Dendo Drive House | Don Robinson Mitsubishi | St. Cloud, MN
Mitsubishi recently released the Engelberg Tourer and an innovative Dendo Drive House system at Europe’s Geneva International Motor Show this spring. Highlighting the next-generation of crossover design as well as state-of-the-art eco-friendly automotive technology, Mitsubishi wowed crowds with their latest designs.
According to Mitsubishi, the Dendo Drive House (DDH) system allows drivers to use energy generated from stopping and other driving activities to power their homes. As part of the latest wave of V2H technology (vehicle-to-home), DDH uses high-tech battery storage technology and electric powertrains to help you make the most of your driving.
“DDH is a new energy ecosystem which allows owners of electric vehicles to generate, store and share energy automatically between their car and home, further enhancing the value of electric vehicles,” reads the Mitsubishi press release.
Mitsubishi also showcased the Engelberg Tourer concept vehicle, named for a ski resort in the central region of Switzerland, that uses a Twin Motor 4WD plug-in hybrid EV powertrain system. This new vehicle allows you to drive in all-weather conditions without leaving a large carbon footprint. Plus, this new concept is well-suited for the DDH technology, connecting the Engelberg to your home.

Mitsubishi recently developed a new display system capable of projecting a 56-inch image that they can actually pass through. You heard right. This holographic technology introduces a completely unique display system that may have interesting implications in the auto industry should the brand choose to implement the technology.
According to Japan Today, the Mitsubishi Electric Corporation developed the Mitsubishi Floating Display that can be used for things like digital signage, amusements, and guide signs. Although some companies have developed holograph-like technologies, this system lets you actually pass through it and penetrate it.
“There have already been displays that can show an image above a table-like device,” said technology writer Naoki Tanaka. “And, in demonstrations, images displayed by those displays were touched and penetrated through by a hand. However, because of the table-like device right below the image, it was not possible for a human to walk through the image.”
The key to this system is its complex optical system. Images are displayed in front of a half mirror (beam splitter) in midair. That means that individuals can approach images, and possibly interact with videos and virtual reality systems. Although Mitsubishi Electric is a distinct entity from Mitsubishi Motors, the brand may explore innovative technologies sometime in the future. This projector technology is set to be available commercially by 2020.
