Mitsubishi has been reaping the benefits of a successful year for sales and growth lead by the company’s Outlander SUV and its popular variant the Outlander Sport. However, as 2015 draws to a close, Mitsubishi has to sit back down at the drawing board and decide where the company is going from here.
Recently, representatives have stepped forward to announce that not only will more SUVs be introduced to the lineup, but five Mitsubishi plug-in vehicles will be coming to the US within the next five years.
As of right now, Mitsubishi only has one electrified car on the market – the i-MiEV, which will be getting cut from the lineup as of next year. Replacing it will be the Outlander PHEV, an SUV which has enjoyed success overseas during the past four years, but has not yet hit American dealerships. This will be followed by the arrival of a much-anticipated Outlander Sport PHEV, as well as three other plug-in models. Two are reportedly electrified versions of models already in the lineup, while one is said to be a new coupe-like crossover.
Mitsubishi plug-in vehicles are part of the company’s plans to reinvigorate their lineup and continue the success they have been enjoying throughout 2015. It is also a step towards eco-friendly alternative fuel sources and innovation. Tell us what you think of this new eco-friendly turn to Mitsubishi here at Pete Moore Mitsubishi!
