Almost 20% Of Mitsubishi Sales In Europe Are Plug-Ins; Outlander PHEV Sales Exceed Regular Outlander


Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV - Not Coming To The US In 2014, And Probably Not in 2015 Either

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

A few years ago, Mitsubishi set a goal of 20% plug-in electric car sales by 2020.

Well, in Europe Mitsubishi has almost reached the target five years ahead of schedule.

2014 fiscal year ended in March with Mitsubishi reporting total European sales at 153,747 vehicles, out of which 44,963 Outlanders.

Outlander is available in a plug-in hybrid version and that is the version that’s most popular with 25,266 sales! Regular Outlander didn’t even reach 20,000.

Outlander PHEV accounted for 16.4% of all Mitsubishi sales in Europe.

On top of that, the Japanese company can add at least a few hundred i-MiEVs.

In Japan, Outlander PHEV had some 8,629 sales in the most recent fiscal year.

    Now they could slaughter the competition by raising the engery density of the batteries from 109watts w/L to 160 watts/l or 200w/l a and jack up electric car production.

      That would be nice. But no one even competes with them as is.

      Release in the USA already!

    Imagine if GM put the Voltec drive train in a sleek CUV. They would have had much bigger sales than they did with the Volt.

      I agree, even if they charged $33,000 for it.

    Excellent news and kudos to Mitsu.
    However, you should fix the headline: 16.6% is not “almost 20%”. 19% would be, or 18% at a stretch.
    How about “More than 1 in 6 Mitsubishi sales in Europe are plug-ins” instead? Just as impressive.
