Europe: Mitsubishi to show Outlander Plug-in Hybrid EV at Paris – first 4WD electric car in production

At the 2012 Paris Motor Show this September, Mitsubishi will show its Outlander Plug-in Hybrid EV. Neither an adaptation of an existing internal combustion engine (ICE) powered vehicle, nor a dedicated plug-in hybrid tech showcase, the Outlander PHEV will share its architecture with the soon-to-be-introduced ICE-powered Outlander range.

Mitsubishi claims that it will be the first mainstream car from a major manufacturer envisaged from the outset with built-in provisions for either ICE or PHEV powertrains.

The SUV will be MMC’s first plug-in hybrid car, based on an EV instead of the other way around. You see, Mitsubishi didn’t join the hybrid party thrown by Toyota and Honda – they went straight to EVs with the i-MiEV. It will also be the first permanent 4WD electric car in series production, according to MMC.
