Mitsubishi Auctions Off Lancer EVO VI TME Before Leaving UK Market

miami-lakes-mitsubishi-lancer-evo-tommi-makinen-edition

The last Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Tommi Makinen Edition was just sold at an auction in Europe for £100,100. In terms of USD, that’s just under $121,000. It sounds a little absurd that someone would pay over $100,000 for an old sports sedan, but then again, back in 2016, someone spent $76,400 on a Mitsubishi-joint-eBay auction for the last Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition. This one was also for the children, with all proceeds going to charity (Feeding America and Second Harvest Food Bank). We’re not sure if the same outcome happened this time around, but it’s a historic moment all the same. Not only did the Lancer EVO VI Tommi Makinen Edition (TME) set a record for the most expensive Mitsubishi ever sold at an auction, but it also marks the departure of Mitsubishi Motors from the UK market.

Wow, that’s a big one. Back in May 2020, the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance shared a new business strategy, along with previews at new and upcoming technology and concepts, with Mitsubishi Motors set as the first automaker in the bunch to release a new vehicle. Since then, we haven’t seen much aside from a Mitsubishi and Nissan mini electric vehicle project and the Mitsubishi Airtek concept, debuted at the 2021 Shanghai Auto Show. Each automaker in the Alliance will also be setting its sights on different regions to drive sales and pulling out of the UK market might be a part of this new strategy if Mitsubishi doesn’t fare well in parts of Europe.

A Second Look at the Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer Concept

miami-lakes-mitsubishi-engelberg-tourer-2

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.
