    Mitsubishi Previews A Possible Subcompact Sedan

    Mitsubishi could be introducing a new subcompact sedan as part of an effort to help bolster their presence in the U.S. Automotive News reports that Mitsubishi dealers were shown rendering of the sedan at the brand's regional dealer meetings back in April. Mitsubishi told the dealers that the sedan could be arriving sometime in 2015.

    When asked about this, Mistubishi declined to confirm the timing or whether dealers in the U.S. would get it at all. What Mitsubishi did confirm is that they did talk to their dealers about this.

    The company "is looking into introducing a small, entry-level sedan to the United States market, and while we continue to study the market trend and demand for this smaller-segment sedan, we have not come to a concrete decision on when this model may make the U.S. showroom," a Mitsubishi spokesman said.

    Scott Grove, owner of two Mitsubishi dealerships near Chicago said this news was a high point in the meeting.

    • Good morning ... ... a quick quiz - 3 guesses and the first 2 don't count. Match the following: 1.  state governor a. b. 2.  to the vehicle they are likely to pilot a. b. - - - - - Don't think too hard now.
    • @ccap41 and @G. David Felt - to expand on this a bit.  Even if I didn't have a Level-2 charger at my house (which I don't), for the average daily commute, even a Level-1 charger can be sufficient if you plug it in every night.  For most use cases, you'll be able to start each morning fresh with an 80% battery.

    • The Avalanche has a 27 gallon tank. The problem isn’t the fill up time, the problem is the wait for the pump.  I do notice that the pumps slow down when they are busy.  But the problem is both side of this argument miss the point.  If I had an EValanche, I’d never even make the trip to fill up in the first place. It would charge while I sleep.  If I was on a long trip, I’d charge whenever I needed to stop for food or bathroom and then leave when I was done, not when the truck was done.  I’ve done trips like this in a short range Model-3, driving from Pittsburgh to NYC to Philly to Pittsburgh. 10-15 minute bathroom and/or food breaks is enough to keep the range within the comfort level even on 150Kw chargers which is all the faster the Model-3 SR can pull power. Something that charges at 250Kw or 350 Kw would be even easier.   The EValanche can take on 150 miles of range in 15 minutes. I can burn 15 minutes waiting for my food at a Sheetz pretty easily. 
    • Yeah, it doesn’t pass the sniff test at all. No vehicle, not even a full size SUV, takes even 10 minutes to fill up much less 22. That doesn’t even qualify as making sense to believe it takes 22 minutes to fill up ANY vehicle that only has four tires on it.
