What The Heck Is Going On In These Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Videos
Seriously, if you know what is happening please let us know.
Mitsubishi Japan has been known to put out some “interesting” promotional spots around the i-MiEV…usually hiring some very over-the-top European pitchmen to sell them – but what were they thinking in the video below?
Once again, the pitchman has the jawline, the booming voice, the (much-in-demand) Outlander PHEV… but the ladies wig? (0:45)
Despite this videos best effort to have us not want to buy the electric Outlander, we still anxiously await Mitsu’s next plug-in vehicle. Where else will you be able to find a 4WD, 25 mile – 80 MPGe (EPA estimated) SUV for less than $40,000 in 2014?
The Outlander PHEV was originally scheduled for a January launch in the US, the deadly combination of unexpectedly high demand (over 15,000 backorders) and a battery production problem that shutdown the line for several months has pushed back the expected retail launch of the extended range SUV to late summer of 2014.
