What Is Mitsubishi @earth TECHNOLOGY?
Mitsubishi Drive@earth is the philosophy of being mobile and able to enjoy the different types of landscape available to us on our planet, while also being respectful of the environment. The @earth TECHNOLOGY is the technology that allows Mitsubishi to deliver on their Drive@earth promise, and includes continuously variable transmissions (or CVTs) to keep the engine running at its optimal speed and Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing Electronic Control system (or MIVEC) to control both intake valve timing and valve lift, in order to increase power output while also lowering emissions and fuel consumption. Other technologies include Auto Stop & Go (or AS&G) to automatically decrease idling time when stopped and Deceleration Energy Recovery to generate more power when the vehicle is decelerating, reducing the load on the engine when cruising and thereby improving fuel economy and reducing CO2. Mitsubishi also has Flexible Fuel Vehicles (or FFVs) that can run on gasoline and bioethanol, clean diesel engines, Plug-in Hybrid EV Systems (or PHEVs), as well as all-electric vehicles such as the i-MiEV and MINICAB-MiEV.
