Mitsubishi will offer plug-in hybrid versions of ASX, Pajero/Shogun

Article by Andrew Christian, on October 9, 2014

Mitsubishi already offers a plug-in hybrid version of the Outlander but it appears that its hybrid lineup will get even bigger as the Japanese manufacturer is planning to expand it. Next in line are the hybrid versions of the ASX compact crossover and the Pajero or the Shogun SUV.

According to CEO Osamu Masuko, Mitsubishi will introduce a hybrid version of the ASX in 2017, following the debut of the next-generation in 2016. Meanwhile, the plug-in hybrid version of the Pajero is expected in 2018.

Still, Masuko declined to give any details regarding the plug-in powertrains which will be used on the ASX and Pajero. Mitsubshi is also preparing to update the Outlander plug-in hybrid as it revealed a concept version last week at the 2014 Paris Motor Show.

Dubbed Outlander PHEV Concept-S, the new vehicle arrives with a brand new design consisting of new wraparound headlights, a brand new front grille and chromed accent mouldings.

Under the hood, the concept featured a 2.0-liter four-cylinder DOHC MIVEC petrol engine combined with two permanent magnet synchronous motors and a lithium-ion battery (12 kWh). [source: automotive news - sub. required]
