Mitsubishi to lead Alliance PHEV development

Progress hasn’t come as fast as once expected, but Mitsubishi Motors now has more solid and tenable plans to both improve the pure electric range of its plug-in hybrid system, and add the technology to models beyond the Outlander.

Mitsubishi Mirage, Lancer: Company accepts need for passenger cars

Mitsubishi’s budget Mirage light hatch is almost certain to move upmarket in its next generation, onto an alliance platform shared with the Renault Clio and European Nissan Micra. Additionally, the company hasn't ruled out re-introducing the Lancer, which ceased production for western markets at the end of last year. This business case seems less assured than the Mirage, however.

Toyota Australia: People don't want plug-in hybrids

Toyota Australia is in no hurry to bring plug-in hybrid vehicles Down Under, arguing punters want the "normality" offered by its current approach to electrification. As announced last week, the brand will expand its current hybrid range from five to 10 vehicles by 2020 in Australia, as it looks to capitalise on the momentum created by the strong-selling Corolla and Camry hybrids.
