor surfaces on country roads or bumps on city streets in its stride. The eK Active's elevated seat squab height made for easier and more natural access as well as giving a higher eye point for improved forward visibility and drivability. The convenience specification included, as dealer options, a waterproof luggage box for storing wet winter and marine sport clothing and equipment as well as seatback cords for retaining small items. This was a K-car that delivered fun motoring whatever the situation.
