The next generation Mitsubishi ASX will be available with either a gasoline engine or a hybrid drive, the automaker wrote in a press release. It also confirms that the car will run on the CMF-B platform, which, for example, mounts the new Renault Clio or Captur.
View the published engines, about which you will find all the details in the table, copied here in the pickup, from a one-liter three-cylinder to the plug-in hybrid.

In the case of hybrids, the automaker doesn’t mention the number of gears in the automatic transmission, but rather describes it as “multi-mode.” So it is likely that it is the so-called multi-mode automatic transmission that Renault is using.
It has both electric motors stored in it; One main, motive, and the other small, auxiliary. It mainly acts as a starter alternator and also for comparing the gears of individual gears when shifting.
There are two gears for the main electric motor and four gears for the internal combustion engine, with the fact that they partially overlap in the range of driving speeds. The characteristics of the internal combustion engine are so long, that the hybrid can drive with good consumption and at higher speeds. To reduce electricity consumption, there is also a second gear for the electric motor, which sometimes ranges around 60 km / h.
We can also consider that an ASX plug-in hybrid, such as the Captur Plug-In, will have a multi-element rear axle for mounting the battery and fuel tank, while other versions will have a simpler crank axle.
But back to what we know for sure. The use of the CMF-B platform eliminates the electric all-wheel drive, and all movements will be provided by the front wheels. The car will be manufactured at Renault’s Valladolid plant in Spain.
“Customer requirements in the European small SUV segment are typically diverse, so it is important that our product offering is well diversified,” said Frank Kroll, Mitsubishi’s European division head.
The show is scheduled for September this year and sales will start in the spring of 2023.
