Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corporation (MMPC) is showcasing their latest models as well as a peak into the past and the future with the display of vehicles that made their debut at prestigious international motor shows such as the Geneva Motor Show and Tokyo Motor Show.
On display are MMPC’s best-selling models such as the 2015 ASX, Montero Sport, 2015 Pajero, 2015 Mirage (Hatchback), Mirage G4, and the Lancer.
The highlight of the show was the unveiling of the Mitsubishi Concept GR-HEV (Hybrid Electric Vehicle) which is a Sport Utility Truck (SUT) concept that brings about further enhancement in environmental and driving performance. Its development was based on the combination of sedan or SUV- like comfort with the functionalities of a pickup truck.
Aside from the Concept cars, on display is the Mitsubishi Pajero that champion Japanese rally driver Hiroshi Masuoka drove to victory in the 2002 Dakar Rally. This vehicle was entered in the then newly-created Super Production class. The 2002 Pajero rally car proved its toughness and glorious heritage in the 2002 Arras- Madrid- Dakar which ran for 17 days.
Mitsubishi also offered a sneak preview of the All-new Outlander that boasts a harmonious balance of high levels of safety, high fuel efficiency and an extended utility. Both the exterior and interior styling was designed to communicate a refined and sophisticated appearance and at the same time taking into consideration the vehicle’s functionality and a pleasurable ride with a comfortable driving and riding experience. The new-Outlander’s world-class engineering and technology aims to provide premium driving experience.
Their star-studded program was hosted by Boom Gonzales and Gretchen Fullido, and was graced by celebrity Ellen Adarna, musician Rico Blanco, and matinee actor Markki Stroem.
Aside from the exciting displays MMPC is also offering test drives of the 2015 ASX, Mirage, Mirage G4, Montero Sport and the world’s first plug-in hybrid electric vehicle SUV, the Outlander PHEV, for the duration of the PIMS.
