Mitsubishi will launch a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) model of the all-new Outlander, a crossover SUV, fully evolved with a new-generation PHEV system. The vehicle will roll out in Japan in the second half of this fiscal year, and in the US in the second half of calendar year 2022.
With improved motor output and increased battery capacity over the current model, the all-new Outlander PHEV model delivers more powerful road performance and greater driving range. Based on the newly developed platform, integrated components and an optimised layout allow the new model to accommodate seven passengers in three rows.
The Outlander PHEV debuted globally in 2013, furnishing proof of Mitsubishi’s dedication in the research and development of electric vehicles (EVs) since 1964.
Since the launch of the Outlander PHEV, it has been sold in more than 60 countries around the world. Outlander PHEV launched in the US in 2016 as a 2017 model-year vehicle.
In addition to the benefits of PHEVs, including environmental friendliness and low reliance on charging infrastructure, the twin-motor 4WD PHEV system delivers driving performance with the company’s unique Mitsubishi Motors-ness: a combination of safety, security (peace of mind) and comfort. In its Environmental Targets 2030, the company has set a goal of a 40% reduction in CO2 emission of its new cars by 2030 through leveraging EVs — with PHEVs as the centerpiece — to help create a sustainable society.
