Mitsubishi Vision Ralliart Might Get the Greenlight by 2024
Mitsubishi Motors has been going back-and-forth with its new introduction of Ralliart ever since the automaker revived the name in 2021. Placing a stronger focus on battery-electric vehicles (BEVs), as described by the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance business strategy for 2030 (Alliance 2030), bringing back the group responsible for the high-performance Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution and cancelled Mitsubishi Starion 4WD. When releasing the 2023 lineup, Mitsubishi Motors announced Ralliart-inspired models for the Mitsubishi Outlander, Outlander Sport, Eclipse Cross, and the Mirage. The Mirage Ralliart Edition is the first to get a release date, but another Ralliart model previewed in Tokyo might be dropping as soon as 2024.
It would seem that the next-generation of the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross PHEV as the new flagship of the Japanese automaker was just a red herring. Straight from the land of the red Sun, reports say that Mitsubishi has plans to morph the Vision Ralliart Concept into a production model based around the Outlander PHEV model. Even if the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is still the number one leading plug-in hybrid SUV in the world, sales in North America have dropped, and sales for the Eclipse Cross continue to ride. It’s time for something fresh, and the Vision Ralliart concept blends itself with Ralliart DNA, bringing “elevated acceleration, cornering, and braking in all road and weather conditions”. It could even bring back the “Evolution” nameplate.Read the rest of this entry

Mitsubishi Motors has been selling in the States since 1982. The automaker has been in business for over 100 years, but when it comes to the states, it’s been a little over 40 years. In fact, the real 40-year anniversary was back in 2021/2022. Mitsubishi Motors North America (MMNA) decided to celebrate with a new generation of the Mitsubishi Outlander SUV for the 2022 model year (skipping 2021), and then introducing a new and revised Outlander plug-in hybrid (PHEV) for the 2023 model year. Well, isn’t done celebrating its time here in the U.S., because in 2023, a new special edition 40th Anniversary model is being released for the Outlander and Outlander PHEV.

