Mitsubishi Teases Outlander Plug-In Hybrid Coming This Fall

Mitsubishi is only the second global volume carmaker to sell a plug-in electric car in the U.S., but battery electric minicars like its 2012 ‘i’ won’t be a high-volume segment any time soon–if ever.

The company sells far more Outlander crossover utilities than ‘i’ electric cars, so the launch of the Outlander Plug-In Hybrid model at this fall’s Paris Motor Show is eagerly anticipated.

Now Mitsubishi has teased a few details of that car, releasing a ghosted cutaway drawing of the vehicle’s powertrain.

It’s based on the all-new 2013 Outlander, which will also be offered with a gasoline engine and, in Europe, a diesel.

The company says the Plug-In Hybrid version of the new Outlander will have permanent electric all-wheel drive–the first all-electric AWD vehicle to go into volume production–that can be supplemented by torque from the engine when required.
