Mitsubishi Triton PHEV

Mitsubishi has again hinted the next-generation Triton ute could be available with the option of plug-in hybrid power.

The company is well progressed with the design, engineering, and development of the new-generation Mitsubishi Triton which, using history as a guide, could be in showrooms by 2023 or 2024 – with previous timelines released by Mitsubishi in mid-2020 pointing to a launch by early 2023.


While the next Mitsubishi Triton will be shared with the next Nissan Navara – thanks to the recent tie-up between the two Japanese car giants, to save development costs – Mitsubishi is in fact leading the way on the development of the pick-up.

Because of its popularity in developing countries, diesel is still expected to be available.

However, Mitsubishi will also likely need to develop a hybrid option for countries with strict emissions.

Mitsubishi is already an expert at plug-in hybrid technology with the Outlander and Eclipse Cross PHEVs (plug-in hybrids).
