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 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.
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.
