Mitsubishi EVO Successor to be “King of Electric Vehicles”

Rumor has it that Mitsubishi has plans to create a brand new high performance hybrid CUV that will draw heavily from the XR-PHEV II Concept revealed at the Geneva Motor Show – and will be the “king of electric vehicles,” according to Tetsuro Aikawa, Mitsubishi president.

“In the future, we would like to launch such a vehicle with Evo characteristics. In Japanese, when you pronounce ‘Oh’ [in Evo], it means ‘king,’” explained the Mitsubishi president. “So we would like to launch this type of car, featuring EV and PHEV technology, which is the ultimate of its kind. ‘EV’ for electric vehicle, ‘O’ for king – Evo.”

The Mitsubishi EVO successor will allegedly contain a performance oriented gasoline-electric plug-in hybrid four-wheel-drive powertrain mounted to a lighter and faster CUV body based on the next-generation ASX crossover and imbued with technology from the Mitsubishi Pikes Peak racing program.

Drive-in Theater Tips: Getting the Most out of Your Drive-in Experience

With warmer weather on the way, that means we’ll be seeing drive-in theaters open across the region. Drive-ins are a great way to have fun with family or friends, but there are a few things that can optimize your experience. We’ve put together a list of drive-in theater tips to make sure you get the most out of your film-going experience.

According to Tips for Family Trips, the key is to choose the right double-feature. If you’re unfamiliar with drive-ins, most offer two movies for the price of one – but some might not be appropriate for children. The best thing to remember is: which films are the best for everyone?

Our second tip is to get a Mitsubishi or pack lawn chairs. Most cars can get uncomfortable after a few hours, so lawn chairs can help you spread your legs and relax. If you have a Mitsubishi, odds are you have plenty of legroom and comfy seats.

Tip number three is to avoid going during a heat wave. If you’re going to sit through a few hours of family entertainment, make sure to choose your day carefully. Avoid going when it’s too hot outside, because you probably won’t want to run the A/C the entire time you’re there.

Last but not least, start your car every once in a while. Drive-ins work using radio frequencies, so most people run it with just the car battery on. Although some drive-ins will remind you, remember to start your car to charge up your battery.
