Mitsubishi To Add 2 More PHEVs To Lineup – Pajero & ASX
The Mitsubishi ASX compact crossover and Pajero/Shogun SUV are both coming in plug-in versions, according to Mitsubishi’s CEO.
Mitsubishi CEO Osamu Masuko confirmed that Outlander PHEV was “well accepted by the market,” and paved the way for new models with all-electric capability.
Sadly, the new plug-in hybrids from Mitsubishi are at least one and a half years away from launching:
“the conventionally powered ASX replacement will launch 2016 and the plug-in version will go on sale in Europe and other global markets in 2017. The Pajero replacement and its plug-in version are likely to arrive in 2018”
JATO Dynamics data indicates that in the first half of 2014, sales of 8,953 plug-in Outlanders helped to double sales of Outlander, which almost exceeded ASC in Europe:
“The ASX is Mitsubishi’s best-selling model in Europe, with 22,389 units sold through August, just ahead of 20,810 sales of the Outlander, according to data from JATO Dynamics. The company sold 2,840 units of the Pajero through August.”
