Mitsubishi Lauded by Automotive Science Group

Automotive Science Group

Look out, auto industry: Mitsubishi Motors is snagging top awards left and right. This June, the Automotive Science Group honored the automaker with two prestigious awards, naming the brand the “Best All-Around Performance Brand” and the “Best Economic Performance Brand.” The 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage was also honored, earning the “Best Economic Performance Award” and the “Best 5 All-Around Performance Award.” Last month, the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander and Outlander PHEV were named “Best 5 All-Around Performance” winners as well.

The Automotive Science Group (ASG), which is a leading research company, thoroughly evaluates each brand and vehicle before bestowing its top awards. The researchers evaluate three core categories: environmental, social, and economic. This year, Mitsubishi competed against 32 other automotive companies. In testing, the Mitsubishi brand surpassed the other brands by an average of 16%, which is no small feat.

The Mirage, on the other hand, was up against even steeper competition. To be given the “Best Economic Performance Award,” the car had to outcompete 1,663 other vehicles. Remarkably, the ASG declared that the Mirage “holds the smallest life-cycle carbon footprint of any conventional powertrain.” The small car was also given the “Best 5 All-Around Performance Award” for its exceptional value, beating out 351 other vehicles to be named among the top five.

Mitsubishi Autonomous Technology to Get Rocket Boost

When you are relaxing at the wheel, enjoying a fully-autonomous Mitsubishi vehicle in the future, you’ll have missile technology to thank.


Mitsubishi has its hand in all sorts of diverse industries. In addition to making extraordinary SUVs like the Mitsubishi Outlander, the automaker also makes rockets and missiles.


Most people are familiar with the notion of a guided missile. Modern-day, high-tech missiles reach their target by means of a guidance system that can include all sorts of technologies. Missiles manufactured by Mitsubishi use millimeter-wave radars, sonar, sensors and cameras to achieve success.


Mitsubishi has recently announced that it will be taking the systems that it uses in its missiles and using them to enhance Mitsubishi autonomous technology. As one can imagine, the technology is quite easily applicable to use in road vehicles.


As Popular Mechanics relates, the fact that Mitsubishi has all of the tech “in-house” means it shouldn’t take too long at all before we see Mitsubishi vehicles arrive at market bearing this super high-tech tech.
