The new-generation SUV, named after the famous ski resort in Switzerland, is a twin-motor, 4WD, Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV), which uses Mitsubishi’s advanced electrification and all-wheel control technologies. the two motors are complimented by a 2.4-litre petrol engine, with Active Yaw Control (AYC) splitting the torque between the front and the rear of the car.
The hybrid powertrain allows for an electric-only range of 43 miles, and a range of 434 on a full tank and full battery charge.
The Japanese carmaker says the Engelberg has been designed 'for a more active type of lifestyle'. As a result it has been designed to maximise passenger space, all while having flexible luggage space. It is also fitted with LED fog lamps that are located on an auto-open/close roof box and skid plates for front and rear bumpers.
Also being showcased by Mitsubishi at Geneva it the Dendo Drive House (DDH).
DDH is a new energy eco system which allows people to generate, store and transfer energy between cars and the home.
The system comprises of a bi-directional charger, solar panels and home battery which is designed for domestic use. It also allows customers to cut fuel costs by using solar panels to generate power during the day for charging EV/PHEV and domestic storage batteries. At night time, the bi-directional charger allows the home to be powered by energy from the car.
The system will be available to EV and PHEV customers from Mitsubishi dealerships later this year, with installation and aftercare included in the sale.
