Mitsubishi Motors 2018 Review

Miami Lakes Automall Mitsubishi-Crossovers

Mitsubishi Motors is getting back into the swing of things and has made many advancements to move forward in 2018. Much of this can be attested to new technology, not just for the industry but even a better world. In the beginning, much of what kept the automaker moving forward was the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance.

The Alliance

The Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance pulled Mitsubishi Motors back from the edge, and with the automaker, started a six-year plan to get the alliance ahead. The Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance is placing a lot of their focus on alternative fuel vehicles like hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and electric vehicles (EVs), but also have a large focus on developing autonomous vehicles or investing in companies with similar goals. This started with partnerships with robotaxi startups and investments Alliance Ventures, the alliance funding campaign. Alliance Ventures also made investments in overseas companies, like DiDi in China. This was all just the beginning, for new autonomous technology and alternative fuel vehicles will be coming from Mitsubishi Motors and the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance.

New Tech; New World

Not looking to fall behind anytime soon, Mitsubishi Motors has placed a large focus on autonomous technology for Mitsubishi. In conjunction with this, Mitsubishi is developing artificial intelligence for a new concept, the e-Evolution. Moreover, a new infotainment system by Mitsubishi, Mitsubishi Connect, has already popped up in the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, but a next generation version of Mitsubishi Connect will be available in the e-Evolution, with an artificially intelligent driving coach to improve driving performance. That’s not all Mitsubishi has achieved, though.

Wouldn’t clean energy be something? With a partnership between Mitsubishi Motors, ENGIE, and Hitachi Europe, we’re getting close. If anything, Mitsubishi Electric tested the clean energy system for the costs and savings a neutral-energy building may experience, with more good than bad results.

Several Achievements

Mitsubishi Motors has also had its time to shine this year. If it’s not their recognition from the Automotive Science Group with the ASG Award, then it’s how well Mitsubishi Motors vehicles do in safety. The 2018 Eclipse Cross received five stars from JNCAP. Most recently, Mitsubishi also developed a new Eclipse Cross concept to enter the 2019 Dakar Rally. The automaker has already won several times with the overseas Outlander, the Pajero.

New Vehicles and Things to Look Forward To

Throughout 2018, we’ve seen many concepts and heard lots of rumors about upcoming Mitsubishi vehicles. We know the automaker is focusing on alternative fuel and electric vehicles, but we’ve also seen a concept or two for the new Mitsubishi Lancer crossover. Mitsubishi Motors also has a new truck to enter the auto market – just not in the US for now.

Other things to look forward to for Mitsubishi Motors have to do with another partnership. Aside from the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance and aside from its partnership with ENGIE and Hitachi Europe for clean energy, Mitsubishi Motors has also signed a partnership with google. Consumers can expect Google Android-based infotainment systems also becoming a choice in future Mitsubishi Vehicles.

There is a lot of good things coming from Mitsubishi Motors and we’re almost at the end of 2018. What will 2019 bring? Find out by staying up to date with Miami Lakes Mitsubishi social media. Take a look at the above new Mitsubishi vehicles and more at Miami Lakes Automall.

With the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross having been on the streets for about a year now, the automaker decided to really test the new crossover by taking it to a different kind of terrain. Being the last in-house vehicle by Mitsubishi, the best way to remind consumers and auto enthusiasts what Mitsubishi Motors is capable of is to take the Eclipse Cross to a rally. For 2019, the first will be the Dakar Rally.

The Dakar Rally

The Dakar Rally has been running for 30 years, held and organized by the Amaury Sport Organisation. Held in various locations, the first rally was held in Paris, France, but for 2019, Peruvian fellows will get to see the rally live. They may have to drive a bit though, as the Dakar Rally isn’t like one’s average raceway or race track.

This is an off-road racing event, where off-road vehicles are tested for their endurance. Designed for more than off-road mods, a vehicle will need to be a true off-road vehicle, or built for off-roading from the get-go. With vehicles driving through dunes, mud, camel grass, rocks, and desert land, they’ll need to be able cross over 500 miles a day throughout the varying terrain.

Why the Eclipse Cross?

Two reasons. One – Mitsubishi has been racing the European Outlander, the Pajero, with Mitsubishi Evolution racing technology, for some time now. With this, the automaker has won the Dakar Rally twelve times. Now, to remind everyone how well Mitsubishi can race, they’re switching out the Pajero Evo with a new prototype for the Eclipse Cross – the Eclipse Cross T1.

Mitsubishi Motors has been making use of resources from their alliance with Renault-Nissan over the last year, but when it comes to pure Mitsubishi vehicles, the last of the line is the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. The pinnacle of technology for passenger comfort and entertainment, next to the environmental-friendly Outlander PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle), the Eclipse Cross is the classic sports car turned crossover. Although not engineered to win any drag races, the Eclipse Cross still comes with coupe-like style, Super All-Wheel Control for handling any terrain, and a number of features that keep the driver and passenger safe. Recently, the safety of the 2018 Eclipse Cross was put to the test in the land of the east and received a five-star safety rating.

Safety Features

If looking at the safety features of a car from Mitsubishi Motors, one would find a bit of a gap in advanced safety features over the last several years (pre-2018). Now, available safety features span across multiple models and trims. For instance, the Eclipse Cross comes with blind spot warning with rear cross traffic alert and lane change assist, forward collision mitigation, lane departure warning, and adaptive cruise control.
