The Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer EV offers a range of 70km and will a fully charged battery and full fuel tank it offers 700km range.
Mitsubishi has revealed the new Engelberg Tourer at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Named after the famous ski resort in central region of Switzerland, the Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer is a Twin Motor, 4WD, Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV). The company claims that this PHEV delivers high levels of performance in the most challenging weather conditions and on all-road surfaces.
It is claimed to come with long cruising range, allowing journeys out of town and to places with no charging infrastructure. The Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer has been designed as an elegant and functional all-purpose crossover SUV, with bodywork styled to effuse powerfulness and Mitsubishi’s renowned reliability. It is fitted with LED fog lamps that are positioned on an auto-open/close roof box and skid plates for front and rear bumpers. It is a 7-seater SUV that is claimed to offer generous space for all 3 rows.
The Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer uses MMC’s Twin Motor full-time, four-wheel drive system with high-output, high-efficiency motors driving the front and rear axles. This system uses Active Yaw Control (AYC) to tailor torque split between the front wheels. Torque split control between the front wheels improves driving performance and also increases stability by reducing wheel slip on unpaved or snow-covered roads to ensure that maximum drive torque is transmitted to the road surface.
These components are used together with MMC’s integrated vehicle behavior control system, Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC), which improves dynamic performance when accelerating, cornering and stopping by controlling the braking force at each wheel and the front and rear motor output.
It gets a 2.4-litre petrol engine, which is specifically designed for the PHEV system. In series-hybrid mode, this engine can as a high-output generator to achieve a high regeneration rate, while the larger displacement makes for more refined operation and better fuel efficiency, aided by technologies such as drag-reducing radiator grille shutters.
