2023 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Set To Arrive Next Year

It gets three rows of seats.


  • The 2023 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV will arrive in North America in the second half of 2022.

  • A new-generation powertrain and a bigger battery will provide improved performance and range.

  • Three rows of seats will be standard for a capacity of up to seven passengers.


The Japanese brand’s new-generation crossover will receive a plug-in hybrid powertrain as expected, and a couple of teaser images of the 2023 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV were released to raise its awareness.

The redesigned pluggable Outlander is scheduled to hit the Japanese market in late 2021 or early 2022, and will arrive in North America in the second half of next year. In the meantime, we can expect a succession of close-up pictures of the vehicle’s details, announcing one or two features or technical specifications at a time.

For starters, the 2023 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV will benefit from higher electric motor output and a bigger battery pack compared to the current-generation model, which also received more power and greater battery pack capacity for the 2021 model year. As a result, the crossover will boast improved performance and EV range.

In addition, thanks to the Outlander’s new platform and better hardware packaging, the new generation will offer three rows of seats for a max capacity of seven passengers. The current model can seat up to five people. An advantage over its current direct rivals, the Toyota RAV4 Prime and the Ford Escape PHEV.

Not much can be said about the two images provided by the manufacturer. Once again, the vehicle will wear generously sized front fender badges to flaunt its eco-friendliness, while the charge port door is curiously located on the right side of the crossover’s posterior, where the conventional 2022 Outlander’s fuel-filler door is. We can also see a quick charge port, just like the current Outlander PHEV has.

As a reminder, the recently introduced Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross PHEV won’t come to North America, which is a shame. However, the redesigned 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander went on sale in April 2021, and sales have been good so far, even though they’re not at pre-pandemic levels yet.

More details regarding the 2023 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV should follow in the next few months.
