We’ve been patiently awaiting the arrival of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, and it looks like that patience is about to pay off. Dealers across the United States are finally being told that they can expect the Mitsubishi plug-in hybrid crossover in their lots by February or March of 2018.
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV will be the only all-wheel-drive, plug-in hybrid crossover at the approximately $35,000 price point. Already a best-seller in Europe, American admirers of the super-green, super-capable crossover will finally be able to take the wheel.
The minute the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV hits the US market, it will become one of the most efficient SUVs available. This plug-in hybrid crossover has an all-electric range of 22 miles and 25 mpg with room for expansive improvement when the driver engages the available all-electric drive functions.*
If the arrival of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is your “PHEV-rite” piece of news this week… you might just be an auto nerd (or a fan of bad puns). In either case, visit us at Coronet Mitsubishi to see our full line-up of powerful Mitsubishi models.

Two new Mitsubishi vehicles are set to launch in the US, the Eclipse Cross and the Outlander PHEV, which the automaker believes will spark growth thanks to a new business plan designed to support sustainable growth; focusing on SUVs and electric vehicles, Mitsubishi hopes to corner the SUV market with its extensive lineup.
The Eclipse Cross is an all-new compact crossover that fits between the small Outlander Sport and the mid-size Outlander. It will launch in late 2017 in Japan, and production will start in the US in December, with the Eclipse Cross hitting US showrooms early next year. Designed to echo the Mitsubishi Eclipse, a sports coupe that ended production in 2012, the Eclipse Cross is coupe-like, with a low, sporty stance.
Mitsubishi will also bring the Outlander PHEV to the US this month. The Outlander PHEV, a plug-in hybrid version of the popular Outlander SUV, has been available in Japan for several years but has never been offered in the US before. Hybrid versions of SUVs are hugely in demand in the current market because they bring together two things that top American drivers’ want — efficiency and space.
