Why we’re here

You might not think of Mitsubishi Motors when you think about EVs. Makes sense; we only have one PHEV in Canada. But globally, we’ve been at this since the 1970s. In fact, Mitsubishi was the first automaker in the world to mass-market an EV.

Our EV history


Mitsubishi released the i-MiEV in multiple markets around the world. The research that went into developing that vehicle revolutionized battery technology for everyone.

The PX-MiEV concept introduced a plug-in hybrid system that is now used in the Outlander PHEV; it employs both series and parallel technologies to maximize on-road performance while minimizing fuel consumption.

Why mention this?

Because we know what’s involved in making and switching to EVs.

There are a lot of factors that go into thinking about your vehicle, and we can help you sort that out.

The reality is you might not be in an EV headspace yet, and that’s fine. Canada is a big country. Range and charging availability are important considerations. So, we get that gas vehicles still make sense; it’s why we make them. But if you’re curious about what’s out there and how it all works, you can trust that we know what we’re talking about.

What’s next in EVs for us?

By 2030, our vehicle lineup in Canada will be renewed and expanded. While we’ll still offer gas vehicles, our plan is to offer a selection of hybrids, plug-in hybrids and battery electrics.
