Signs of life at Mitsubishi

The Japanese brand’s product lineup has never been so lean since they set up shop in Canada, and we’re wondering what the future holds for them.

The Eclipse, Galant and Endeavor were all retired over the last year, which isn’t catastrophic since they never sold in large quantities. That leaves the Lancer sedan and hatchback (now in its seventh year without a redesign), the RVR, the Outlander and the electric i-MiEV.

The Lancer Evolution’s future is also unclear at this point, as it doesn’t fit well with the company’s pursuit of environmental cleanliness.


In short, Mitsubishi showrooms are pretty quiet these days. However, the 2014 Outlander, which should be on sale next year, is a ray of sunshine in their cloudy sky. A plug-in hybrid version of the next Outlander will be produced, equipped with a 2.0L engine and electric motors at both ends. In EV mode, it should boast a range up to 55 km and accelerate up to 120 km/h. According to Mitsubishi, it should deliver a fuel consumption average of 1.6L/100km, which sounds unrealistic, but we’ll see when the time comes.
