Mitsubishi Motors Conceives Self-Sustaining Dealerships

As demonstrated by its introduction of more energy-efficient models like the Outlander PHEV, Mitsubishi Motors is invested in a more sustainable future. In fact, the automaker's commitment extends beyond the production of vehicles. It recently devised a showroom that runs on renewable energy so that its dealerships can be self-sufficient.

How Did Mitsubishi Motors Develop a More Efficient Showroom?

The Kyushu division of Mitsubishi Motors in Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan, recently installed large capacity solar panels to its Futamatase showroom. It went into operation on December 20th, 2018. The energy generated by these panels is sent to a new storage battery which aims to provide consistent power, even in the event of a natural disaster. This unit itself recycles PHEV and EV batteries, creating a salvaging process that lines up nicely with the company's green mission.

What Does This Mean for the Future of Mitsubishi?

It is said that the solar panels on the Futamatase showroom produce up to 30 kilowatts of energy while the battery unit can store up to 100 kilowatts per hour of electricity which is comparable to 10 days of power used in the average home. With this newfound technology, Mitsubishi Motors hopes to invent self-sustaining DENDO Drive Stations, a next-gen showroom, where drivers can learn and experience Mitsubishi electric models firsthand.
