Got a latest PHEV (2.4ltr - 13.4kWh) few months ago and loving it.
I tend to keep my motors at least 15 years, usually buy them near new and run them till they literally fall apart.
So just thinking long term if there will be solutions that increases the battery capacity - Ideally if I can get 100 miles per charge that will be brilliant as that will cover 95% of all our trips.
Has anyone here/heard of anyone doing such an upgrade already ?
As battery cell energy density increases, I'm hoping someone will come up with a 'replacement' battery pack that is a straight forward plug-n-play for PHEV's current battery pack but offers something like double the current capacity or even more. Or even Mitsubishi will make their next gen PHEV battery pack compatible with older PHEV models (...most likely they won't even if they can I guess...)
PHEV has a full 4-wheel electric drive train, so hopefully will be able to just replace the battery packs every 10 yrs and keep driving it like pure EV for another 15-30yrs (assuming rest of the car stays in one piece......has good build quality)
