I would like to have the fast charge option on a volt. They go out in the morning, then they are on gas for the rest of the day. the cars never charge to full till they come back at night. the drivers want to know why they have to drive this stupid car, that we are on there ass to plug in when they park.

The Mitsubishi looks great, the 3 being tested in Orange county at the RD center work well . I think that for the main steam, a mid size all wheel drive SUV that seats 7 is a home run. this truck will do big things. I hope there is enough of them.
It will be 5 seat with the same boot volume as a normal 5 seat outlander, but not the extra 2 seats of the 7 seater.
Small but important details seem quite improved, initial acceleration, noise and vibration. Its kinda like the got they memo to make the car comparable to what the brits/dutch were trading in, as opposed to just being another Outlander.
(Brits were trading in company lease cars like Land Rover etc.)
and no, in general they look so similar to a the normal Outlander (of same model year) that the main way to tell its a PHEV is if there is a charge/petrol port) on both sides.
