That is what happened earlier this year as Mitsubishi Motors UK invited dealers to take part in something special called, the ‘Truck King Battle’. While the name sounds like a testing car versus car but it was a different kind of battle.

For some time now, Mitsubishi has been at the forefront of design and effectively creating their own niche. Nothing says that more than the Mitsubishi Hybrid SUV Concept, The Engelberg Tourer 4×4, which they revealed at the Geneva Motor Show.

Originally founded in 1870 as a shipping firm, Mitsubishi only started manufacturing cars from 1917. The first automobile ever built was based on a Fiat design (the Tipo 3) and was named the Mitsubishi Model A, but due to the excessive costs of manufacturing them all by hand, only 22 were ever built.
