In 2021, Mitsubishi made a major update to its Eclipse Cross. The iconic SUV has always had a fan base, but the updated model took the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross to a new level of style and quality.

Triton fans rejoice - the wait is almost over. The release of the 2024 Mitsubishi Triton is just around the corner, and it looks like Mitsubishi pulled no punches with the latest iteration of the iconic ute.

The popularity of electric vehicle technology has reached critical mass - no longer a niche class of vehicle, it's become a major consideration for the vast majority of Kiwis when deciding to buy their next car.

All-New Mitsubishi Triton 2024

New Zealand's love affair with utes knows no bounds. A call back to our rural roots, utility vehicles have evolved alongside our country, ingraining their presence into Kiwi culture.

Since its implementation in April 2022, the Clean Car Discount Scheme (CCD) has allowed thousands of Kiwis to not only be incentivised to lower their carbon footprint but also dip their toes into the latest generation of electric vehicle technolog

There’s no doubt that over the last decade we’ve started seeing a major shift in the automobile industry. Electric cars have really hit their stride.

Electrical Vehicle Technology has come a long way in the last decade, and the Next Gen Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV sits on the cutting edge of this continued evolutio

PHEV technology has gone from strength to strength over the years. In its present state, it is at a minimal compared to its combustion engine counterparts, and often even outperforms them.

As we head into the latter half of 2022, it's time to look in the rearview mirror at what has been an incredible year for Mitusbishi's Outlander.

Over the past decade, Sports Utility Vehicles (SUVs) have become a popular choice for drivers.

The conversation surrounding electric vehicles in New Zealand continues to heat up.

The topic of greenhouse emissions and greenhouse gases is becoming more and more prevalent in our global discourse.

It's pretty clear by now that electric vehicle technology is going to play an increasingly important role in the automotive industry.

The electric vehicle revolution is here. Every year that goes by, we are witnessing a higher adoption curve of transportation that takes advantage of electric vehicle technology.

Every year we inch closer to an all-electric vehicle future across the world.

As 2021 draws to a close, we find ourselves looking to the future with one thing for certain - electric vehicles are going to play a larger role in our daily lives.

Electric vehicles are seeing increasing adoption from New Zealanders.

We’re so excited to welcome you back as Auckland has moved to Alert Level 3 from today, Wednesday, 22nd September. As always, we will continue to responsibly and safely do business and look after our customers and our staff.

When it comes to news in the automotive world, nothing has dominated the headlines over the past few years more than the rise of electric cars.

In the past 5 years, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) have really hit their stride.

At Simon Lucas Mitsubishi, we’ve hit the ground running in 2021. There’s been no shortage of new offerings from Mitsubishi, some that have already hit our shores and others that we are waiting for with baited breath.

One thing that goes without saying is that Kiwis love their utes. It’s in our country's DNA to appreciate anything that is practical, reliable, durable and gets the job done.

The automotive world has been waiting with baited breath for the reveal of the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander for years.

Mitsubishi has long been famed for its sports cars, but the manufacturer has a lot of other models to choose from that don’t just cater to those who want to drive fast.

Mitsubishi Express Van - Express Yourself

The new Mitsubishi Express van is packed with functionality and flexibility features to offer you an exceptional value and is ready to get your business moving. 

We'd like to say a big and heartfelt thank-you to all our customers who, during level 3, have bought new or used vehicles from us, ordered parts and brought their vehicles in for servicing, and in general to all our loyal customers.

Let’s get through this together like we did last time. In these unprecedented times, we wanted to let you know that we will continue to responsibly and safely do business and look after our customers and our staff.

We hope that you are safe and that you and your bubble have navigated your way successfully through the past 4 weeks of Lockdown.

2020 is shaping up to be an incredible year for Mitsubishi. This July saw the new Mitsubishi Pajero Sport 2020 unveiled in Thailand.

The Mitsubishi Triton has a reputation as a hard-working utility vehicle.

Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) are increasingly popular in New Zealand as drivers look for eco-friendly options that also perform well and save fuel.

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is the missing link in the market for electric and hybrid cars.

Electric vehicles (EVs) are becoming more and more popular, with the technology supporting these vehicles dramatically improving.

For New Zealand's Four-Wheel Driving enthusiasts, it doesn't get any better than the revamped 2019 Mitsubishi Triton.

Sure, the Mitsubishi Triton is a powerful piece of equipment and, yes, it has a five-star safety rating. But the best thing about it?

The Outlander PHEV, or Petrol-Hybrid-Electric-Vehicle, is a modern SUV with a novel electric twist.

People love to know how to get the most out of their vehicle, so we gathered some economical tips to remember when you’re out and about in the Outlander PHEV.

The Mitsubishi Outlander has long been popular in New Zealand as a stylish and practical family SUV that offers the latest in luxury and safety features.

With Mystery Creek’s annual Fieldays event just under one month away (June 12th-16­­th), Mitsubishi has announced possibly their most compelling Triton 4wd offer ever – just $39,990 + delivery costs for a Triton GLX-R 4wd manual (detailed below).

We have to rave about the safety features on the Outlander PHEV that give it a five star ANCAP rating.

Not many people can say they have an app for their car. Anyone who owns the Outlander PHEV (VRX only) can.

According to Mitsubishi Motor Corporation, during its development the Outlander plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) went through various kinds of testing during development, including hot weather in USA as well as cold weather in Canada.

The Outlander PHEV has impressed a lot of people; reviewers , judges, bloggers and test-drivers alike. We thought we’d show you what a few motoring editors thought:

The more we drive THE OUTLANDER PHEV the more we discover its advanced and smart technology.

The Outlander PHEV is just better. Well, of course it is when you’re listening to Mitsubishi and its dealers. So take a look at the reviews.

Once the Outlander PHEV arrived, we couldn’t wait to hop in and put it through its paces. Our boys Gary, Anthony, Mike and Dallas took it out and this is what they had to say about it:

“It’s a game changer.”
