Mitsubishi Mirage Earns 2020 ALG Pre-Owned Value Award

2020 Mitsubishi Mirage GT | Charlotte, NC

Mitsubishi’s subcompact crossover, the Mirage, has recently earned the 2020 ALG Pre-Owned award for receiving the lowest forecasted depreciation of any subcompact vehicle. ALG looks at 27 different aspects of cars aged two to five years old, which includes viewing a vehicle’s cross-shop information, transaction price, and vehicle size.

The ALG Pre-Owned Value awards are considered the go-to reference point for evaluating the depreciation of vehicles. The awards are only given to cars and trucks that have the lowest anticipated depreciation values between the ages of two and five years old — from the years 2019 to 2022.

Based on its EPA-estimated 43 mpg on the highway,* the Mitsubishi Mirage is the most fuel-efficient gas-powered engine in the United States. With an affordable starting price tag of just $13,795, and backed by Mitsubishi’s extraordinary fully transferrable five-year/60,000 mile limited warranty, a five-year/unlimited mile roadside assistance, a seven-year/100,000 mile anti-corrosion perforation limited warranty and a 10-year/100,000 mile powertrain limited warranty, Mirage owners are most certainly getting some bang for their buck.

The 2020 Mirage promises to offer many of the same features as its predecessor, but it includes automatic climate control feature across all trims.

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Named 2020 Family Green Car of the Year™

2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV | Charlotte, NC

In 2019, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV won the Green Car Journal’s award for the Green SUV of the Year. For 2020, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is one of the finalists for the Family Green Car of the Year™ award.

The Family Green Car of the Year™ award is bestowed upon a versatile, family-friendly vehicle that boasts eco-friendly attributes. This prestigious award aims to highlight new, environmentally conscious vehicles that feature low emissions and electrified technology.

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV itself combines a 2.0-liter MIVEC engine with twin electric motors, offering a 22-mile all-electric driving range and a whopping combined EPA estimated 74 mpg-e.* This mean the plug-in hybrid offers you the option of a clean commute.

The 2020 Outlander PHEV only uses gasoline when required. When you need a little more power, like driving up a hill, or cruising down the highway, an integrated clutch in the front axle switches to one of the hybrid modes— EV mode, Series Hybrid Mode, and Parallel Hybrid Mode. Each mode uses a different variation of the MIVEC and twin batteries, offering drivers peak performance in all conditions.

Like all of Mitsubishi’s rides, the Outlander PHEV is backed by a 10-year/10,000-mile powertrain warranty. If you’d like to check out the Outlander PHEV, you can take it for a spin at Larry Jay Mitsubishi.

2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Rear Cross-Traffic Alert | Charlotte, NC

As the ideal eco-friendly family vehicle, the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV comes with extensive space, technologies, and safety features. In particular, the Outlander PHEV safety features received a Five-Star Overall Safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

According to Mitsubishi, the Outlander PHEV has multiple available active safety features, such as Forward Collision Mitigation with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Warning, Automatic High Beams, Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spot Warning, and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. Perhaps best of all, for the 2020 model year, the PHEV will have these safety technologies on every trim level — which is another reason the NHTSA gave the Outlander PHEV such a high safety rating.

“Our highest priority is keeping our customers safe on the road, and our design and engineering efforts have been validated through NHTSA’s rigorous evaluation process,” said Nate Berg, director of product planning for Mitsubishi North America. “Now for 2020, we can proudly say that Outlander PHEV continues to offer our customers the highest levels of safety, quality and capability in one unique package.”

In addition to its stellar safety features, the PHEV has the Mitsubishi-backed 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, which is great for drivers who want added peace of mind. Whether you want to reduce your carbon footprint or you simply want a safe, family vehicle, the Outlander PHEV is the ideal SUV.

Mitsubishi Recognized for Its Empowerment of Women Workers

Workplace diversity can be one of the most valuable strengths that a company possesses. Different perspectives can result in new ideas and strong strategies. That’s why Mitsubishi is so committed to increasing the diversity of its workforce.

These efforts were recently recognized, as Mitsubishi earned a position as an MSCI Japan Empowering Women Index constituent.

The MSCI Japan Empowering Women Index, or WIN for short, examines efforts by several Japanese companies to make the workplace a more welcoming and healthy environment for women. Mitsubishi has now been recognized by the organization for two years in a row, demonstrating the automaker’s commitment to making the workplace a better environment for women workers.

Roughly five years ago in July of 2014, Mitsubishi launched the Diversity Promotion Policy. This policy not only worked to make the workplace an improved environment for women but other groups of diverse workers as well. Mitsubishi followed the Act on the Promotion of Female Participation and Career Advancement in the Workplace for its women workforce in particular. This helped facilitate more time off for new and expecting mothers, as well as on-site facilities geared toward the female workers at Mitsubishi.

Mitsubishi plans to introduce new diversity efforts in the next upcoming years, and we here at Larry Jay Mitsubishi are certainly proud of these initiatives.

2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV | Larry Jay Mitsubishi | Charlotte, NC

It’s not every day an electrified vehicle gets to call itself the best plug-in hybrid, but the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV recently took that title for itself. The New England Motor Press Association announced the winner of the “Best in Class Green Vehicle Hybrid or PHEV” at the Winter Vehicle Awards.

