Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

Order books in the UK are now open for the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.  First deliveries will take place in May.

Price after the UK's £5000 plug-in vehicle grant: £28,249

That converts to $47,012 USD, which doesn't give us an accurate gauge of US pricing, but it's a start.

Before jumping into our US price prediction, let's first point out that the £28,249 after-grant price is for the entry-level GX3h Outlander PHEV.  A version we likely won't get in the US.

Two more upscale Outlander PHEVs are offered in the UK:

GX4h - £32,899  ($54,714 USD)

GX4hs - £34,999   ($58,207 USD)

All UK-specific pricing takes into account the UK's £5000 plug-in vehicle grant.

Still, we're no closer to knowing the Outlander PHEV's US price, but wait, there's more:

"In a break from convention which usually sees hybrid vehicles attract a significant premium over other models in the range, the entry-level PHEV is priced exactly the same as the diesel GX3 auto."

"Other hybrid models (GX4h and GX4hs) attract a £1000 premium over diesel options, but Mitsubishi says this is due to their added specification."

Reports Autocar.

Okay, so the Outlander PHEV is priced identically to the diesel Outlander in the UK (in base trim at least), so where does that get us in terms of US pricing?

Seeing as though Mitsubishi doesn't offer a diesel Outlander in the US (and only offers diesel and PHEV Outlanders in the UK), we're likely no closer to determining a US price for the PHEV version, but perhaps the graphic below, which shows US base MSRP for all Outlander models will help us out.
