Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Sales Commence In Europe

Sales of the Mitsubishi Outlander plug-in hybrid have finally commenced in Europe. Production of the vehicles started in late August at Mitsubishi Motor Corporation’s (MMC) Okazaki plant in Nagoya, Japan.

The first units were available in The Netherlands, and Mitsubishi plans to sequentially launch this product throughout Europe to help cope with large demand, starting with The Netherlands and Nordic countries (e.g., Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Iceland, and Finland). Mitsubishi has actually received more than 10,000 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV orders already.

According to HybridCars, The Outlander PHEV has some decent specifications, including fuel economy up to 123 MPG! (1.9 L/100 km)

  • Maximum driving range: 519 Miles (824 km).
  • Range on battery alone: 32.3 miles (52 km).
  • The top speed is only 105 MPH, but you can’t legally drive that fast in most countries.
  • Charge time can be as little as 30 minutes (to 80% of its capacity) using CHAdeMO, or it can be fully charged in 5 hours using a normal 230 volt outlet at 10 amps.

As for North America, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV you will not be available for purchase before 2015.

“The reason for this vehicle being introduced in 2015 rather than in 2014 is because we have received overwhelming demand from Japan and Europe and the battery supply unfortunately cannot keep up with the demand,” said Mitsubishi communications representative Amanda Savercool in our September 24 update.
