Wallpaper Wednesday: 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

DEC 27 2017 BY MARK KANE 15

Wallpaper Wednesday, featuring the U.S. version of the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander.

The just now arriving (at least to North America) 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV starts at an MSRP of $34,595 (after the federal tax credit and destination charge it will be $29,699).

Despite the Outlander PHEV being late to the U.S. party, it still should prove to be a decent plug-in hybrid (12 kWh battery and around 22 miles of all-electric range) – so we expect decent sales in 2018 … provided of course that Mitsu is up to task of supplying the popular model.

Some features are unique to the market – like the 1,500 watt, 120V AC power outlets located in the rear seat and cargo area, supplied from the drive battery.

If you are one of those awaiting the arrival Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, then perhaps this new set of wallpapers featuring the Japanese SUV will be to your liking.

Only tows 1500 lbs with no option for more 🙁

I thought the Outlander PHEV was now believed to be delayed yet again, until spring?

Their website is now publishing incentives for 2018 model year.

$2000 factory rebate
0% for 60 months
$289/mo for 36 months $4088 due at signing

With $5836 from Federal tax credit and $2000 factory rebate, you’re looking at base model starting at under $27,000. That’s Volt territory.

It’s a shame it’s only got a 12kWh pack. I’m probably going to hold out for a more electrically dominant update.

If you look closely at the 0% APR deal, it expires on 1/2. I honestly don’t know how that’ll work because none of the Bay Area dealers I’ve looked at have any inventory to speak of and only Concord has any mention of it at all (a phone number to call and order it).

For as long as it took to get into the US there was no battery upgrade?!?!?!?!?!?

A search of cars.com shows zero inventory in the USA
With nothing to buy why even publish the incentive?

Since the Concord Mitsubishi dealer only has a phone number to place an order, does anyone have any experience with dealer orders? I’m reluctant to place a dealer order because I’ve always paid less than MSRP (sometimes even less than invoice) for my cars and I’m not about to change that. My sense is that you pay MSRP or more for dealer orders.

According to the Mitsubishi web site this morning there are 11 in the LA area – 2 at Puente Hills Mitsubishi and 9 at Mitsubishi Corona. Let’s hope other dealers around the country get well stocked.

Awesome. That deserves an article in itself, it has finally arrived in the US. 🙂

I wonder how many has arrived and if someone has bought one yet.

I just got off the phone with the Mitsu Dealership in Concord and he said that they “just left Japan a week ago” and that they should be on the lot by mid next month. We’re not talking 1 or 2 either. He told me several different colors of the GT trim. Looks like it’s really for real this time!

The listed fuel economy is terrible for a 41xx lb PHEV, with such a weak engine and electric motor, only 25mpg gas only. I was expecting 35mpg. The listed AER is also short for 12kWh battery. If they make 9 kWh usable, should be around 30 miles (40+ miles under the best condition).

Other than that the specs look perfect.

As a comparison, my C-MAX Energi has similar engine and motor, 3899lb curb weight, and gets 38mpg EPA (average 48mpg real life).

Some UK driver reported 52 imperial mpg (42 US mpg) for gas only, which is quite reasonable.

The advertised lease offer is pretty disappointing. It doesn’t look like Mitsu is passing any of the tax credit back to the lesee. That’s in stark contrast to Nissan’s deal when I leased the Leaf back in 2013.

I put down a deposit for a 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV August 19th. I got a call from the dealership last week. It should make it to the Port of Baltimore January 8th and the dealership by January 22nd.
