Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer PHEV Brings Boxy To Geneva: Photos, Videos

Next-generation of Mitsubishi PHEVs will offer more EV range

Mitsubishi promised a new concept, which will bring more SUV, more EV, more technology and more style at the Geneva Motor Show – seeing the Engelberg Tourer we can confirm that the goal was achieved.

The Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer Concept hints at the next-generation plug-in hybrid system, which has big potential to keep Outlander PHEV at the forefront of PHEVs.

The key is to increase battery capacity by more than a half (probably to more than 20 kWh) and achieve all-electric range of 70 km (43 miles) on the WLTP cycle. It’s enough to cover almost all commuting needs, retaining capability to drive up to 700 km (434 miles) without recharging/refueling.

With a bigger battery and back-up gasoline engine, Mitsubishi intends to offer Vehicle to Home (V2H) system with bi-directional CHAdeMO charger. The Engelberg Tourer Concept provides power in emergency situations.

Also, the style of the new concept is pretty cool (if you like its boxiness) with much higher potential for commercialization than some other specific concepts presented by Mitsubishi over the years. Below you can find live photos and videos with Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer Concept.

Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer Concept specs:

  • all-electric range of 70 km (43 miles) in WLTP cycle
  • total cruising range of over 700 km (434 miles) in WLTP cycle
  • 2.4-litre petrol engine, specifically designed for the PHEV system

I don’t get it – is this really just a concept? There’s a lot of specifics in this one. What’s the Outlander’s future?

It could be the next size up like the Subaru Ascent is to the Outback

Please stop. Mitsubishi, that thing is hideous. Go back and try again.

I’m guessing they will put ET on the rear of it ⁉️

😉

Love the boxy look.

I thought the weirdmobile stage was over. I guess not for Mitsubishi, if this vehicle makes it to production.

My theory: The Legacies do this for a very specific reason, to segment the market. EV enthusiasts are so hungry for anything with a plug they’ll buy something that’s, well, butt ugly. But the rest of the consumer base isn’t that flexible in their aesthetics, so the Legacies can offer BEVs and PHEVs that are ugly but won’t poach their ICEV sales.

Or maybe their design departments have found the stash of magic mushrooms again.

Legacy makers don’t mind PHEVs. These still have a combustion engine, with the electric components being only added to the mix. It’s BEVs that they fear.

It’s a concept. They are meant to be weird. (Regardless of the power train.) It won’t look like that when (if?) it makes it to production.

Rivian: Check out this Star Wars-esque front end on our truck and SUV!

Mitsu: Hold my sake.

I don’t get the integrated cargo box. The point of a cargo box is to be able to take it off when not needed. If it’s integrated, why make it look seperate? Why not just streamline it to the roofline?

70 km WLTP for 100 km NEDC — that’s the new standard for future PHEVs. (Apparently a requirement for the Chinese market?)

That range should be good enough for most commutes. The decisive question is, will it have enough power to actually work well in all-electric mode?