2023 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Named SUV of the Year by Puros Autos
Mitsubishi Motors has been set on pumping up its lineup of SUVs over the last few years, especially when it comes to their sole plug-in hybrid entry into the North American market. The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV was well-received when it first hit the states, and although sales have dwindled, with many more sales for every other model in the lineup, the automaker still receives a lot of popularity from one demographic. Year-after-year, Mitsubishi can owe popularity for the Outlander and Outlander PHEV to Hispanic consumers, currently making a three-to-one ratio of the consumer base. The PHEV variant was even named SUV of the Year by Puros Autos during the publication’s “2023 Car of the Year with a Latin Flavor” awards.
“We are honored to receive the coveted 2023 Car of the Year with a Latin Flavor award for the SUV category from Puros Autos for the second year in a row…With room for the whole family across three rows of seats, electric motoring for up to 38 miles with the added convenience of a gasoline engine, and a bold style that sets it apart from anything else on the road, the Outlander PHEV is the flagship of Mitsubishi Motors.” – Mark Chaffin, Mitsubishi Motors North America (MMNA) President and CEORead the rest of this entry
Mitsubishi Electric at the 2023 Consumer Electronics Show
Last year, Mitsubishi Electric announced that it would be going with the theme “Smart Society” for the 2023 Consumer Electronics Show. Every year there seems to be some overarching theme, usually surrounding mobility or futuristic technology. Last year, robotics, the metaverse, and visions of what an inter-connected city dominated the show. Mitsubishi Electric was even going so far as to change industry infrastructure to include artificial intelligence (AI) and robotic companions to do jobs that may be too difficult or dangerous for a human, or even perform repairs remotely if the technician can’t be present to do them. This year, the corporation wants to present its future vision to provide technologies and solutions for five challenge areas: Carbon neutral, Circular economy, Safety/Security, Inclusion, and Well-being.
“We develop a wide range of offerings across industries such as power, transportation, home appliances, infrastructure, manufacturing, IT/communications and others, all of which are vital contributors to growing a smart society…That puts us in a unique position to gather data-driven, cross-industry business insights that can improve our offerings and support the interconnection of people-centric technology and systems that are hallmarks of a truly sustainable smart society.” – Mike Corbo, President and CEO at Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc.Read the rest of this entry
A Review of Mitsubishi Motors Success and Awards in 2022
Over the last several years, Mitsubishi Motors has been a part of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, and although the automaker is supposed to lead the Alliance as the first to release a new model in a specific region, we have yet to see anything come from the sharing of resources with Renault-Nissan. Mitsubishi seems more focused on sprucing up its existing lineup with new generation models, like the next-generation of the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport , and adding special Mitsubishi Ralliart editions. One reason could be because of the great acclaim Mitsubishi does receive from consumers and automotive journalists time and again. 2022 was quiet, but the Alliance 2030 promises a lot of good things in the near future.
Knowing consumer loyalty like no other, the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander was voted as the SUV of the Year by Puros Autos during their “Latin Flavor Cars of the Year 2021” awards. The Hispanic market has known to be vital to Mitsubishi Motors success and sales, with one-out-of-every-four-cars purchased in the U.S. is by a Hispanic consumer. Not only this, the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander has the highest percentage of Hispanic buyers in the industry. Recognized by another Hispanic publication, the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander was also named Crossover Utility of the Year by the Hispanic Motor Press during their annual Hispanic Motor Press Awards.Read the rest of this entry
Mitsubishi Holds Onto Outlander PHEV as Flagship Model
Mitsubishi Motors has been very focused on its current lineup and sprucing up many of its SUV models. We received a next generation model for just about every model, such as the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander, Outlander Sport, Outlander PHEV, and the 2023 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. This focus on the models that also sell the most may have changed some opinions on introducing a new plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) as the star of the show. According to Mark Chaffin, Mitsubishi Motors North America (MMNA) president and CEO, the Outlander PHEV is still holding its title.
“Since its launch in March 2022, the gasoline version of the all-new Outlander has been a homerun, setting sales records monthly even in the face of global supply challenges…When sales begin in the U.S., the 2023 Outlander PHEV will take its place as the flagship of the Mitsubishi fleet. It is the most advanced and best-equipped vehicle we have ever sold, and it is the perfect blend of quiet and clean electric motoring with the range and ease of refueling of a gasoline-powered vehicle.”Read the rest of this entry
Mitsubishi Motors Wins Asia Cross Country Rally 2022 with Ralliart Tritons
Mitsubishi Motors has been testing the limits and the capabilities of its lineup in recent years. Although no one would think of Mitsubishi when they hear the word “off-road”, it may be a nameplate that comes to mind when someone says “rally cars”. The automaker started in America as a rally car racer, and the Lancer Evolution is still fresh in the minds of many rally drivers. Mitsubishi is even starting to design Ralliart editions of several models in its lineup, starting with the Mirage Ralliart Edition. Mitsubishi has also entered the Rebelle Rally in recent years, a 10-day, 2,000 km navigational course to test its might. Put the two experiences together, and we have the recent Asia Cross Country Rally 2022, which Mitsubishi entered with a Ralliart Triton.
What is the Triton? An overseas vehicle we have yet to see here in America, the Mitsubishi Triton is a pickup truck that the automaker could really do well with if they brought it stateside. However, with a focus on SUVs, even with the midsize pickup truck opening up, Mitsubishi is instead testing the waters of its sports car days with Ralliart editions of models currently in its lineup, and the Ralliart Triton is a good indication of what a Ralliart-infused model can do. The Mirage Ralliart Edition is mostly just racing stickers and a color scheme, but for the Asia Cross Country Rally 2022, Mitsubishi needs to do a little more to make the Triton rally race ready.Read the rest of this entry
What is the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance Working on Now?
The Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance announced big news in March 2022 with its revised Alliance 2030 plan. Back in May 2020, the Alliance revised their 2025 plans due to the Coronavirus pandemic and how it affected the auto industry and the economy. However, nothing has really happened. The Alliance seems to like to announce “big news” and then not say anything for a few years – we’re still waiting on the first new model to come from the Alliance by Mitsubishi Motors, and they’re mainly focused on the new Outlander PHEV, like winning 2023 Family Green Car of the Year by Green Journal. The closest we’ve seen is the XFC Concept Mitsubishi shared at the Vietnam Motor Show 2022. It seems promising, but what is the Alliance working on? Let’s recap.Read the rest of this entry

With so many recipes out there, it can be hard to choose, but we’ve picked a couple we know will blow people away. We’re going to get a little Asian cuisine going this year.