Reports Suggest Mitsubishi Plans to Resize SUV Lineup

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV | Charlotte, NC

Crossovers and SUVs are quickly becoming some of the most popular and in-demand vehicles on the road today. As such, SUVs are a crucial part of any automaker’s lineup. In recent years, Mitsubishi heavily prioritized crossovers and SUVs, turning out favorites like the Outlander, the Outlander PHEV, and the Eclipse Cross. Now Mitsubishi wants to offer even more variety in its SUV lineup. To do so, it has announced plans to resize its entire lineup of crossovers and SUVs.

 

While SUVs like the Mitsubishi Outlander, Outlander Sport, and Eclipse Cross all offer distinct features that appeal to different lifestyles, they are all relatively similar in size. In order to further differentiate between these SUVs and make it easier for you to discover which is right for you, reports suggest that Mitsubishi plans to redesign the size differences between their SUVs.

 

Rumors claim that the Outlander is slated to increase in size while the Outlander Sport will become smaller. The Eclipse Cross, on the other, seems like it will stay the same.

 

Additional rumors suggest even more exciting changes to come to the Mitsubishi SUV lineup. For example, the Eclipse Cross is reportedly poised to see the addition of a Hybrid variant.

Outlander PHEV’s battery life

There is no denying the growing popularity and allure of driving an electric car. For many people, they want to live a greener lifestyle, while others want to be able to save on fuel costs. Whatever your reason for wanting something electric, it is a good one. As the popularity increases, the technology improves. For the 2019 model year, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV’s battery life is getting even better.

Mitsubishi has announced a 10 percent increase in its battery capacity. This comes from a switch to a 2.4-liter Atkinson Cycle inline four-cylinder engine, compared to a 2.0-liter engine for the 2018 model year. With this new engine and its new 13.8 kWh battery pack, it will offer an electric driving range of 28 miles. The 2018 model has an electric range of 22 miles.

Along with its increased range, the Outlander PHEV is getting a boost in power, too. The electric motor’s output gets a boost of 10 percent to deliver 95 horsepower on its own. This brings the total output to 135 horsepower. The electric mode top speed has increased to 84 mph from just 78 mph last year.

The upgrades are not just performance related. The interior gets some updates, too. There will be new leather seats in the front and more climate control vents for back seat passengers to enjoy.

2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Wins Title of “Best Green Winter Vehicle”

Best Green Winter Vehicle

Mitsubishi hit the jackpot with the Outlander PHEV. The award-winning Mitsubishi Outlander already made waves in the SUV segment after its 2016 redesign, and the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV was highly anticipated in the U.S. as the first-ever hybrid SUV at its price point. Now, it’s getting attention with a new accolade, as the New England Motor Press Association’s “Best Green Winter Vehicle.”

Winters aren’t as tough here in North Carolina as they are up in New England, but having a member of the hybrid segment that can handle hazardous weather and slippery road conditions always comes in handy. Features like traction control and all-wheel drive proved themselves capable when tested on New England roads in the wintertime. Plus, with add-ons like heated seats and side mirrors in addition to active driver assist features, as well as de-icers for the front and rear windshields, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV helps take the headache out of navigating slick roads.

The fact that the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV provides hybrid fuel economy in addition to all of its SUV capabilities is what made it the clear winner of the “Best Green Winter Vehicle” award. Even though it’s summertime here in Charlotte, it never hurts to prepare yourself for winter driving later this year.

Mitsubishi Wins Awards for Innovation and Design

Mitsubishi Wins Awards

It’s never surprising when Mitsubishi wins awards. The brand is constantly revising its current lineup and updating with new vehicles to match the ever-evolving needs of the modern driver. So when Mitsubishi won two GOOD DESIGN awards this spring, the news came as no surprise.

The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design GOOD DESIGN is an award program that started back in 1950. The contest awards brands that prioritize innovation, as well as progressive designs which help push the industry into new territory.

This year, Mitsubishi received one award for the new Eclipse Cross and one award for the GT-PHEV Concept. The 2018 Eclipse Cross is the newest vehicle in the Mitsubishi lineup. The new crossover takes its name from the Mitsubishi Eclipse, a beloved sport car no longer in production. The modern design of the Eclipse Cross pays homage to its namesake with a sleek design and performance functions such as available all-wheel drive.

The Mitsubishi GT-PHEV Concept debuted at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. It has no plans to be in production at any point, but rather serves as a model for the direction that Mitsubishi aims to go with design and innovation. Since the GT-PHEV Concept foreshadows the future of this pioneering company, it’s no wonder it received honors for influencing the design of the automotive industry as a whole.

Mitsubishi Announces New Advertising Campaign for the Eclipse Cross

Mitsubishi Announces New Advertising Campaign for the Eclipse Cross - Larry Jay Mitsubishi - Charlotte, NC

When a new car is born, a new advertising campaign is born as well. It’s one of the best and most efficient ways to spread the news about a fresh addition to the lineup. Mitsubishi recently shared some information about its upcoming ad campaign for the all-new Eclipse Cross.

 

The campaign is called “A Classic Reborn,” an apt title considering the circumstances surrounding the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, a crossover that slots between the Mitsubishi Outlander and the Outlander Sport models. While its design may be new, its name is not. The original Mitsubishi Eclipse was a beloved sports sedan that was discontinued a few years back.

 

But the new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross was designed to meet more current needs. It’s still sporty in performance and appearance, but can accommodate lifestyles that require additional benefits of a crossover. That’s what Mitsubishi intends to share in its “A Classic Reborn” ad campaign, which will appear on its YouTube Channel and major television networks. Violin and piano play “I Wanna Rock” by Twisted Sister over shots of the Eclipse Cross driving in the night. The mysterious ad will engage the attention of viewers, letting them know that there’s a new Mitsubishi in town.
