Mitsubishi likely isn’t the first company that comes to mind when you think of electrified vehicles. But don’t forget; they pioneered an all-electric car long before they were fashionable. And now, they’ve added a plug to their biggest SUV. This is the all-new Outlander PHEV. I wish I had the entertaining video to show you, but I attended the mini-musical that was this vehicle’s NY Auto Show debut…in 2016. Hampered by regulatory issues and battery constraints, this Outlander took 5 years to cross the ocean. But it’s here now and ready to provide Mitsu’s best-seller with an electrified option. How do they do it? They’ve placed a battery pack under the passenger compartment and connected it to 1 electric motor to drive the front wheels and a 2nd to drive the rear.
