2015 Mitsubishi Triton hybrid unlikely to be a plug-in

The new-generation Mitsubishi Triton will initially go on sale with a diesel drivetrain, with a hybrid drivetrain expected to follow – but not “for a while”.

Mitsubishi Motors president Osamu Masuko said the final decision of what hybrid drivetrain will be offered in the 2015 Triton, which is expected to debut in production guise at the 2014 Paris motor show in September, is still to be decided.

“We are seriously discussing if we will do this with just hybrid instead of PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle),” Masuko said.

The new-generation Triton was previewed by the GR-HEV concept at the 2013 Geneva motor show. That car featured a plug-in hybrid drivetrain that teamed a powered by a 2.5-litre diesel engine to an electric motor with a high-tech four-wheel-drive system.
