Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Finally Hits U.S. Shores

Mitsubishi has spent years expanding the lineup of its popular Outlander nameplate. The standard Outlander is a hit with large families, and the Outlander Sport offers an even more affordable, smaller, and sportier alternative. However, the Outlander Plug-In Hybrid has been evading North American shores for some time, with Mitsubishi claiming the delay is due to wanting to ensure the Outlander PHEV is a high-quality product for its U.S. buyers. As of January 2018, the American Outlander PHEV has finally arrived stateside.

The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is unique for one reason: it is an affordable full-size SUV with a plug-in hybrid powertrain. There are virtually no competitors in its segment, especially when you factor in its price point, which means that mainstream families are able to participate in the green car segment in a way they never have before. The Outlander PHEV has already achieved cult status over in Europe.
