Mitsubishi has prepared an SUV for skiersMarch 5, 2019
At the Geneva Motor Show, Mitsubishi Motors presented the Engelberg Tourer conceptual crossover, named after the popular ski resort Engelberg in Switzerland. The novelty used a number of technologies that were developed for sports sedans of the Lancer Evolution family.
The concept car is designed to give an idea of the stylistic elements and practical solutions that can be applied to future Japanese-made serial crossovers. The Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer received narrow headlamp units with blue LED lines on each side, as well as an auxiliary lighting system on the roof and a trunk for transporting various equipment for outdoor activities.
The car was equipped with a hybrid power plant with the ability to recharge batteries from a household electrical outlet. It consisted of a 2.4-liter, naturally aspirated four-cylinder gasoline engine, two electric motors on the front and rear axles, as well as a set of 20-kWh batteries integrated in the bottom of the car.
Exclusively on the electric Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer is able to travel up to 70 km without recharging, and with a fully fueled fuel tank, the maximum cruising range is 700 kilometers.
Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer received a system of dynamic distribution of torque between the wheels Active Yaw Control, designed specifically for the Lancer Evo. The function works in conjunction with the upgraded proprietary four-wheel drive system S-AWC.
