Seen this online.


From Green Car Congress:

"The engine is a 2.4L gasoline unit designed for the PHEV system. In series hybrid mode, the engine acts as a high-output generator and achieves a high regeneration rate, while the larger displacement makes for quieter operation and better fuel mileage. In addition to the higher efficiencies in the PHEV system itself, Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer uses detail low-consumption technologies such as radiator grille shutters that bring a reduction in drag.

The large capacity drive battery is fitted beneath the floor in the middle of the vehicle. It uses MMC’s Twin Motor system that locates high output, high efficiency motors at front and rear, but enables a cabin space that allows 3-row seating.

Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer has an EV cruising range of more than 70 km / 43.5 miles (WLTP cycle), and with a fully charged battery and full fuel tank it has a total cruising range of more than 700 km / 435 miles (WLTP)."

Note the radiator grille shutters mentioned. ;)


Look like plenty of ground clearance there. :D

"Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer concept previews new Outlander."


"Mitsubishi has revealed the Engelberg Tourer concept car at the Geneva Motor Show overnight, which appears to preview the next generation Outlander - due within a few years - with its exterior style, interior design and plug-in hybrid drivetrain technology.

Named after a ski resort in Switzerland, the Engelberg Tourer uses a twin motor plug-in hybrid drivetrain and all-wheel drive system, similar to the current Outlander PHEV.

The Engelberg Tourer concept uses bold and aggressive exterior styling that resembles the current Mitsubishi products. Using the brand’s latest grille design - taken from the latest Triton and ASX update - it’s obvious that the Engelberg Tourer’s front end would easily fit onto a production car without much change.

The rear of Engelberg Tourer uses slim tailights that appear to widen the car, while it also features a large roof box that uses LED lighting mounted at the front.

Like the exterior, the interior of the Engelberg Tourer appears to be 90 per cent production ready. Its layout uses a wide dashboard with a large multimedia screen in the centre. The driver’s gauges are digital, and the centre console features an off-road control dial, EV mode button and separate climate control screen.

Also like some versions of the current Outlander, the Engelberg Tourer concept features a seven-seat layout, which is unlike the current five-seat only Outlander PHEV.

Like the Outlander PHEV, the Engelberg can be charged and driven on purely-electric power, and once the batteries are depleted, a 2.4-litre petrol engine drives the car in tandem with the electric motors.

The company claims that the Engelberg Tourer has an all-electric range of 70km - a 16km improvement on the current PHEV - and a total range of over 700km with a full fuel tank and a fully charged battery."

This from CarShowroom:

"Mitsubishi’s Engelberg Tourer, Previewing '20 Outlander?"


"Mitsubishi has unveiled its big Geneva debutant, the Engelberg Tourer concept, to an enthralled & excited crowd at the ongoing motorshow. The Engelberg Tourer drew a number of people to the stand as, for all intents and purposes, this is a sneak preview of the next-generation Outlander SUV.

It’s named after a Swiss skiing destination and, by the looks of it, it’s a more upmarket interpretation of the Outlander’s basic package, which also integrates Mitsubishi’s latest design language. You’ll find the brand’s ‘Dynamic Shield Face’ on its, uh, face, with large main headlight units sitting below high-mounted LED daytime running lights. These flank a large, sealed-off grille, which is outlined by blue-illuminated strips. There’s chrome detailing around the place, as well as an integrated roof box that features an auto open/close function, as well as forward-facing spotlights.

And in typical motorshow car fashion, the Engelberg Tourer is bereft of side mirrors and door handles." :lol:

The interior reveals a truly luxurious atmosphere, that seamlessly integrates the luxury measures & touches of today with the technological capabilities & functionalities that we expect of a modern car. To that end there’s a digital instrument cluster ahead of the driver and a large centre infotainment screen, the latter featuring a couple of analogue dials on either side in a nod to functionality over style. The centre stack features a gear selector and what appears to be a ‘terrain select’ knob, again underlining the Engelberg’s intent on being an all-weather machine.

The Engelberg Tourer is a plug-in hybrid, marrying a 2.4-litre petrol mill with an electric motor and some modestly-sized batteries. Outputs weren’t mentioned, but Mitsubishi claims the Engelberg can do as much as 70km on a fully-charged battery, while total touring range is claimed to be in excess of 700km.

In addition to the Engelberg Tourer, Mitsubishi also brought their ‘Dendo Drive House,’ which they call a “packaged system comprising the EV/PHEV, a bi-directional charger, solar panels, and a home battery,” which effectively permits the car to charge the house and vice-versa. It should theoretically reduce power bills, and even keep the house running in the event of a power outage. Cool, eh?"

This from Carlist:

"Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV) are nothing new. We have them in concept form, and we have them in production form, and we have entire networks of chargers being set up in various parts of the world to make these versatile hybrid vehicles more fuel efficient by keeping those batteries happily charged. The latest in the line of PHEV concepts is the Engelberg Tourer from Mitsubishi, named after a ski town in Switzerland. It's an SUV that seats six, in a 2 + 2 + 2 layout."



Ok got to go.

To be continued.

I like it. I hope it's available when my warranty runs out in a couple of years, it would make a nice replacement/upgrade from my current '18 PHEV.

Yes, I like it too. Obviously I won't be able to afford one for about 10 years, but I can look :)

Quite Volvo XC90 like..

Not sure I like it, too bold, but it will grow on me and by the time it's actually available it'll have toned down a bit I suspect.
