New generation Outlander PHEV

Mitsubishi is gearing up for the fourth generation Outlander PHEV to premiere on October 28th. To fuel interest in the hybrid version, which will debut eight months later than the regular crossover, the company has unveiled its exterior and interior while keeping the specs under wraps. However, there are no significant differences from the petrol version: externally PHEV can only be recognized by the additional charging hatch, black roof and nameplates on the doors.

Mitsubishi Outlander changed a generation at the beginning of 2021, and a hybrid version of the third generation is still being sold in parallel with the “fourth” crossover. This is because the manufacturer took additional time to develop the new Outlander PHEV.

Now the electrified Outlander is ready for the premiere. The model will be offered with 10 body colors to choose from, including a new shade of Black Diamond, and two-tone wheels with a dimension of 20 inches, as in the version with an internal combustion engine.

The salons of the two variants are identical, except for the slightly modified filling of the dashboard, on which the battery level of the hybrid is displayed. As for the differences from the PHEV version of the previous generation, the novelty received a three-row salon, inaccessible to its predecessor, as well as higher-quality finishing materials and modern electronics.

Details about the technical “stuffing” of the new hybrid Mitsubishi has not yet disclosed. It is expected to receive a new, more powerful powertrain and a larger battery, which will provide more electric range. Later, this Outlander could get a version from the Ralliart sports division: the crossover is predicted to have a more “aggressive” appearance, increased performance and even the cult name Evolution, which disappeared with the Lancer.

The Outlander PHEV will go on sale in the Japanese home market in mid-December 2021, with the hybrid coming to the US in the second half of 2022.
