Still in Discussion – The Mitsubishi ASX Evolution Hybrid Crossover

With the stellar 2014 sales year and the success of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV in the UK market, rumor has it that Mitsubishi’s achievements might provide more opportunities to develop a high-performance, hybrid ASX (known as the ‘Outlander Sport’ to those of us in the States) crossover that will don the company’s Evo Badge.

So what might the specs look like? Expect to see a hybrid powertrain with all-wheel-drive, finely tuned to maximize the power-to-weight ratio capable of 300-something horsepower with sleek styling cues from the XR PHEV II concept.

“Ultimately it all comes down to the financial case for it and whether the company has the resources to do it,” said Mitsubishi’s UK boss Lance Bradley. However, he also adds, “We’ve got a lot of senior management talking about it.”

But, of course, this is just conjecture. And even if it does come to fruition, there’s no guarantee of it crossing the pond to the States.

While we wait with baited breath for the Mitsubishi ASX Evolution hybrid crossover, be sure to come visit us at Coronet Mitsubishi to see all of the available hatchbacks, sedans, and crossovers available to you today!

Apple and Android Interface Coming to 2016 Mitsubishi Pajero Infotainment Package

Mitsubishi has recently confirmed its plans to implement the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto operating systems on its 2016 Mitsubishi Pajero for European markets. The new formatted infotainment systems would allow users to simply plug in a smartphone and see menu options and formatting in the familiar Apple or Android interfaces. This would achieve a host of improvements including voice recognition, maps, music, and certain popular apps to the Mitsubishi Pajero Infotainment touchscreen’s display.

 

The Pajero is the European version of the Mitsubishi Montero, and although the infotainment systems are not yet listed as options in the US just yet, the rollout across the pond is a good sign that they’ll be forthcoming. Another update that seems inevitable is the next-generation Montero that will incorporate the design language of the Concept GC-PHEV into a production version. Expectations are high for both the updated Montero and the Apple CarPlay/Android Auto systems.

Best November Sales for Mitsubishi in Seven Years

It seems seven was the magic number for November sales for Mitsubishi Motors North America. The company reported its best November sales since 2007, seven years ago, with nearly 7,000 vehicles sold. And guess by how much sales increased over November sales last year: 7.6%.

The only number that interrupts our streak of sevens is the number of consecutive months of year-over-year sales increases. November is the ninth month in a row in which Mitsubishi’s sales have increased over 2013 sales during the same period.

As usual, the Outlander Sport ranked as the automaker’s best-seller with 2,679 units sold. The Mitsubishi Mirage had a strong month of sales as well, earning a 30.1% increase over last year’s sales during the same period.

“We’ve seen nine consecutive months of year-over-year increases, with the Outlander Sport and the Mirage leading the way,” said Mitsubishi’s executive vice president, Don Swearingen. “We’ve also had a strong November for our Outlander and Lancer and are on track to continue this momentum through the end of the year.”

We at Coronet of Peru are looking forward to another month of successful sales to close out the year. Hopefully, we’ll be seeing you soon!
