Mitsubishi to Offer Plug-In Hybrid SUV in 2013


Mitsubishi will increase its MiEV (Mitsubishi innovative electric vehicle) lineup by adding a plug-in hybrid SUV in 2013. The plug-in hybrid SUV is inspired by the Px-MiEV concept car that made its first seen at the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show. The company has been working on this Hybrid SUV and has already reached higher development stages.

The Px-MiEV concept is powered by a hybrid powertrain comprising a 1.6 liter engine that delivers 114 hp and a top torque of 125 Nm, which works jointly with two electric motors that provide 80.5 hp and a highest torque of 200 Nm. It has the capability of moveing up to 30 miles on electric power alone.

Mitsubishi states that the vehicle offers a remarkable fuel economy figure of 2 liters per 100 km (117.6 mpg). Not just the statistic itself are courageous statement, it gets bolder when considered that it is the target set for an SUV.

Let’s hope that Mitsubishi decides to maintain the bold lines and manages to grow the technology that can keep up with the abovementioned figures.

    Dodge Nitro is my one of the favorite SUV. I love the Nitro powered cars and SUV which are so powerful and speedy for racing and special kind of task. Nitro fuel is not as good as for daily use. But lots of people are crazy about the Nitro fuel cars and trucks.

  • Mitsubishi endeavor would be a great choice for someone wanting a quintessential family hauler! I think the warranties offered by Mitsubishi endeavor are the longest in is class, which make it technically the safest and reliable car in the affordable midsized SUVs market!Mazda CX-7 has more fuel economy of 20/28 mpg compared to Endeavor's 15/21 mileage on highways,but if you want a performance powertrain which outlasts
    others, then Endeavor is your call! It moves are fabulous! The V6 engine and the automatic transmission deliver smoothe and clean moves! The ride on the pavements is comfortable! The overall performance is on par with others in its league, so what makes this sedan stand out is its 10 year warranty of 1,00,000 mile V6 engine!
