LOS ANGELES AUTO SHOW: Mitsubishi RE-Model A

What do you get when you combine a classic car with a plug-in hybrid engine? A lot of questions. Or, the Mitsubishi RE-Model A announced a few weeks ago and presented this week at the Los Angeles International Auto Show.

The idea behind the Mitsubishi RE-Model A is to revive the first model of the Japanese brand while showcasing its new technologies. The Outlander PHEV’s plug-in hybrid engine is under the hood of the RE-Model A, and a 12-kWh battery is used to power the electric motor.

The vehicle was first shown on West Coast Customs.
