Mitsubishi to Focus on Plug-in Hybrids

As Mitsubishi strives to end losses in Japan and North America, it will turn to expanding its plug-in hybrid offerings.

New plug-in models from Mitsubishi will be heading to North America in the near future, as the brand hopes to surpass the 5.2 percent operating margin it forecast in its midterm business plan that ends on March, 2017.
