Mitsubishi Motors released their next generation of electric cars to go into production at the 44th Tokyo Motor Show in late 2015 and presented the latest in the line up, the all electric eX Concept Crosover SUV.

Mitsubishi launched the long awaited 4WD Outlander PHEV in 2014 and demand was so high that Australia had to wait a little longer to see the vehicle arrive as the European and Asian markets were pre ordering vehicles in advance of production capabilities at Mitsubishi.

Again another massage for the vehicle industry in general. Note the success of Tesla Model 3 launch in March 2016 which generated over 325,000 pre-orders with deposits up front that will assist in funding the car production and reduce the vehicle market budgets.

If the price is right and the car has the range and looks, these plug in all electric and plug in hybrid cars will overtake demand the old Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) models within 10 years or so.

The eX Crossover is all electric Sports SUV with a battery range of 400km to a single charge. Mitsubishi I also working to launch the ASX PHEV in 2017 which line up with mass market vehicle releases from General Motors, Nissan, Tesla and now Ford’s Model E.
