Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Might Undercut Pacifica Hybrid by $10K

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Might Undercut Pacifica Hybrid by $10K

The Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-In Hybrid has been available in other parts of the world for quite some time and has been a success, selling more than 100,000 units overall.

Billed as the second best selling plug-in hybrid in the world, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is set to make its U.S. debut in 2018. And when it does, it’ll be aiming right at another mainstream plug-in utility vehicle, the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid. The minivan has impressed with excellent driving dynamics and performance, but it is on the pricey side, coming in at over $40,000 before incentives and destination.

According to product planners in the U.S. and Canada, Mitsubishi is taking Chrysler’s price tag into consideration when bringing their crossover over. They’re aiming to bring their car to market around the $31,000 mark, or roughly $10,000 cheaper than the Pacifica Hybrid.

Of course, Mitsubishi’s product planners wouldn’t elaborate on whether that was the before incentives and destination, but it paints a picture of how Mitsubishi intends to continue its plug-in success in North America.

The Outlander PHEV has an all-wheel-drive setup, with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder handling the front axles and two electric motors assisting it. Based on a drive last year at Mitsubishi’s HQ in Japan, we found it to be an interesting plug-in, capable of about 30 miles or 50 kilometers on a single charge.
