Mitsubishi president Osamu Masuko recently spoke with Germany's Auto Motor und Sport about its SUVs. Until now, Mitsubishi has not produced any hybrid vehicles as it has focused on developing pure battery electric vehicles. However all that could soon change as Masuko told the magazine that the company's SUVs would be hybridized over the next four years. Since Mitsubishi has not shown any hybrid technology of its own to date, it's unknown if they are developing something in-house or licensing technology from another company. Given Mitsubishi's past relationship with Chrysler, the possibility of licensing the Two-mode system developed with GM, BMW and Daimler is one possibility. Toyota has already licensed its hybrid technology to Nissan for the Altima, so that's another possibility.
