Mitsubishi to Unveil New Electric Crossover at Tokyo Auto Show

A few years ago, the Mitsubishinew electric crossover - Coronet Mitsubishi - Peru, IL Outlander and Outlander Sport took the crossover segment by storm and revitalized Mitsubishi’s sales strategy. The brand decided to totally overhaul their lineup and introduce several new entries to the SUV and CUV segment over the coming years. One of these entries will include a new electric crossover. This monthOctober of 2017 Mitsubishi plans on finally unveiling this electric crossover at the upcoming Tokyo Auto Show.

The new crossover will go by the name of “e-Evolution,” a nod to the Lancer Evolution performance sedan that was finally retired recently after decades of being on the market. The e-Evolution concept reportedly will feature a “low-slung,” coupe-like design, as well as a powertrain that combines Mitsubishi’s sophisticated 4WD system with an electric motor. Additionally, Mitsubishi representatives hint, the e-Evolution will offer some kind of semi-autonomous driving feature, according to MotorAuthority.com Writer Viknesh Vijayenthiran.

The Tokyo Auto Show won’t be open for public viewing until Oct. 25, at which point we will have access to much more information about the new electric crossover from Mitsubishi. However, the e-Evolution as we know it may experience some changes from the auto show concept to the production line. In the meantime, try checking out any of Mitsubishi’s other great crossovers, such as the famous Outlander Sport, here at Coronet Mitsubishi.

Mitsubishi GT-PHEV Concept Hints at the Outlander’s Future

Mitsubishi GT-PHEV Concept

Mitsubishi hasn’t exactly kept quiet about the future of the Outlander, one of its most popular vehicles. The fast-selling crossover is bound to have an interesting future, especially with the reveal of the latest concept at the Paris Motor Show. The Mitsubishi GT-PHEV concept is the latest design to roll under the spotlights.

Mitsubishi already showed up two previous concepts of what the future of the Outlander could look like. The XR PHEV II at the Geneva Motor Show put an interesting spin on things. The EX concept took the stage at the Toyota Motor Show as well.

Now it’s the Mitsubishi GT-PHEV concept’s turn.

The crossover’s shiny grill leads into a sleek, flowing design characterized by chiseled lines that lead the eye along the sides of the vehicle. The GT-PHEV concept reportedly uses three electric motors and a conventional 2.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine. The manufacturer-supplied battery is capable of reaching 75 miles on electricity alone.

The latest concept boasts a whole host of advanced technologies as well. That technology includes navigational-planning systems as well as all-wheel drive control to optimize performance.

Only time will tell which concept Mitsubishi will choose for the future of the Outlander crossover.

We here at Coronet Mitsubishi can’t wait to see what becomes of the Mitsubishi GT-PHEV concept

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Breaks 100,000 Sales

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV hasn’t even hit American pavement yet, but it’s already red hot elsewhere in the world. It’s only the fourth plug-in electric car ever to break 100,000 sales.

Currently available in Europe and Japan, it had a reported 101,900 sales through this past March, and that number continues to climb. It falls only behind the Nissan Leaf, Tesla Model S, and the Chevrolet Volt in global plug-in sales.

But, what makes Mitsubishi an even higher competitor is that while the others reached their sales with the help of the American market, Mitsubishi’s Outlander PHEV isn’t even here yet. And until last year, the U.S. was the world’s largest market for plug-ins.

Once the Outlander PHEV gets here, we should see an even greater surge in its numbers. For now, the Outlander has been quite the success overseas, becoming the bestselling plug-in hybrid in Europe. Japan had 33,741 sales of the car, showing their push for environmental improvement.

A benefit of Mitsubishi’s cars is their affordability. While many other automakers plan or are already producing plug-in hybrids, few offer them as inexpensively as Mitsubishi does.

So, when the Outlander PHEV finally arrives, will you be ready to call it yours?

2016 Mitsubishi Outlander is an IIHS Top Safety Pick+

2016 Mitsubishi Outlander IIHS 2016 Top Safety Pick+

When customers shop for a family SUV, safety is usually at the top of their list of desired features. At Coronet Mitsubishi, we’re proud to say that the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander, one of our most best-selling models, has been named a 2016 Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

For 2016, earning IIHS Top Safety Pick+ certification is no longer a matter of receiving the highest score of “Good” in all but one category. This time, models must earn the highest safety score in every crashworthiness evaluation, including small overlap front, moderate overlap front, head restraints and seats, side, and roof strength.

Even then, that’s only good enough for the Top Safety Pick award sans the plus sign. To get the latter, vehicles must also earn an “Advanced” or “Superior” rating for front crash prevention, which the Outlander achieved when equipped with optional Forward Collision Mitigation technology.
