Mitsubishi Motors has had some surprising announcements this year. Possibly their most talked about debut would be the Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show, alongside its Dendo Drive House (DDH) proposition. All of this good news could possibly be overshadowing their most recent addition to the automotive lineup, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. This vehicle has also had some good news as of late, such as earning a Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is also known for its upgraded technology, such as a Mitsubishi Connect Telematics System with Safeguard, able to work with a recent smartphone app released by Mitsubishi, Road Assist+. With all these additions, Mitsubishi Motors continues to win awards for the Eclipse Cross overseas.

It took Mitsubishi Motors some time to break into the North American automotive market. Looking back at 100 years of Mitsubishi Motors, and it wasn’t until the 1980s that they joined the party. So of course, back in their homeland of Japan, there’s plenty of recognition for the last in-house vehicle, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. One group in particular, holds an event every year, the Automotive Researchers’ & Journalists’ Conference of Japan (RJC), and for the second consecutive year, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross was also named the “RJC Car of the Year” for 2019.

Although some may find it surprising, Mitsubishi Motors has been receiving a lot of praise recently from select publications and organizations. Most recently, Mitsubishi received some good words from the Automotive Science Group (ASG). Having recently concluded several assessments pertaining to vehicles that excel in three key areas in the automotive industry: environmental, social, and economic performance, we can already guess what some of the good news entails. With the auto market starting to shift towards an industry dominated by SUVs and crossovers, alternative fuel is also making a place for itself. Thus, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV and Mitsubishi Mirage both received awards for their current standing in the automotive world.

What Is the Automotive Science Group and Why Should I Care?

Established in 2007, the the Automotive Science Group was created to support Eco-innovations’ mission of addressing environmental challenges with market-based solutions that prompt informed consumer action. By informing consumer choice by enhancing product and technology comparison capabilities to better serve the environment, consumers can make informed decisions that are not only in their best economic interest, but also in the best interest of our environment.

With the conclusion of their recent Automotive Performance Index study, the ASG assessed 823 model year 2018 crossovers, SUVs, and minivans in North America, eight of which are made with plug-in hybrid or electric capabilities. The SUV segment was comprised of 372 models (including trim variants). Alternative fuel vehicles were of course considered out of the 823 models for their overall environmental impact as well as consumer benefits.
