2022 mitsubishi outlanders amazon live reveal is a first

As the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander ships to U.S. dealers, there will be a live reveal on Amazon, an auto industry first. On February 16 at 3 p.m. Pacific time, you can see the newly-designed 2022 Outlander.

The Outlander rolled off the Okazaki Plant assembly line in Aichi Prefecture, Japan, and began its shipment to North America on February 8, in time for its global debut on February 17, as we outlined previously.

After more than four years in development, the new Outlander will first be made available in the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico, before being released in other markets.

“The Outlander not only represents a new phase of Mitsubishi Motors’ design, but with its premium features, the vehicle is set to be a game-changer,” said John Signoriello, executive officer, global marketing and sales, MMC. “As its name suggests, the Outlander has brought drivers and their families across the world on great adventures. Going into its fourth generation, we believe the Outlander will take our customers to even broader horizons.”

The Outlander is a crossover SUV also known as the Airtrek, launched in 2001 in Japan. Since that time, MMC has broadened its utility and performance, reaching worldwide sales of 2.6 million units.

Staging its world premiere of the Outlander on Amazon, Mitsubishi and Amazon.com are collaborating on the first-ever automotive reveal on the Amazon Live platform.

      @jack4x Question for further study: If you sign up for this program: https://www.motortrend.com/news/corvette-museum-delivery-program-and-plant-tour/ Do you still pay this fee? https://www.chevrolet.com/destination-freight-charges

  • Bobbysirhan A friend had one when they first came out. He was CFO of some green California company and could charge the Volt at work. At home, the PHEV gave him an excuse to make his wife park her nicer car outdoors while the Volt get their condo's one-car garage. He liked the Volt, and he spent very little on energy during the 'first one's free!' era of EV ownership. Of course, the green company went bust soon after, and he wound up with a job that involved far more driving and ultimately the need for a more substantial car. I drove the Volt once after his wife had made a return trip to Los Angeles, depleting the battery. I don't know what a first gen Volt drives like with a charged battery, but it was really gutless with two adults, a yellow lab, and a dead battery. My other memory of it was that it had a really cramped back seat for a car that was about as large as a Civic. My friend who bought it liked it though, and that's not always been the case for GM vehicles.
  • MrIcky I think the Shakedown is more my speed of the last call editions- but this is impressive.
  • Dukeisduke I tried watching the live reveal last night, but after 15 minutes of jawing by MT+ personalities (and yes, I like Chris Jacobs and Alex Taylor), I turned it off.
  • Paul MBAs gonna MBA.
  • Zipper69 Clearly beyond German thought processes to simply keep A for IC engine and use "E" for all other so you can have a A6 and a E6.
