Mitsubishi is planning to introduce a hybrid version of the Pajero sometimes in the future, as the model in question has been confirmed by the company’s president, Osamu Masuko.
The Japanese based automaker Mitsubishi is planning to offer a “greener” version of the Pajero, which will come in the shape of a hybrid. The announcement hasn’t been made in a press release but it was confirmed by the company’s president Osamu Masuko, who has recently spoken to the guys at Automotive News. According to our source, the carmaker “rebuild and improve business” in the United States and this is part of a recovery process.
Masuko said that it will be difficult for Mitsubishi to return to the 2002 levels, but the company still wants to sell 100,000 units annually by the 31st of March, 2017, in the United States. The new tie-up with Renault-Nissan is part of this strategy and this should help develop a plug-in hybrid Pajero too. The model in question could be offered in the United States. Additional details on the “green” version of the Mitsubishi Pajero are limited for the moment and will probably be announced sometimes next year, or in 2015, during a major automotive event, when a concept vehicle could be unveiled.
