As usual with the Japanese brand, the SUV features the advanced S-AWC four-wheel drive system connected to active stability control to provide a dynamic response on all surfaces. Along with the assistants to the team driving, such as the driver fatigue detector and the navigation system, it uses weather, temperature, topography and traffic data to select the most efficient route and the battery power management that divides the vehicle’s torque. optimized way.


Mitsubishi presented an interesting conceptual model at the Geneva Motor Show 2019, which once again ratifies its commitment to electric mobility and opens the door to the brand’s future plug-in hybrid vehicles. The new Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer Concept comes on the scene after several advances. This electrified SUV was named after the famous ski resort in central Switzerland.

The Japanese manufacturer has become, thanks to Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, one of the main protagonists in sustainable and electric mobility. Mitsubishi can be proud to have the best-selling plug-in hybrid car in its line. The new Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer Concept shows some of the characteristics that the brand studies for its next generation of electrified vehicles.

Aesthetically the Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer Concept presents the very design of an SUV, although in its cabin had as main premise the goal of achieving a spacious interior. Stylish and functional, so Mitsubishi describes its new concept car. In addition, to accentuate its more adventurous side, it features additional LED headlights on the ceiling. The body protections enhance its rugged and strong appearance.

In relation to the interior, there is a spacious passenger compartment that, if not for the combination of colors, could pass perfectly inside a production vehicle. It is loaded with technology and has four individual seats so that adult passengers can travel with total comfort.

The all-digital dashboard and the massive floating-type touch screen that crowns the center console reveal that we are in front of a vehicle that offers a high level of connectivity. The on-board computer displays all information relevant to the operation of the plug-in hybrid system, such as power consumption and battery status.

Under the hood of the Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer Concept is a hybrid plug-in system that revolves around a 2.4-liter gasoline engine developed specifically for this type of mechanics and can also act as a generator. The gasoline engine combines with another electric to give the vehicle a full traction system. It features the Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) traction system.

According to the new WLTP cycle the Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer Concept can run up to 70 kilometers in 100% electric mode. With the battery and fuel tank charged it offers a range of up to 700 kilometers.


A car that takes the driver to anywhere, whether on land or asphalt, and can still be considered your home. This is the proposal of the L200 Triton Sport Duaron, which was developed as show car for the Salão de São Paulo. The vehicle combines the strength and toughness of the Mitsubishi Motors 4×4 DNA pick-up with Duaron, a reference in the production of trailers.

The purpose of the L200 Triton Sport Duaron is to awaken the outdoor desire, to break barriers and to realize dreams. It is ideal for those who want to travel on a weekend without destination or even make a long trip around the country without having to worry about the infrastructure of the place.

“Over the years, we have developed several recreational vehicles in Mitsubishi pick-ups. We decided to look for the brand and develop a super and innovative product to exhibit in the Salão de São Paulo, which has all the qualities L200 Triton Sport with the comfort of a motorhome Duaron. We apply everything that is most modern in the manufacture of recreational vehicles in a single product, “says Ari Duarte, director of Duaron Recreation Vehicles.

The car has complete infrastructure with bathroom, kitchen, bedroom, water, electricity, among others. In addition, an improvement of the suspension of the pick-up was made, leaving the whole set compatible with the structure that was installed in the body.

Not to mention all the strength and endurance of the L200 Triton Sport, a vehicle with the most modern traction system on the market, the Super Select II, which has 4×2, 4×4 (which can turn on asphalt), 4×4 with central differential lock and reduced 4×4.

For even greater comfort, the vehicle is equipped with a 7.0 inch capacitive screen multimedia system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, state-of-the-art audio streaming and WiFi connection, which allows access to native applications such as Waze and Spotify.

Vehicle can compete in national and international competitions, such as the Sertões Rally and Dakar Rally

The tradition of Mitsubishi Motors off-road is known worldwide. No wonder, the brand is 12 times the Dakar Rally Champion and 11 of the Sertões Rally, thanks to the robust design of its vehicles and its 4×4 suitability. Now, Mitsubishi Motors of Brazil presents the newest model prepared for competitions, the L200 Triton Sport R.

Based on the model that is sold in the dealers, this car was developed in Brazil in partnership with Spinelli Racing, which counts with the direction of the biggest winner of the Sertões Rally, Guilherme Spinelli.

The model was created for the category of production vehicles (T2 FIA), which is extremely strict in the modifications that can be made and which maintains the general characteristics of the factory car. “It’s practically an original car with the safety features that rally evidence demands,” explains Fernando Julianelli, chief marketing officer at Mitsubishi Motors.

The engine is 2.4 Diesel, 16 valves / DOHC MIVEC, Common-Rail direct electronic injection, maximum power of 225 hp at 3,750 rpm and torque of 502 Nm at 2,350 rpm.

In addition to the engine, the transmission, the chassis and the body are original. The model received protection cage, shell banks, five-point belts, extinguisher system and a redistribution of weight was made, leaving it even more prepared to face the trails and roads.

For even greater comfort of the riders, the L200 Triton Sport R kept the air conditioning, without compromising the performance in the competitions. Also installed is a Pro Tune data acquisition panel, which gathers all the information about the performance of the car. And, to make the car even more efficient in the tests, two coil-over dampers were installed per wheel and helical spring racing in the front and semielíptica racing in the rear

Construction and development process

Like any new project, the car began to be built last year, and in early 2018 entered the track for testing.

“We are impressed with the performance of the car in the durability tests,” says Guilherme Spinelli. “We have already run 1,600 kilometers, equivalent to two full seasons of the Mitsubishi Cup, and we do not need to make any replacement parts, except for those with natural wear like brakes and filter. The L200 Triton Sport R is proving to be one of the most reliable cars we have ever developed, “he explains.

Mitsubishi is the only one in the country that has a production line for racing cars. The new L200 Triton Sport R will be produced at the Mitsubishi Motors factory in Catalão (GO), ensuring the same quality as the products that are purchased from the dealers.


At the end of 2015, the three-diamond mark gave the finishing touch to the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution with a special edition limited to 1,600 units and called Final Edition. Since the end of its production, we have not been able to enjoy the benefits of the Japanese sports sedan, but now Dytko Sport, a Polish preparer specializing in the manufacture and sale of components for rally versions, features the Mitsubishi Lancer Edition R.

This is a modern interpretation of what the Evo XI would be based on a unit of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X. Dytko has teamed up with Proto Cars to work on an Evo X and convert it into a fully customized sports sedan that gives us a vision of what the new generation should look like.

Details are not available, but Dytko Sport promises it will make all model data public next weekend. The sedan appears to embrace the features of Mitsubishi’s Dymanic Shield design language, with the new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross headlights and very sharp taillights, bulky bumpers, a custom-ventilated hood, and an air intake in the ceiling are visible elements in the Mitsubishi Lancer Edition R.

Pictures of the interior of the model were not released, but in some images you can see a pair of bucket seats and a safety cage, where we should find the rear seats. Nor have they made public the data on the engine and its performance.

The latest Lancer Evolution was equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine with 305 horsepower and 413 Nm of torque, a five-speed manual transmission and an advanced all-wheel drive system that shows its ability both on and off the asphalt.
