Engelberg Tourer concept

Mitsubishi has unveiled a new 4WD plug in hybrid concept at the Geneva Motor Show. It uses the same twin motor PHEV system at the Outlander, though it has been improved with high efficiency motors. They are claiming around 43 miles of electric range, with an overall combined target of 435 miles. What do we think of the new design approach?

Size wise it seems quite big, enough to seat 5 very comfortably, almost like some luxury SUV's sold today. However it might be better to sell as a 7 seater, this way it acts as a cheaper version of the SUV's we all dream of owning some day.

Very impressed with how premium the cabin design is, a far cry from Mitsubishi's previous models. This will surely come at a price however, and that would quickly make this a niche product, which is fine. If it comes to market quickly enough, it could easily see the same success as the Outlander.

I had a chance to see renderings of an upcoming Lexus LX for 2020 and it also shares design elements seen here.

In a way that confirms what Mitsubishi, Lexus and other automakers will be focusing on in the years ahead.

Mitsubishi also dropped a fairly bizarre teaser trailer for this concept, which could preview some of its new tech. Looks like they are working on enabling the car to be a power source for homes and car to grid technology is going to become a big focus over the next few years.

I think we might be seeing a hydrogen powertrain in this next SUV from mitsubishi.
Toyota has been doubling down on hydrogen fuel cell systems and in the process proving they're superior to reducing our carbon footprint than battery-electric systems.
