46Mitsubishi reveals mid-term plans including redesigned pickup, SUV and new PHEVs

Struggling automaker Mitsubishi seems adamant that it will soldier on across the globe. Just last week, we told you how the brand would begin selling a pair of rebadged, Korean-built, Renault-Samsung sedans in the US market, and now comes an official statement from Mitsubishi about a mid-term business plan called "New Stage 2016."

7Mitsubishi promises Outlander plug-in hybrid for Paris *UPDATE

We've been waiting since the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show – when Mitsubishi first talked about the PX-MiEV, a plug-in CUV concept – for some sort of real-world plug-in Outlander. It looks like we're finally going to get our wish during the 2012 Paris Motor Show this fall. Today, Mitsubishi released the not-very-revealing teaser image you see above, and it says the plug-in Outlander will "share its architecture with the soon-to-be-introduced New Outlander's ICE versions."

9Mitsubishi working on light-duty electric truck for farmers, contractors

Mitsubishi has said it wants to have over half of its sales to be electric vehicles by 2020, so rumors of an all-electric truck from the Japanese automaker make an awful lot of sense. That's just what the Nikkei is reporting, saying the light-duty truck is due some time in fiscal 2012. The truck will be Mitsubishi's third EV, following the i-MiEV (also known as the "i"), that has been on sale since 2009, and the Minicab-MiEV (pictured, more details here), a vehicle made in partnership with Suzuk

18Say what? Mitsubishi looking to plug-ins to make up 50% of sales by 2020

Mitsubishi's i-MiEV first rolled out for Japanese fleet sales in 2009, and it's been on sale to the general public in Japan for 18 months. Since then, the car has become available in several European markets and even picked up a 500-unit order from the government of Estonia. Overall sales have been reported to top 11,000 units. Not a bad start for a little five-door jellybean, and Mitsubishi has stated that they expect the i-MiEV (or just 'i' for the upcoming U.S. model) to become profitable wit

22Did Mitsubishi cancel EVO to focus on electric vehicles?

Mitsubishi has lit a fire under the enthusiast community by announcing that the automaker is planning to send the Evolution out to pasture in order to focus solely on electric vehicle and hybrid development. Currently, the Evolution is an all-wheel drive terror best suited for locking horns with the Subaru WRX STI, and while rumors had arisen that the Japanese automaker was working on a new hybrid system for the vehicle, Gauy Eusegi, the company's global product director, effectively put those w

13Report: Future Mitsubishi models may each get their own EV variant

Word on the web is that Mitsubishi is bracing for the electrification of the automobile in a big way. According to Motor Trend, the Japanese automaker is in the midst of developing all of its future products so that they easily support an EV drivetrain or an internal combustion get up. That line of thinking seems to mesh well with the rumors of the upcoming hybrid crossover from Mitsubishi. The lumbering beast will supposedly take plenty of cues from the PX-MiEV that showed up at the 2009 Tokyo

1Report: Nissan, Mitsubishi will work together on small, possibly electric, cars

Following reports that Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) will open a new, efficient global small car plant in Thailand, rumors that MMC and Nissan are talking about a 50-50 joint company in 2011 are a lot more interesting.
