Rather than visit the North American International Auto Show in Detroit this week, Mitsubishi decided to skip it altogether, and instead hold a private event last Thursday evening.
At that event, Mitsubishi Motors North America gave a sneak peek at the US version of the Outlander Plug-in Hybrid EV.
Ken Konieczka, VP of Sale Operations, said the 2016 Outlander PHEV will go on sale in August in the USA – the non-PHEV version went on sale last July.
Konieczka and other executives avoided providing specific details about the plug-in crossover under the guise that some details were still to be determined. We do know that there will be no CHAdeMO available, so that could be in an effort to provide the Outlander at a very competitive price.
The Outlander that was on display was shipped back to Japan right after the event for further development.
