Mitsubishi - basic info and current lineup

Mitsubishi is the sixth largest Japanese car maker.

After the Pajero's big success at the earliest days of SUV craze back in 1990s, Mitsubishi has fallen into problems caused by malfunctions of their vehicles. Bottom line of this catastrophy was a million cars and trucks that were fixed for free.

Another wrong move followed - that was a so called 0-0-0 plan, whose aim was to bring back the old glory, by offering great payment options. 0-0-0 ended in fiasco, too.

Nowadays, Mitsubishi is a part of PSA Peugeot Citroen alliance.

Current Mitsubishi Lineup:

  • Cars - Lancer, Lancer Evolution, Lancer Sportback, Galant, Eclipse, Eclipse Spider,
  • SUVs - Outlander, Outlander Sport, Endeavor

Despite all the hype surrounding electric cars, they still come with few serious flaws, which prevents the mass production. All the problems are caused by batteries - they are heavy, very expensive and, finally, provide a not so good driving autonomy. Currently, price for average battery pack is $17.000 and autonomy is far from usable.

According to Mitsubishi experts' estimates, mass production of electric cars will decrease price down to $1.500, or even as low as $900. At the same time, driving autonomy could reach 350km, which will make electric cars far more usable.
