Mitsubishi promises more range and a better AWD system.
The base powertrain should be carried over from the previous model.
Mitsubishi is currently on something of a high as sales of their top-line Outlander SUV are doing extremely well. The combination of it being all-new for the 2022 model year and the pandemic the put the industry sideways has led many consumers to purchase the SUV. The version that’s garnered most of the attention is the PHEV and the new one is coming.
The Mitsubishi Outlander plug-in hybrid was unique when it launched a few years ago and remains different. Unlike other PHEVs or hybrids, electric motors drive the wheels. The latter is fed by a battery. The new Outlander PHEV will feature a larger battery and more powerful electric motors for enhanced performance.
For these reasons, along with more range and an all-new modernized design, consumers eagerly await the arrival of the all-new 2023 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.
Sales of the new Outlander PHEV are scheduled to begin in Japan by mid-December and in the U.S. and Canada in the second half of the 2022 calendar year.
The world premiere of the all-new Outlander PHEV will take place on October 28 at 12:30 p.m. JST and will be streamed live on MMC’s global website.
