The global premiere of the Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer has taken place at the Geneva motor show exhibiting the brand’s new electrification and all-wheel control technologies.
The Engelberg Tourer, which is named after a Swiss ski resort, is a plug-in hybrid that uses a 2.4-litre petrol engine with a twin electric motor all-wheel drive system, similar to the existing Outlander PHEV. It is said to offer high levels of running performance in any weather and on any road surface. A large capacity battery is also fitted in the middle of the vehicle under the floor.
In full EV mode, over 70km (WLTP cycle) of driving range is achievable whilst a fully charged battery and full fuel tank should provide a 700km (WLTP) cruising range.
A clever feature is the Connected Car System which uses weather, temperature, topography, traffic and surface condition information to select the optimum drive mode when a destination is entered into the onboard navigation system.
Design highlights of the Engelberg Tourer include radiator grille shutters that bring a reduction in drag, fog lamps fitted to an auto-open/close roof box, slim taillights and under guards for the front and rear bumpers.
Internally a wide dashboard with large infotainment screen sitting in the centre dominates the cabin with an assortment of dials and buttons. Three rows of seating are also found inside.
At this stage, the Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer is just a concept vehicle but it isn’t too much of a stretch of the imagination to see it go into production, even possibly as the next generation Outlander?
