Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Finally Coming to the US

The Outlander PHEV is coming to America!

For a few years now, Mitsubishi has been marketing a plug-in hybrid EV version of its popular Outlander family in other countries, such as the United Kingdom, but the variant never made its debut on North American soil. However, following the introduction of the Outlander’s next generation sometime after 2017, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV will finally be available in the US.

The decision accompanies Mitsubishi Motors’ announcement that the company has reevaluated its plans and has chosen to more aggressively target the SUV segment. The current generation of the Outlander PHEV could arrive in the US as early as next May. In addition, the automaker expects to have released three new SUVs to the lineup by 2020, including a new unnamed crossover, the next installment of the Outlander, and a new Outlander Sport. Mitsubishi says all three vehicles will offer optional hybrid powertrains, in addition to the traditional gas setup.

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has been around for four years now, but the company is just now bringing the plug-in hybrid model to the American market. However, the decision makes sense now that Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. has turned their sights on the SUV market in an attempt to focus on their strengths.

Mitsubishi was looking fierce in November!

Mitsubishi November sales numbers have been released to the public, and the company continues to enjoy one of its best years yet due to the continued success of the Mitsubishi Outlander and the SUV’s variants. So far in 2015 Mitsubishi Motors has sold over 87,000 units year-to-date, a stark contrast to 2014’s numbers of just over 71,000 within the same time period. That’s a 23 percent increase!

In just November alone, Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. has sold 6,722 products – up 3.6 percent from November 2014’s sales numbers. The Outlander shows the biggest leap in sales from the previous year, with an increase of 69.3 percent, or sales of 1,717 units. The Outlander Sport sold even more units in November; the popular SUV saw 2,955 units sold last month.

Mitsubishi’s continued success with their SUVs has caused the company to turn its attention to the SUV segment. Over the next five years, Mitsubishi plans to introduce three new SUVs to the US lineup. Mitsubishi November sales certainly back up this decision, as the company continues to find great success.

New Outlander Design Revealed at New York Auto Show

The refreshed 2016 model of the Mitsubishi Outlander could not be debuting at a more perfect time. Mitsubishi just recently announced that they will stop producing sedans and focus solely on SUVs for the foreseeable future. It helps, therefore, that the new Outlander is an outstanding SUV.

The excellence starts on the outside, too, with an all-new design that takes many cues from the Outlander PHEV Concept-S that debuted back at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. The front grille is all-new, with an X-shaped grille and a glossy black panel for visual contrast. We saw an unofficial teaser image of the Outlander online, but the new Outlander is on display at the New York Auto Show from April 2nd onward.

The new Outlander design doesn’t just share the PHEV Concept’s skin, though. In an effort to give customers more fuel-efficiency—and more options overall—the Outlander will come as a plug-in hybrid model as well here in the States for the first time.
