Mitsubishi has a talent for designing stunning concept cars, but it usually doesn’t have the resources to put them into production. The latest concept car from the Japanese automaker is the Engelberg Tourer, an adventure-focused SUV debuting at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. But will it be another concept that’s all show and no go?
Named after the Swiss ski resort of Engelberg, the Engelberg Tourer features bold styling typical of Mitsubishi’s recent concept cars. The burly vehicle almost looks like a futuristic version of the cult-classic Montero SUV. The Montero was an old-school off-roader that helped kickstart the SUV craze, but like all of Mitsubishi’s best models, it was discontinued years ago. Mitsubishi previously hinted at a Montero replacement with the Concept GC-PHEV and GT-PHEV, but neither made it to production
The Engelberg Tourer features a plug-in hybrid powertrain built around a 2.4-liter gasoline engine. This is most plausible part of the vehicle, as Mitsubishi already offers a plug-in hybrid powertrain in the Outlander. Like the Outlander, the Engelberg Tourer features Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC), which constantly adjusts electronic driving aids like ABS, traction control, and stability control to help keep the driver from crashing. The plug-in hybrid SUV can drive up to 70 kilometers (43 miles) on electricity alone, using the European WLTP test cycle, according to Mitsubishi.
