Electrification is without a doubt the future of the automotive industry. Almost every automaker in the business has announced its long term plans for electrification, with many already having their foot in the door. In many ways, electrification is the present, but it’s not quite widespread enough yet to really make that statement. We are on the precipice of the technology skyrocketing, though. If you’re looking to get in on the ground floor, you might be shopping for a used electric vehicle. We typically have a handful of those available to shoppers here in Hayward, CA, or the surrounding area. If not actual electric vehicles, at least some hybrid models. Be sure to check out our inventory to see what we have available.
The Toyota Prius was the first mass-produced hybrid vehicle available in North America, all the way back at the turn of the century. Since then, the market has boomed with hybrid offerings. There are hybrids of all different shapes and sizes these days, from sedans to crossovers… and even pickup trucks! Whether you’re looking for a true hybrid, or an electrified plug-in hybrid, there are plenty available on the market.
True electric vehicles, often referred to as BEVs - which stands for Battery Electric Vehicles - are still relatively few and far between, but there are plenty on the horizon if not already available. Plug-in hybrids, as already mentioned, are technically electric vehicles as well. Models like the Hyundai Ioniq and Ford Fusion have plug-in hybrid variants, which are the most likely electric vehicles to be available here.
What about the Mitsubishi brand? What does it have to offer as far as electrification is concerned? Right now, there is only one electrified model available, but it sure is a good one. The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has been around since 2013 and it continues to represent the brand well as it gets a jumpstart on the automaker’s future. We cannot wait to see what the brand has in store for customers next!
