The new Mitsubishi L200 Triton will still take some time to launch, but new design information has already been announced in the international media. This week, one of the pickup’s engineers confirmed that the next generation will have at least one electric version.
According to the Australian website CarsGuide, engineer Kentaro Honda said that the pickup can be a plug-in hybrid or full electric, but the choice of one depends on the characteristics of each market. Kentaro used Australia as an example and said that in the country plug-in hybrid models are better, because of the payment structure.
As the model is confirmed for Australia, it is almost certain that there will be a plug-in hybrid version, as Mitsubishi thinks it is the best option. After all, like Brazil, the Oceania country has a small charger structure, which makes it difficult to implement 100% electric models.
However, it is possible that there are fully electric versions of the new Mitsubishi L200 Triton in other countries, especially in Europe, as the infrastructure for these cars is better there.
The new generation L200 Triton will share its platform with the Nissan Frontier and Renault Alaskan siblings. As Mitsubishi is the most experienced of the three brands in terms of truck manufacturing, the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance has decided that the three-diamond brand will create a new type of group image. The international launch is expected to take place in 2023.
