If you’re shopping for a used vehicle, you might be overwhelmed by the number of choices available to you these days. There are so many different body styles, manufacturers, powertrain types and so on, it can get a bit confusing. If you want our suggestion? Try to get in on the ground floor of electrification. The future of the automotive industry is electric vehicles, without a doubt. So, now is the time to get a head start on what will eventually become commonplace. You can sometimes find used electric vehicles for sale here at San Jose Mitsubishi in California. If you’re not quite ready to dive into full electrification, then maybe a used hybrid vehicle would be a good compromise? We typically have some hybrid vehicles for sale here as well.
Traditional hybrid vehicles might not be truly electrified, but they’re definitely the halfway point between ordinary gasoline engines and battery electric vehicles. A hybrid powertrain maximizes efficiency as much as possible, saving you plenty of money at the pump. Our inventory is constantly in flux, but any hybrid vehicle out there could potentially pass through our lot, like the Toyota Prius or Honda Insight for example.
True all-electric vehicles are beginning to trickle out across the automotive industry, but plug-in hybrids are a great stepping stone between traditional hybrid models and full BEVs. A majority of the all-electric vehicles that pass through our inventory are Tesla models, but we have seen our fair share of plug-in hybrids as well. This includes models like the Hyundia Ioniq and Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid models.
Back in 2013, Mitsubishi introduced its first major step into the electric future when it added the Outlander PHEV to the lineup. This plug-in hybrid electric version of the Mitsubishi Outlander has only improved in the near-decade since its inception, and it represents the future of electrification for the brand. We simply cannot wait to see what that future holds and will be sure to fill you in here on the San Jose Mitsubishi blog.
