Mitsubishi outlines future product lineup including an all-new electric ute


Mitsubishi plans to roll out 16 models, including nine electrified models, globally over the next five years 

Japanese automaker Mitsubishi has confirmed it will roll out 16 models globally, nine of which will be electrified to some degree.  

In what it calls its ‘growth driver’ regions – Oceania, including Australia – the brand will roll out 12 models and seven electrified models over the next five years. 

Globally, the brand is aiming to have 50 percent of sales to be electric by 2030, and 100 percent electric by 2035.

The brand’s projected models are all part of its ‘Challenge 2025’ initiative that will see a mix of ICE, HEV, PHEV and BEV products sold globally. 

What sort of electrified cars are coming for the Oceania region?

Although the cars are still very much under wraps, we do know that Mitsubishi’s local electrified lineup will include an electric pickup (likely badged as Triton), a two-row electric SUV and a two-row hybrid SUV.

Also to be included will be an electric ASX, a Mitsubishi Alliance electric vehicle, the Xpander hybrid vehicle and a hybrid MPV or van. 

What about ICE models going forward?

The Australian market is almost certain to see a next-gen ICE pickup (Triton) and large people mover, along with the Outlander-looking XFC concept, a three-row SUV and an MPV.

Mitsubishi is set to continue its petrol-powered offerings until at least 2030, where it will turn to using largely battery electric and hybrid electric systems. 

By 2035, most, if not all, of Mitsubishi’s cars will be electric-powered only. 

The Japanese brand wants to cut its CO2 emissions by 40 percent in 2030 when compared to its MY2010 emissions figures.

Mitsubishi will continue the shared use of powertrains (non-electric and electric) as part of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi partnership.

The brand will continue to work on its core technology goals of electrification, durability and reliability, four-wheel control and comfortability for its current and future range of vehicles.
