Earlier this year, 2019, Mitsubishi Motors hit a large milestone for alternative fuel vehicles everywhere. Back in April, Mitsubishi took the plug-in hybrid market by storm after selling 200,000 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV units worldwide. Sold in more than 50 countries around the world, the plug-in SUV is becoming more popular with time, but the new concept from Mitsubishi, the Engelberg Tourer, seems to be another contender for taking over the plug-in hybrid market. Whichever direction Mitsubishi Motors decides to take the company in, the automaker continues to succeed in the alternative fuel market with its newest program. In partnership with MC Retail Energy Co., Ltd. (MCRE), MMC-affiliated dealers in Japan will start offering consumers a low-price electric car charging plan, starting October 1, 2019.
Yes, it’s only in Japan for now. Depending on how well things go, the program could always make its way over here. Mitsubishi brought the Outlander PHEV to the states back in 2017 and so far it’s here to stay. If the automaker wants to continue its success in the alternative fuel market on a global scale, then expanding programs like this charging plan is the next step. It does make sense to not go global with it just yet, for two reasons. For one, a lot of plug-in hybrid and electric vehicle sales for Mitsubishi come from Europe in Japan, so setting up a special program here probably wouldn’t be much of a payoff.
Contacting all Florida electric and plug-in hybrid (PHEVs) drivers. Is your fuel low? Is your battery losing charge? Do not panic, we repeat do not panic! South Florida has realized the rise in PHEVs, hybrid, and electric vehicles (EVs) on the road, and has answered in kind. Especially in the Miami-Dade County area where close to 2.6 million people, and counting, own a hybrid or electric vehicle. With vehicles like the Mitsubishi i-Miev out on the road, and more eco-friendly cars being produced, one question comes to mind, “Where am I going to charge up?”
