Mitsubishi North America Releases New Work-From-Home Policy

Back in 2020, the world changed, possibly forever with the Covid-19 pandemic. Affecting people and businesses world-wide, many industries were hit hard, the auto industry included. It affected sales and resources, with the semi-conductor chip shortage that followed in 2021. People’s lives were affected as well, whether it was their health or the health of loved ones, but it also changed the daily grind for a lot of people. With the Coronavirus spreading, facilities were temporarily shutting down, many businesses went bankrupt, and companies that were still afloat sent their workers home. Remote work is quickly becoming the norm with the virus still making rounds across the globe, and honestly, most people can do their job from home these days. Mitsubishi Motors clearly knows this, and Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) recently announced a new work-from-home policy for its corporate workers.

“Our new work from home policy comes down to one thing: tremendous trust in our employee team…Over the last two years, our employees have risen to the challenges of a global pandemic and historic supply chain disruptions, and they’ve propelled the brand to record-breaking sales success. They’ve demonstrated they can do it all, while working from their home and company offices. That commitment should be rewarded with confidence and flexibility, and today, that’s what we’re doing.” – MMNA CEO Mark Chaffin

Anyone working on a computer right now knows this is the way to go. Why spend eight hours in a stuffy office that feels more like a fishbowl when you can spend a fraction of the time working at home? Not only that, many people have voiced how much their production and well-being has been affected by working from home. Many businesses are pressuring employees to return for the office to improve “morale” – more like a micromanaging power move – and it was the spark that lit the match on “The Great Resignation”. People are quitting their jobs after realizing how much the daily grind affects their lives, their health, and how the pay rate simply isn’t enough to make one’s well-being a second-priority. It never should be.

Highlights of the 2023 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross

Mitsubishi Motors has been changing things up as of late, and we’re all looking forward to what Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance has planned. The Alliance shared a new business plan Alliance 2030 to shine some light on the next few years of electric vehicle (EV) technology and connected mobility, whereas Mitsubishi Motors’ current business strategy seems to be releasing new generations of models already in the lineup before it reveals something new. The last vehicle getting a next-generation model was the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, but it seems the Eclipse Cross will beat it to the punch. Check out the highlights for the 2023 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

Power

Across the entire lineup of this model, a 1.5-liter direct-injection turbo engine makes up the power. Able to generate up to 152 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque, this crossover may not win any drag races, but it does share some equipment with vehicles that race in the World Rally Championship and in the desert dunes of Dakar. The new 2023 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is equipped with Mitsubishi’s Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) all-wheel drive system, a combination of Adaptive Stability Control (ASC), Anti-lock Brakes (ABS), and Active Yaw Control (AYC) to distribute driving torque to the rear wheels and provide driver control in various types of terrain.

Have You Heard of the Surprising Mitsubishi Minicab MiEV?

The Mitsubishi i-Miev has a hard life in the North American market. Although named the “Best Value Electric Vehicle Passenger Car in America” by Vincentric in 2017, Mitsubishi Motors pulled the electric vehicle (EV) from the U.S. The i-Miev was a big deal, however, known as the first highway-capable EV to ever be released. Of course, it is no longer the only EV capable of high speeds and leaving city roads behind. Overseas, Mitsubishi Motors hasn’t given up, and if anything, has improved the i-Miev over the years, going from a super small vehicle akin to the now discontinued Smart Cars to a compact van. Surprisingly, this mini-mini van is turning heads, and it’s not just because this EV isn’t available in America.

Our story today comes from Chris and Sarah Jensen, owners of a seven-year-old Mitsubishi Minicab MiEV. While driving down Coronation Drive in Brisbane, Chris received a lot of questions from tradespeople in passing, many of which were interested in the vehicle’s capabilities. A new Mitsubishi Minicab MiEV can offer about 100 miles of emissions-free travel on a single charge, but the minicab in question is a bit old, offering about 75 miles of electric range. That’s still a lot of breathing room, and much more than the average daily commute – assuming your company has adopted the “back to work” culture. Like many EVs and battery-electric vehicles (BEVs), the Mitsubishi Minicab MiEV can also charge overnight.
