I don't have a problem with black (I live in a place where 30°C (86°F) is a really hot day) and I have no issues with Mitsubishi, but otherwise I agree. I avoided the Outlander PHEV due to disappointing EV range and a much lower towing capacity than the ICE Outlander. .....
I personally don't really have a problem with Mitsubishi, used to own a Dodge Colt(which was made by Mitsubishi) many decades ago and it was a decent reliable econobox. Auto reviewers and even CR type publications often seem to dislike Mitsubishi, stating dated designs and lower than normal reliability. I see lots of Mitsubishi's up in Canada, they seem to be much more common than in the states, not that we don't see Mitsubishis, they just aren't as common. Personally I think it's because the Canadians seem to be more value-conscious, not so worried about brand names and such
I'm also leaning more towards a PHEV vs an EV with a huge battery for out of town trips, I'd also like it to be able to tow something, not 5000 lbs but 2500+ would be nice and a decent 20'ish kwh battery would be nice for a 30+ mile EV only range in town, oh and as long as I'm dreaming, a smaller ICE for maximum MPG when driving long distances and not towing.
This Volvo is intriguing but for several factors probably not my next vehicle
