Mitsubishi to Double Production of Outlander Plug-In Hybrid

After fixing the battery issues, Mitsubishi is all set to double the production of Outlander Plug-in hybrid. Early last month there have been a couple of separate fire incidents that cast a shadow over Mitsubishi’s two electric vehicles, the i-MiEV minicar and the Outlander Plug-In Hybrid.

The Japanese automaker who solved the issue before in a short span of time plans to increase production of Outlander Plug-In hybrid to 4,000 units per month, double that of early estimates. The production of plug-in Outlander was stopped last month after a dealer reported a fire incident in Yokohama, Japan.

Though nobody was hurt in the incident, the company immediately stalled production and issued a recall to deal with the issues. The cause for the fire incident was the result of a new screening process on the battery manufacturer’s production line. The process introduced a defect to the battery’s internal structure, which allowed microscopic contaminents to affect the battery’s performance.
