Mitsubishi is showing no less than 6 Outlander PHEVs at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.

In fact, the number of Outlander PHEVs is so high that our man on the show floor says that Mitsubsihi’s stand is completely dominated by the plug-in hybrid SUV.

To us, this shows how serious Mitsubishi is in promoting the Outlander PHEV.  And it reiterates Mitsubishi’s long-standing commitment to plug-in vehicles.

The Outlander PHEV clearly Mitsubishi’s hottest plug-in vehicle, but unfortunately it won’t be available in the US until 2015.

For a full rundown on how the Outlander PHEV performs (including specs), check out this first drive review.

Wait, it’s a PHEV. My European brethren keep telling me a PHEV will not make it in Europe.
OK, I couldn’t resist….
Bottom line we are spoiled with choices world wide. No one model fits all scenarios. Give me BEVs, PHEVs, EREVs, Flow cells! Bring it! Every EV/plug-in brings us closer to a new solution.

It cries out for a larger battery option. Then, you could practically sign me up.

Is that a snorkel in the last picture? I hope that battery case is sealed tight, if you’re going to be submerging it!

Looks more like the exhaust pipe to prevent it to get ripped off when driving over things.

It’s a snorkel, if you get water in the engine your stuffed too, fortunately the battery doesn’t need a snorkel as it doesn’t need any air so can be properly sealed.

I think a PHEV is a very sensible option for a car that is meant for off road travel, miles from the nearest petrol station or mechanic. 2 drive trains, twice as likely to make it out the other end. Would be good if they did a solar kit for limp home situations – charge by day limp by night, a 20 mile walk through the desert for petrol is not my idea of fun.
