Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer Concept



That is quite a mouthful.
Let's hope this will see actual production as just "Outlander". 
Since the current generation Outlander is now about 6 years old. And aging pretty fast.

The concept will be a pure EV. But the production version might not be.
Which is unfortunate. With the help of partner Nissan, Mitsubishi should become an all Electric brand ASAP if they really want to stand out. Or simply survive.

It is quite amazing that Nissan has not really used the Leaf EV powertrain on other passenger cars. 
(There were talks about a small Infiniti EV sedan for a while. That went nowhere)
They need to turn Mitsubishi into something special. Quick.

I guess sporty electric SUVs could be one way.
(although that thing above doesn't look particularly sporty...)

Let's hope...

I was just wondering, do you use a keyboard with voice recognition or something?

They could just as easily commit to the branding as an all electrified brand and include hybrids and PHEVs. EV immediately eliminates at least half the consumer market. I have a Volt and will probably never by a plugin vehicle again. But, I live in TX and probably won't have a home access to a plug anytime soon. EV's are for the few people who are very confident in there circumstance or it's a second car for the family. No-one outside of LA will run a cord from a second story apartment (maybe a few).
