Mitsubishi is investing heavily in the plug-in hybrid craze with reports coming out that their 2009 Tokyo Motor Show concept Outlander Sport plug-in hybrid will make its way to North American markets by 2013. The hybrid crossover is being promoted by Mitsubishi as being environmental with on-road performance thanks to its electric powertrain combined with a 1.6L gasoline four-cylinder.

If the Outlander Sport plug-in hybrid does arrive in the United States by 2013, it’ll be Mitsubishi’s second electric offering with the 2012 i-MiEV hatchback already on sale.

Mitsubishi doesn’t plan on stopping the EV rollout then either, with plans for eight total electric/hybrid vehicles to launch globally before 2015.
