Mitsubishi Outlander receives more prospects with new modular platform

Tests noticed a pre-production SUV, the public premiere of which the manufacturer promises to organize for next year. The exterior of the new Outlander was in many respects similar to the concept Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer, which debuted in the spring in Geneva.

Conceptual Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer gave us ideas about how it might look the fourth generation of the popular Mitsubishi Outlander CUV. This concept car was a hybrid power plant, like the Outlander PHEV. The current generation of cross receives a propulsion on the basis of a 2.4-liter 135-strong “atmosfernika”, two electrodisco capacity of 82 and 95 HP, as well as a battery with a capacity of 13.8 kWh. All of this has helped the SUV to pass on only one electric range of up to 65 kilometers.
