Or do you think they meant August 2018
Oh wait, it was supposed to be October........2016
http://insideevs.com/i-miev-done-in-us- ... v-delayed/Mitsubishi i-MiEV Done In US. And The Outlander PHEV? Yupe, It’s Delayed. Again. Still.
The putzes remain in charge. At this point, I kind of wonder if anyone cares. Tthere will be Escape and Buick (Volt-based) PHEV CUVs in the next two years or so. Talk about throwing away your early mover advantage.. . . We have learned over the years (since ~2013ish), the Mitsubishi USA website listing for the Outlander PHEV of course means nothing, as everyone in the US knows that the plug-in Outlander as been delayed by our count at least 7 times since 2013…and shortly to be 8 times. The most recent promise was for a Summer 2017 arrival.
However, Mitsubishi rep Erica Rasch when noting the i-MiEV’s demise, managed to sneak in the note that Outlander PHV would indeed launch this year (whatever that means), and arrive at Mitsu dealers nationwide “during the first quarter of 2018“. We guess this was meant as a positive?
In our books, Mitsubishi has cried wolf once too many times in the US on the Outlander PHEV’s arrival, so we will only believe sales/introduction targets for the popular (everywhere else) plug-in utility vehicles, when we physically see the first Outlander PHV on a US dealer’s lot for sale.
