    They have been saying it would be coming for years. They will do well if it does show up.

    At last!

    That should be at least 3 more for our Drive Electric Week Ride & Drive next year.
    - 2018 Leaf
    - 2018 Outlander PHEV
    - 2018 Pacifica (Stop sale means nothing here)
    (Plus I'm hoping there will be a bunch of Model 3s around, and it'd be nice if mine was there.)

    I do hope they deliver on the promise this time round! I've been eying this as a replacement for my wife's car for a while (another Outlander, non the less).

    This is interesting for people that need backup power. They provide a 1,500 Watt inverter for 120VAC power. It draws directly from the traction battery. The CHAdeMO port is also present. Mitsubishi had previously said that it would be eliminated on the US model. Not only does it allow you to charge faster at DCFC stations, but it would also allow you to use a Leaf-to-Home style device when and if those are made available here with compatible AC voltages.

    The front 60kW motor-generator coupled to the ICE and transmission plus the 60kW rear motor should provide adequate all-electric performance in the city.

    It is good to see it finally arriving. Their claim that it is “the only plug-in hybrid with DC quick charging” ignores the BMW i3 REx though.

    Not enough EV range for me.

    I'd think a lot better of the Highlander if it had a 40-50 mile range like the Volt, but it will be nice to finally see this vehicle in the US.

    I'd think a lot better of the Highlander if it had a plug at all. ;)
    The Outlander could use a bigger battery too.
