Suv bound

Mitsubishi will bring five new Suvs to market in Europe and other regions by 2021.  It is an attempt to reposition itself as a brand specializing in 4X4’s.  With this news many fans are speculating that popular hatchback vehicles like the Mirage will come to the end around this time.

Each Suv’s will be in their different automotive section segments.  In order of size, smallest to biggest:

A small B-SUV (i.e. Juke/Captur sized), previewed by the yellow eX concept revealed at the 2015 Tokyo motor show and making its European debut at the 2016 Geneva show. Name still to be confirmed

A mid-sized SUV slightly larger than the ASX, and previewed by 2013’s XR-PHEV II concept. We’ll see the production version, rumored to be called the Outlander Sport, in 2017.  Replacement for the current Outlander, due in 2018

The Shogun Sport, a large SUV already on sale in Australian and Asian markets as the Pajero Sport, with a 2.4-liter diesel engine and eight-speed automatic gearbox and built on the same platform as the L200 pickup truck in Thailand. Overseas it’s a five-seater, but UK versions will seat seven.

The replacement full-size Shogun, likely to be the last of the quintet to reach production. Like the current Shogun, it will be built on an entirely different platform from the rest of Mitsubishi’s models.

If Mitsubishi’s going to become an SUV brand, where does that leave the small Mirage supermini?  Mitsubishi is developing a new mirage next year available as a pure EV.  This will give it an obvious link with Mitsubishi’s other goal of having more electric cars is future areas.

Mitsubishi Motors: The Masters of 4WD Innovation

Did you know that Mitsubishi engineers designed and built the very first production four wheel drive (4WD) vehicles in Japan 80 years ago? It’s no wonder Mitsubishi is widely known for their innovative engineering.

AWC is the brand name of a four-wheel drive system developed by Mitsubishi Motors. The system was first implemented in the 2001 Lancer Evolution VII. The 4WD drive technology is the glue that holds Mitsubishi together and has been aided in Mitsubishi’s longstanding motor sports activities and long history in rally racing spanning almost half a century. As a motorsports racing team, Mitsubishi Motors has won the grueling and unforgiving Dakar Rally which, as of the 2015 event, has been run 36 times – and Mitsubishi has been victorious in their category 12 times to date.
2012-Mitsubishi-Lancer-SE-awc-badgeAccording to Mitsubishi: “…AWC is a four-wheel dynamic control philosophy for maximally exploiting the capability of all four tires of a vehicle in a balanced manner to realize predictable handling and high marginal performance.”

Although the AWC was initially developed for the high performance Lancer Evolution full-time four-wheel drive models, the system is now incorporated in Mitsubishi’s other 4WD vehicles, each having its own distinct configuration.
