Mitsubishi Lancer 2017 has been confirmed by the CEO of Mitsubishi, Osamu Masuko. From the confirmation, we could find out the information about the big chance for the company in order to redesign this car to complete the demand in the SUV and crossover market. The newest information also gives us about an expectation that there will be some other models to offer. This car is still the cooperation between Mitsubishi and Renault Nissan Alliance. The big probability is perhaps the car will get a new name.
Mitsubishi Lancer 2017 is still less informed by some reliable sources which means that there is no reliable information available to tell especially for its redesign concept. Learning from the latest rumors, the company is strongly suggested to give two different concepts for the styling of this new generation. It means that the car is quite possible to get some details borrowed from Outlander PHEV concept S and also the latest Renault Latitude concept. It looks like that the car will go with the same platform and body lines as Latitude but of course there will be some differences when the company combine it with the PHEV Concept S for the front end. Well, it is only a suggestion for Mitsubishi Lancer 2017 and the decision depends on the company. We think that when there is a combination built from two concepts, it is possible if the car will go with more distinctive design to make it stands out among others. This way will be helpful in order to give something new and special but still recognizable for the new Mitsubishi Lancer 2017.
We have heard about the plan from the official that they have big intention in order to introduce all-new Mitsubishi Lancer 2017 in the American market and of course there should be something new but it should be better enough around the engine than before. Perhaps, the company will go with the same one drivetrain configuration that is used by 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-In Hybrid which means the car could go with gasoline four-cylinder 2.0 liter that is paired to twin electric motor system and also 12 kWh lithium-ion battery pack to deal with the all-electric driving range for about 35 miles while 500 miles for the gasoline-electric range. Some straight gasoline engine could be the options but we have no details to tell.
Based on the latest rumors, it is quite possible if this compact sedan could be launched before the end of 2016 for Mitsubishi Lancer 2017.
