Mitsubishi Promises Outlander Plug in Hybrid for Paris
It was in 2009 that Mitsubishi first talked about the PX-MEV, a plug-in CUV concept at the Tokyo Motor Show and now the automaker has released a not so revealing teaser that says the plug-in Outlander will “share its architecture with the soon-to-be-introduced New Outlander’s ICE versions. Mitsubishi claims that the Outlander will “be the first permanent 4WD electric car in series production.” The New Outlander PHEV will have three drive modes and a total driving range of 800 km (497 miles) and emit fewer than 50 grams of CO2 per kilometre. The drive models are 4WD: Pure (all-electric drive), Series (electric drive, supported by the gas generator) and Parallel (ICE engine supported by Twin Motor 4WD). If Mitsubishi can get the cost comparatively low it could carve a niche for itself but it looks like the company is only going to sell the new Outlander PHEV in Europe.
