2015 Mitsubishi Engineering Milestones
Mitsubishi has been making automotive history for nearly a century, ever since they debuted the Mitsubishi Model A back in 1917. Since then, they’ve made constant strides in the efforts to be at the forefront of technological innovation with 2015 Mitsubishi Engineering Milestones that set them apart from the competition. These engineering milestones are seen in many of the Mitsubishi models on the market today, and they continue to keep Mitsubishi on the cutting edge of engineering.
All-Wheel Control (AWC)
All-Wheel Control actively monitors the road as it transfers power to the wheels with the most traction. This improves handling in difficult weather conditions, including driving in snow, ice, and rain. AWC is seen in the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport and the 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer.
Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC)
All-Wheel Control got an upgrade in 2014, which became Super All-Wheel Control. This new development features four driving modes that include NORMAL for everyday driving conditions, SNOW for wintry roads or loose terrain, LOCK for off-roading, and the all-new AWC ECO Mode, which gives drivers the perfect amount of efficiency and control. S-AWC is seen in the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander and the 2015 Lancer Evolution.
Mitsubishi innovative Electric Vehicle (MiEV) technology is the result of four decades of engineering research. This technology is an integrated management system that continuously monitors and optimizes the flow of energy throughout your Mitsubishi vehicle. MiEV technology also creates smooth and constant acceleration as it distributes incoming energy from the regenerative brakes, and continually regulates the output from the battery. MiEV works to make sure all systems are working properly.
MIVEC Engine Technology (MIVEC)
Mitsubishi’s Innovative Valve Timing Electronic Control (MIVEC) system improves valve timing at every speed for the ultimate amount of power and fuel efficiency. This engine technology is seen in the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander and Outlander Sport, the 2015 Lancer, and many other Mitsubishi models.
INVECS Adaptive Shift Control Technology
Mitsubishi’s ground-breaking INVECS Adaptive Shift Control software adapts transmission behavior to the various driving conditions. Using advanced electronic programming, INVECS picks up your driving habits and responds by alternative shift points accordingly. As a result, your Mitsubishi vehicle knows how you drive and makes the most out of your driving experience.
Active Stability and Traction Control (ASC)
Active Stability and Traction Control1 is a standard feature found in most Mitsubishi vehicles, as it helps you maintain control in less-than-ideal driving conditions, and during emergency maneuvers. As it uses a series of sensors, ASC constantly monitors your available traction. If a wheel begins to slip, ASC communicates with the Anti-lock Braking System to apply brakes to the wheels with the most traction, helping you maintain control of your Mitsubishi in just about any driving situation.
Considering all the advances Mitsubishi has made in terms of engineering since its debut in 1917, there’s no telling what the next four decades will bring. All that’s certain is that Mitsubishi will continue to be at the forefront of technological innovation.
