Mitsubishi has provided more information regarding the 2023 Outlander PHEV. The Mitsubishi Outlander's fourth generation had a significant redesign. The plug-in hybrid vehicle was part of a revamp that affected the complete model portfolio.
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV will be on sale in a few US cities in November and will cost $39,845 when it does.
The exterior and interior of the Outlander PHEV are identical to those of the non-plug-in version. Except for display readouts unique to hybrid models, the model's attractive interior is identical to those of the other variants.
The crossover has a plug-in hybrid powertrain that starts under the hood and is made up of a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, two electric motors, and a 20 kWh lithium-ion battery pack.
The crossover has a combined output of 248 horsepower and 450 Nm of torque thanks to the stronger electric motors than its predecessors. What's more, the longer battery pack extends the range of the vehicle when using solely electricity, from 39 km to 61 km.
According to the company, the SUV can travel up to 674 kilometers on a single tank of petrol and one charge. When the battery is low, owners can use a DC fast charger to recharge it to 80% capacity in around 38 minutes.
The SUV also comes equipped with Mitsubishi's Super All-Wheel Control technology and a larger, 56-liter fuel tank. The front wheels are driven by the engine and one electric motor, while the back wheels are only turned by the electric motor. Mitsubishi's Active Yaw Control will also be available for the Outlander PHEV.
This fall, the all-wheel drive crossover will debut in a few markets before going on sale all throughout the country.
