2012-Mitsubishi-Outlander PHEV

Mitsubishi teased the world with its PX-MiEV plug-in crossover SUV concept back in 2009 during the Tokyo Motor Show, Unfortunately, the automaker keeps itself mum for the green-inspired vehicle to match Ford C-MAX Energi, Volvo V60 Plug-in Hybrid and other PHEVs introduced on the event. Luckily, Mitsubishi has just released a press release in the United Kingdom announcing that the brand will remain aggressive to its new, global and green generation of cars, including “the world introduction of the all-new Outlander Plug-In Hybrid EV.”

There’s no official specs outed for the new Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-In Hybrid EV, but reports said that it’ll be running front- and rear-mounted electric motor, with a possible range-extender front-placed gasoline engine. The carmaker is eying to achieve a very similar distance range of over 800 km with an equally low CO2 rating, much like the Concept PX-MiEV.

If everything will proceed on track with Paris Motor Show debut, the Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-In Hybrid EV is expected to be available by next year.
