Mitsubishi Aims To Produce 2,000 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEVs Per Month

Mitsubishi ran into some battery problems earlier this year that led to it halting production of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. The non-production period lasted 5 months. However, Mitsubishi seems to now have things in order and has announced that it plans to produce 2,000 Outlander PHEVs a month to start with but ramp that up to 4,000 a month by May in order to catch up on its 18,000 vehicle backlog.

Mitsubishi is consolidating the battery and motor installation processes to also expedite manufacture and delivery of Mitsubishi Outlander PHEVs to waiting customers.

If you’re an American eagerly awaiting your Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, however, I’ve got some bad news for you: battery availability is limited and Mitsubishi is further postponing US deliveries in order to focus on orders in Japan, Europe, and elsewhere. (Ouch.)
