Mitsubishi: An optimized innovation

Mitsubishi: An optimized innovation

Logo of Mitsubishi

Mitsubishi is a Japanese automobile manufacturing brand founded by Iwasaki Yataro in 1870, 145 years ago. But it started manufacturing automobiles since 1917.

Road to Cars

We all know that Mitsubishi makes car, but what most of us don’t know is that they are also in the business of heavy electricals, real estate, steel, aviation, mining, shipping and many more. Mitsubishi’s first car, Mitsubishi Model A, was made by the Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Corporation, which got merged with Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation in 1934. In 1937 Mitsubishi PX33 was first developed for military purpose. It was also Japan’s first built passenger car.

At the end of the Second World War, the country that time was in the need for commercial vehicles and the situation became worse for the first few years by the severe fuel shortage. In 1946, a bus which could be run on either petrol or alternative fuels and in 1947, an electric bus, Japan’s first truck equipped with an air suspension system, as well as the first tilt-cab truck was introduced. Passenger vehicle production was confined primarily to Mitsubishi’s first scooter.

Mitsubishi L200

In the 1960s, they developed family cars as Japan’s economy became better. Then in 1970 “ Mitsubishi Motor Company” was formed. In the 70s and 80s the world saw Mitsubishi’s success in international car rallies. By that time the brand earned popularity in the automotive market.

Design, the ultimate innovation

The brand is now desperate to involve the mob into “Mitsubishi-ness”, that is why they are making unique designs that are a class apart from its rival brands. They have setup studios in Frankfurt (Germany), Tokyo (Japan) and Okazaki City (Japan). All the cutting edge designs of the latest trends are developed in these studios with Okazaki, the headquarter of the design division, where the designers in collaboration with the R&D division develops advanced design for the cars. They introduced the dynamic shield design concept in cars. All of their next generation concept cars will have this in them. The modern geoseek concept has been used in Mitsubishi L200 and Mitsubishi ASX cars. They are always in the creation of innovative ideas and designs to create an example and take the future of motoring ahead.

Engine, the face of uniqueness

As said by the great Steve Jobs, “Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.” This is only possible if the engine of the car is of superior quality. Mitsubishi have always thought differently and developed innovative technologies to support the engine to show better performance.

Some of the examples are as follows:

AS&G idling stop technology
This is actually a face design concept used in Mitsubishi cars. The dynamic face expresses powerful performance and gives protection to the vehicle. The protector gives protection to both the vehicle and the people inside the car. Here the “Form Follows Function” concept is used to provide this protection.

Plug-in Hybrid EV System
This is a hybrid electric vehicle system that uses rechargable batteries, or another energy storage device, that can be recharged by plugging it in to an external source of electric power.

MIVEC technology
The full form of the abbreviation is Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing Electronic Control system. Some of the systems optimize power and torque by varying valve opening duration. Some also optimizes performance at low and mid-range engine speeds. Others focus on enhancing only high-rpm power. The MIVEC system provides both of these facilities by controlling valve timing and lift.

MiEV technology
The full form of the abbreviation is Mitsubishi In-wheel motor Electric Vehicle. MIEV motors are constructed using an in-wheel motor rotor, an in-wheel motor stator, a rotor bracket, stator bracket and inverter directly behind the brakes. The batteries can be charged from a standard 15 A/200 V car charger in seven hours and with a 3 Phase Electric Power charged up to 80 percent within 25 minutes.

They are raising standards by producing something unique, something special and something useful. The company has vehicle manufacturing centers in Japan, Philippines, Thailand and Brazil. It also has three further engine and transmission manufacturing plants, five R&D centers and 75 subsidiaries, affiliates and partners. Its vehicles are manufactured, assembled or sold in more than 160 countries in the world. It is one of the top automobile brands in the world, aiming to succeed in, “Mitsubishi-ness”.

Mitsubishi L200 Engine: Specifications & Offerings

The first generation model of Mitsubishi’s compact pickup truck was first sold in Japan as the Mitsubishi Forte in 1978 and continued until late 1986, when the line was cancelled in the Japanese domestic market for five years. In Japan the Forte was originally sold with the 92 PS (68 kW) 1.6 litre 4G32 engine (L021P). Later this was updated to the 86 PS (63 kW) 1.6 litre G32B engine with two-wheel drive (LO25) or with four-wheel drive coupled to the 2 liter Sirius G63B with 110 PS (81 kW) (LO26).

The second generation model was introduced in 1986 for most markets. In Australia, this model launched in October 1986 as the Triton.

In 1996, a new generation model was introduced with 2.5 litre turbodiesel engines developing 103 hp.

The previous 2.6 litre unit was replaced with a new, considerably more powerful 2.4 litre engine with 145 hp (108 kW). The car participated in the Dakar Rally in 2005.

The fourth generation Triton was unveiled in 2005. Designed by Akinori Nakanishi, it is built exclusively by Mitsubishi’s subsidiary in Thailand and is exported to 140 global markets. It is mostly known as L200 except for Japan and its subsidiary countries’ markets. The car has a 2.5 litre turbodiesel engine developing 134 hp or 180 hp.
Mitsubishi L200
In 2014, Mitsubishi unveiled the all new L200 which is to go on sale in early 2015 (Asia Pacific) and late 2015 (Europe and the Caribbean). Since 2015, the current generation L200 will share the same underpinnings as the newly rebadged Fiat Fullback intended for the European and Middle East markets.

The L200 is a great looking vehicle and convenient for work. It’s powered by a new 2.4-litre diesel engine.

MKL Motors offers Reconditioned L200 Engines:

Mitsubishi L200 Engine
There are numerous perks of investing in a recon engine in contrast to a second hand engine or used engine. The main advantage of a reconditioned engine is that the previously used unit is stripped down completely in order to examine its internal condition thoroughly while worn components are either refurbished or replaced with brand new components.

At MKL Motors we are always conscious of the quality of the product we provide as well as offering our clients a customer service experience to match.

Real World Car Emission to be Accessible from the Next Year Onwards

An analytics firm is set to let the people understand and know the real world car emission from their car. From the year 2016 onwards, the novel initiative will help car makers to advanced their emission approval mechanism and mpg testing.

With the help of the latest testing mechanism – known as a portable emissions measurement system (PEMS) – people will be able to understand how much carbon emission a car leaves while on the way, and thus the vehicles can be ranked as per their emission level. To make it more relevant and functional, the testing procedures and rating schemes would be treated separately, apart from the car manufacturer’s certification test, and the findings would be accessible publicly. The parameter of car emission would be determined based on CO2, nitrogen oxide (NOx) and hydrocarbons, among other contaminants.

If looking at the importance of the new initiative, it will help bridge the gap between buyers’ trust on the stated data and how much it truly pollutes the environment.

The firm, Emissions Analytics, believes that the new initiatives would influence the manufacturing policy in days to come, and more importantly the users would have access to more information. While Emissions Analytics functions as an independent firm, it employs a pool of expert professionals who have widespread expertise on air-quality testing methodology.
