miami-lakes-mitsubishi-engelberg-tourer-concept

When an automaker hits a global milestone, it has something to celebrate. In 2019, Mitsubishi Motors has 200,000 reasons to celebrate, with its plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, achieving a key milestone. Based on the latest sales data from Mitsubishi, there have been 200,000 units of the Outlander PHEV sold worldwide since its launch in 2013. This can only mean great things for the automaker going forward, not only with their involvement with the Renault-Nissan Alliance to increase sales, but also future Mitsubishi concepts, like the Engelberg Tourer.

Taking Plug-in Hybrids by Storm

At the end of 2017, the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance discussed the production of a cross-platform electric vehicle to be shared between the three automakers. Much of this decision came from the success of the Nissan Leaf electric car, having sold over 300,000 units since its 2010 release, and continuing to sell over 40,000 each year. In the Autumn of 2018, Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance saw a total sales increase of 5.1-percent in the European auto market, putting the alliance at a grand total of 5,538,530 vehicles in the first half of the year. Most of those sales came from crossovers, SUVs, zero-emission EVs, and especially PHEVs.

The Safe and Luxurious Mitsubishi Outlander

miami-lakes-mitsubishi-outlander-luxury

With the ever-growing race of the auto market, automakers are consistently trying to find ways to give consumers a little bit of everything. The industry went from sedans to SUVs and then gave birth to crossovers. Alternative fuel entered with the hybrid, and then Tesla came along with an all-electric car, eventually giving birth to the middle-ground plug-in hybrid industry. Automakers are also looking for ways to make practical and functional cars that can also offer a sense of class. The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander is one SUV that manages to make it work.

Looking for a Little Luxury?

The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander offers class inside-and-out, especially when we’re dealing with the top-tier trim, the Outlander GT. Riding on a Super All-Wheel Control drivetrain, designed by Mitsubishi Motors to handle all types of terrain and driving conditions, drivers behind the wheel will always have a sense of control with this SUV. Automatic on/off headlights with LED high and low beams also always light the way, and Mitsubishi Motors signature Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) auto body construction helps to offer a sense of security at all times of the day.

When it comes to that upscale feeling, the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander GT offers leather upholstery, soft-touch surfaces around the center console, and a leather and heated steering wheel. Heated front seats also help with cold nights, whilst a dual-zone automatic climate control system can help to keep the driver and front-passenger happy throughout any road trip. If curious about the level of entertainment, Mitsubishi also has that covered.

Although still working on their own brand of infotainment, Mitsubishi Motors may soon be fully-packed with the Google Android Operating System through a deal between Google and the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance. For the 2019 model, consumers can find an array of technology to make every drive easy and entertaining along the way. A seven-inch touchscreen is standard for all trims, but the GT trim also comes with a smartphone link display system that offers Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. Consumers can listen to their own tunes through the available Premium Rockford Fosgate premium audio system, outfitted with nine speakers and a 10-inch dual voice coil subwoofer.

While providing all of these great features, the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander GT is also a safe and reliable vehicle. GT owners with the Multi-View Camera System get multiple camera views that provide help with driving and parking, and automatic safety features help drivers get around safely. These include adaptive cruise control that uses radar technology to help maintain a safe driving distance from other vehicles, rear cross traffic alert detects any vehicle heading towards the Outlander from either side, and blind spot warning and lane change assist that work to help keep a driver safe when changing lanes intentionally or unintentionally.

To top it off, Mitsubishi Motors is leading the auto industry in terms of car warranties. Mitsubishi Motors offers an amazing as the 10-year/100,000 powertrain limited warranty with road assistance for a full five years. The automaker also provides a 5 years/60,000 miles vehicle Limited Warranty and 7 years/100,000 miles Anti-Corrosion Perforation Limited Warranty.

The 2019 Geneva International Motor Show brought us a lot of great concepts, and although a month ago, some vehicles are still be talked about as the details start to sink in. Largely taking the spotlight at Geneva were hybrid and electric vehicles. Nearly every automaker had one to display, and that meant an automaker had to do really stand out to get some deserved attention. Mitsubishi Motors achieved this by not just bringing a new plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) concept to the show, but brought a PHEV that could boast high-performance, off-road action, and even came with its own house. Whether the concept becomes a reality is another story.

Taking a look at the Engelberg Tourer, and it screams rugged. The design is sharp and could pass for a luxury SUV in the right light. The box on the roof for extra cargo, shaped like a snowboard, gives way to a well-known ski resort in Switzerland, what the concept is named after. Made for active lifestyles, the Engelberg Tourer could be well suited for winter seasons, and for those who like to go off-road year-round, the Engelberg Tourer is known as a Twin-Motor 4WD plug-in hybrid system.

Mitsubishi Motors is quickly becoming a hot automaker to watch as they constantly release new exciting technology, like the autonomous features at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show, and the Dendo Drive House at 2019 Geneva International Motor Show. During the Geneva Motor Show, the new plug-in hybrid Engelberg Tourer by Mitsubishi also debuted, the newest vehicle that may soon be added to the lineup. With Mitsubishi Motors needing to make room for new vehicles, the automaker is also making sure that its icon cars are still in the race, such as adding new safety tech to the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.

New Safety in the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport

That’s right, the sporty sibling of the Mitsubishi Outlander is finally getting its dues with some upgraded tech. Currently, the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport comes with an assortment of standard safety features, including an anti-lock braking system (ABS), traction and stability control systems, a total of seven airbags around the cabin (including the driver’s knee airbag and advanced dual-stage STS front airbags), three-point seatbelts and head restraints, a LATCH child seat anchor system, an anti-theft alarm system, and engine immobilizer. Also constructed along the Mitsubishi Motors Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) design, their vehicles are made to protect all passengers in an auto incident.

Some advanced safety features have turned up in recent years, such as forward collision mitigation, lane departure warning, and automatic high beam headlights. Going forward, Mitsubishi Motors has also added Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Lane Change Assist as available advanced safety option to the Outlander Sport lineup. Together, all of these work to give the driver a sense of all directions, even without the available multi-view camera, standard on the GT trim.
