Mitsubishi recently released a Japanese series of videos on Outlander PHEV – the PHEV Premium Garage Talk, translated to English.

The first four videos, each on different topics, are already translated.

There is new website for this model too.

We are still sad that Mitsubishi will not introduce Outlander PHEV in the US in the near future (think late fall 2015), which would help to achieve higher growth of sales and market share for plug-ins.

For now, we can enjoy these videos.

Could it be that they don’t have the capacity to introduce it on the US market?

That’s one of the reasons. The other reason is that California is requiring additional battery monitoring equipment that isn’t installed on the current model. Once they develop that technology for California, it will be offered in the entire US.

Why can one state within the USA stop the rest of the nation from selling this car?

I don’t know why but these voice translations are unintentionally hilarious to me.

Agreed – and why did they need subtitles too? It seems overboard. I would have preferred just to have the subtitles.

Agreed. I don’t care for dubbed videos. I like the original language with subtitles.

So buy Christmas 2016 buyers of sub-Tesla priced BEVs and PHEVs will have the choice of:

The Leaf
BMW i3
VW E-Golf
Audi A3 Sportsback
Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV
Prius PHEV
I haven’t included the Volt, as we don’t know the specs yet, or compliance cars.

Who will choose what, and why?

I will likely go with another Leaf, but not before at least looking a the VW e-Golf. I have zero interest in anything with an ICE.

You forgot the Kia Soul EV. And Spark EV.

AFAIK both are compliance cars, hence their omission, although I have not looked into whether the Soul is to be generally available so may be in error.

More seriously I left out the Ford’s, likely because I dislike their poor packaging which tends to make me overlook them!

There is an article on ABG commenting that the Volt II seems likely to keep the central transmission tunnel.

If that is so then two US manufacturer’s out of three, with the third not in the game save peripherally with the Fiat 500, will be producing electric cars/PHEVs with seriously compromised accomodation.

I doubt that the US manufacturer’s excluding Tesla will have much luck against the competition.

I’m leaning towards the Outlander PHEV, but may change my mind if the size and specs of the 2nd Gen Volt fit my needs. I’m a little wary on what the cost of the Outlander PHEV may end up being.

A bit less than the Volt in every market where it has been released.
