2023 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Boasts More Power, Improved Range

Mitsubishi recently made quite the impression when they launched the first Outlander Plug-In hybrid a few years ago. Recently, they introduced the latest generation of the electrified SUV with more range which boasts more power and range. Though it will undoubtedly do well, the next step is a fully-electric SUV.

And it will be called Airtrek, at least in China. Its 70-kWh battery will deliver a range of approximately 520 kilometers (km) under CLTC (China light-duty vehicle test cycle).

“We named the new electric SUV Airtrek so that many customers can enjoy adventurous, active driving with this pure EV, which achieves a maximum driving range of approximately 520 km while emitting zero CO2 in motion,” said Takao Kato, president and chief executive officer, MMC. “We hope the all-new Airtrek will help expand the horizons of customers in China, where environmental initiatives are accelerating with new energy vehicles, especially EVs.”

Lastly, the Airtrek is the result of a joint venture between Guangzhou Automobile Group Co., Ltd. (GAC) and Mitsubishi Corporation and MMC. As such, it’s unlikely that it will be offered in North America any time soon, if at all.
