While they’re still a relatively big name, Mitsubishi has spent the last few years a bit under the radar. But it looks like they’re ready to reemerge at the top of the pile, if their Engelberg Tourer hybrid concept SUV is any indication.
With its futuristic styling, this thing looks like it’s ready to handle the harsh terrain of Mars — meaning it’s more than capable of handling just about anything here on Earth. Named after the famed Swiss ski resort, the Engelberg is a twin-motor 4WD plug-in hybrid EV built to showcase Mitsubishi’s new Dendo Drive House — a technology that allows electric vehicle users to seamlessly generate and share energy between their vehicle and home. The gas engine component is a 2.4L unit designed specifically to function alongside the electric motors, boasting a total range of over 434 miles per tank. It also features beefy off-road tires, underside skid plates to protect it from debris, and it even has an automated push-button rooftop cargo box. Mate that to a suite of interesting connected technologies in the cabin and this sci-fi SUV is set to impress.
