Mitsubishi Debuts Next-Gen Outlander PHEV

Given that it looks virtually identical to the regular Outlander, the new generation of which debuted here last year, we were already familiar with the appearance of the plug-in version of Mitsubishi’s compact SUV. Big bold – some would say busy and cluttered – front end, overhauled back end, etc. But tonight Mitsubishi officially presented the next Outlander PHEV for its home market, so now we know more details about the model that will make its way to our market next summer.

The 2023 Outlander PHEV is built using a new-generation PHEV system, which promises increased power and more battery range on a full charge. Other upgrades are designed to improve safety and ride comfort in all weather conditions – good news for Canadian motorists, who have made our market one of the hottest in the world for the Outlander PHEV.

The improvements to the PHEV system involve an updating of the components, allowing for a 40 percent increase in the output delivered by the front and rear motors and drive battery. This in turn means drivers can stay longer in EV mode, even when accelerating hard and moving at higher speeds. That new drive battery now has a 20-kWh capacity and increased the battery-drive range to 87 km (by the WLTC test cycle - we’ll have to wait and see what official range the model gets when it debuts here). To improve overall range of the vehicle, the gas tank has been made larger.

Beyond that, the front motor’s drive unit is now equipped with a booster function that increased driving force by sending more voltage to the motor. The redesign of the components has meant gaining enough additional floor space to allow for a third-row seating configuration. Mitsubishi says the change will furthermore help reduce high-frequency noise for a quieter ride.
