Mitsubishi UK ha announced the release of the Outlander PHEV SUV, and promised it by June 2013!

While fuel efficiency and pricing information hasn’t been released yet for the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV in the UK, there is a page on the Outlander PHEV Forum that has pricing news udpates. We’ll be watching it to see when pricing info is available.

Lance Bradley, the managing director of Mitsubishi Motors U.K said that the vehicle could “perhaps” achieve 150 MPG at best.

On the Japanese test cycle, the Outlander PHEV achieved 125 MPG.

According to Bradley, the pricing will be ‘highly competitive.’ He went on to say that the Outlander PHEV is the first 4wd hybrid plug-in SUV that seats seven people – which is up for debate, because everywhere else only gets a 5 seat version of the plug-in hybrid Outlander

“This will put future technology in the driveways of mums and dads today,” Paul Unerkov, Mitsubishi Australia vice-president, said. “Over a year, we aim to sell them in the thousands, not the hundreds,” he said. It is expected to go on sale in Australia in 2013, and the United States in 2014. Unkerox said that the price will range from $40,000 to $50,000 AUD, which is $41,000 to $53,000 USD.
