We had been waiting for a long time, to the point of no longer believing. However, the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander plug-in hybrid will land at Canadian dealerships in December.
Let's say that the implementation of Bill 104 in Quebec, to increase the number of vehicles electrified on the roads of the province, probably accelerated the decision-making process. It should be said that according to Mitsubishi, the Outlander is currently the most sold rechargeable hybrid in Europe.
The 100% electric range has not been confirmed for the Canadian version of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV 2018. In Europe, where calculations of fuel consumption and electric autonomy are optimistic, a range of 54 kilometers . Three driving modes will be available: 100% electric, hybrid in series (petrol engine acting as generator) and hybrid in parallel (combination of electric motors and petrol engine).
Sold starting at $ 42,998 before transportation and preparation costs, the SE S-AWC declination includes heated front seats, power driver seat, Intelligent Key, rearview camera, Apple CarPlay integration and Android Auto, blind spot monitoring and a rear cross traffic alert. The Touring package, a $ 3,000 option, adds a sunroof, leather upholstery, power-adjustable front passenger seat, heated steering wheel and LED headlights.
The GT S-AWC, available at $ 49,998, benefits from frontal crash attenuation with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, multi-angle rearview camera , an electric tailgate and a Rockford-Fosgate audio system.
