Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer Electric SUV Teased

FEB 26 2019 BY STEVEN LOVEDAY 6

Mitsubishi has released another teaser and it reveals the upcoming Engelberg Tourer’s profile.

About a month ago, we informed you that Mitsubishi has plans to unveil its Engelberg Tourer Electric SUV Concept In Geneva. Well, the time is about to arrive and the automaker has teased the crossover once again. Like most teaser images (previous teaser shown below), it’s hiding in the shadows and doesn’t let on too much. But still, you can easily make out the shape and profile of the SUV.

As you can see from the image above, the Engelberg Tourer looks much like your run-of-the-mill sporty crossover. There’s really no way to assess its size or footprint, but the image is quite revealing in terms of the SUV’s shape and exterior facade. In addition, it’s clear that there’s a roof box atop the vehicle, which may or may not come as an option on the crossover. According to Autoblog, it houses the off-road lights as you can see in the previous teaser below.

We can’t count how many times we’ve heard that the Outlander PHEV is in dire need of a redesign. It finally made its way to U.S. shores at the very end of 2017, after a wealth of delays. While it’s well-priced, it lacks much of what’s expected of SUVs in today’s market. Autoblog notes that it seems similar enough to the Outlander that it may well become the next iteration of the plug-in hybrid. Hopefully, we’ll know much more in a few weeks.

We extend kudos to Autoblog, as it did some nice work with Photoshop to better reveal the upcoming crossover. Follow the source link below to see it more clearly.

Boycott Mitsubishi & Nissan ‼️

Release Ghosn ‼️

I’ve had an Outlander for 3.5 years and found it great. I would have loved a full BEV version of it but even as recently as 6 months ago Mitsubishi said ‘nope’.
Too late for me now as I’ve ordered a Niro.

Guessing this won’t be available in the US?

It’s more in a concept phase still … until Mitsu announces that it will indeed produce it. Until then, this is not exactly available anywhere.

Wow, the market really is getting A LOT of EV SUVs/Crossovers. What will be depressing is that they will ALL be very expensive since they are not being designed very aerodynamic such that they’ll need a lot of batteries for decent range thus pushing up costs.

I worry that this may cause another “EVs are too expensive backlash” since the SUVs are all going to be $60K and up.

The Outlander PHEV has some amazing features lacking in all other EV’s. You can use the engine to charge the 12 kWh battery. Then you can pull up to 1500 watts from a built in inverter. Can’t do that with a Tesla.

Say you want to go camping. On the way there you use the engine to charge the battery. Then you can glamp it up. I wish the Outlander PHEV could tow more than 1500 lbs.
