Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-In Hybrid: Van Model For Europe, But Still A Year Away For U.S.

The Mitsubishi Outlander is a top seller at Jim Shorkey Mitsubishi in North Huntingdon, as the crossover SUV offers all the safety features, cargo space, and style drivers want in a road warrior. Fortunately, this makes the wait for the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, the plug-in hybrid, to unveil in the US much easier.

And while the plug-in hybrid version has already been on sale in Europe for a few months now, Mitsubishi is already adding another variant to the range—a van, the Outlander PHEV ‘4work’. Though not in a traditional purpose-built goods hauler, it directly targets business users.

For its design, Mitsubishi has removed the rear seats, put blanking panels over the rear windows, and covered the rear load space in a tough rubber coating. Further, it’s relaxing to drive, has a punchy drivetrain, and comes with the same benefits as the car on which it’s based–alloy wheels, cruise control, and electronic all-wheel drive for bad weather.

Unfortunately for us, getting our hands on a Mitsubishi Outlander plug-in of any sort—let alone a van—is still some time away. Good thing, we still have the Mitsubishi Outlander.
