Mitsubishi Fuso eCanter Comes to New York City

Miami Lakes Auto Mitsubishi Fuso eCanter New York

With the auto market heading into alternative fuel and electric vehicles, there is a lot of competition brewing. Tesla is one of the top names in the game thus far, but they’re getting some strong competition. Notably from Cummins and Mercedes, but we’re willing to bet they weren’t expecting Mitsubishi Fuso to enter the game. From Daimler Trucks, owner or Mitsubishi Fuso electric trucks, comes the Mitsubishi Fuso eCanter.

It wasn’t that long ago that Mitsubishi Fuso announced the eCanter project. A fully electric commercial truck? How does that work? Well, unbeknownst to many consumers, electric motors are infamous for being able to generate a lot of torque. That lends a strong hand to vehicles that need to tow and haul around a lot of cargo. Ultimately, the plan was to develop a Class 4 truck capable of driving 100 miles with a towing capacity of at least 10,000 pounds, including the weight of the body and the load being hauled.

Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Highlights

Miami Lakes 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross

Now that Mitsubishi has officially added the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross to their changing lineup, many of us are awaiting more information and details. So far, Mitsubishi Motors only has a preview page highlighting a couple things that stand out. However, given what we do know about the vehicle, we think we can do better. Here are some of the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross highlights.

Power

New to Mitsubishi Motors is a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine with direct-injection. Not only does this bad boy go under the hood of the Eclipse Cross, but it was built in-house. In fact, the entire small SUV was built in-house, demonstrating Mitsubishi Motors’ ability to still design and produce fantastic vehicles despite their new deals with Nissan-Renault. Being a turbocharged engine with direct injection, expect more horsepower than seen on a Mitsubishi vehicle before. Plus, Mitsubishi’s Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT) is being integrated into the Cross and paired to the engine for great fuel economy.

Mitsubishi Making Changes to the Lineup

Miami Lakes Auto Mitsubishi- Lineup

With Mitsubishi making a lot of changes and bringing new vehicles to their lineup since the Mitsubishi and Nissan-Renault partnership started, there’s a lot of talk of what’s to come. Mitsubishi is leaning towards crossovers and SUVs these days, and recently they discontinued the all-electric i-Miev. But with the expansion of Mitsubishi Motors across the world and in the auto market, there are some changes we can see happening to the current lineup. Especially with the sharing of components between Mitsubishi and Nissan.

Sedans

The Mitsubishi Mirage and Mirage G4 are cornerstones for Mitsubishi Motors, known for their high fuel economy and sporty looks. The former comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but both models will most likely have it in the next model-year. For 2019, both models will be re-engineered and have a new powertrain option. Mitsubishi has always had low-power engines though, so we won’t see anything too grand – a 1.1-liter turbocharged engine is the current pick.

While Mitsubishi Motors rolls out new cars, having officially added the Eclipse Cross to their lineup, we eagerly wait on more details. In the meantime, we’ve been digging around the interwebs for interesting tidbits on Mitsubishi technology and design. Not too long ago, we found a Mitsubishi L200 truck turned into a desert warrior by TopGear. Today, we bring forward a Mitsubishi Starion turned into a high performance vehicle.

Mitsubishi Starion

Believe it or not, Mitsubishi Motors did take a stab at the sports car corner of the auto market a little over 30 years ago. There was the Mitsubishi Lancer and the Mitsubishi Eclipse, now turned into the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross with cool technology, and then there was a hatchback sports car known as the Mitsubishi Starion. Known for several firsts in their history, Mitsubishi produced the first turbocharged performance automobile with electronic fuel injection. The model didn’t last very long however, in production for seven years, and was actually followed by the original Eclipse.
