Arrival of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Might Be Just Around the Corner

 arrival of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEVWe’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.

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Breaks 100,000 Sales

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV hasn’t even hit American pavement yet, but it’s already red hot elsewhere in the world. It’s only the fourth plug-in electric car ever to break 100,000 sales.

Currently available in Europe and Japan, it had a reported 101,900 sales through this past March, and that number continues to climb. It falls only behind the Nissan Leaf, Tesla Model S, and the Chevrolet Volt in global plug-in sales.

But, what makes Mitsubishi an even higher competitor is that while the others reached their sales with the help of the American market, Mitsubishi’s Outlander PHEV isn’t even here yet. And until last year, the U.S. was the world’s largest market for plug-ins.

Once the Outlander PHEV gets here, we should see an even greater surge in its numbers. For now, the Outlander has been quite the success overseas, becoming the bestselling plug-in hybrid in Europe. Japan had 33,741 sales of the car, showing their push for environmental improvement.

A benefit of Mitsubishi’s cars is their affordability. While many other automakers plan or are already producing plug-in hybrids, few offer them as inexpensively as Mitsubishi does.

So, when the Outlander PHEV finally arrives, will you be ready to call it yours?
