The All-New 2023 Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-In-Hybrid Version.
2022 Mitsubishi Outlander Overview
Recently Mitsubishi leaked some images of their new upcoming plug-in-hybrid latest version of Outlander.
To be precise about its looks and style, this new version of Outlander has the same design as the non-hybrid variant, except for a charging port on the right rear fender and a hybrid badge.
In other news, the Mitsubishi Company shared some more details regarding the hybrid’s all-wheel-drive system. It will come with two different electric motors.
One motor will be controlling the front wheel while another will be powering the back wheel of the SUV.
The 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV blends hybrid power and performance with exceptional fuel efficiency.
Normal, Gravel, Snow, Power, and Eco setting will be among the seven drive modes available in the Outlander.
Mitsubishi will launch the PHEV version of Outlander next year based on the new model.
This version of PHEV will go on sale in the international market, including the U.S.A, in the second half of 2022.
The current 2021 Outlander PHEV provides 24 miles electric range and 26 mpg as a hybrid.
It was recently upgraded to a higher hybrid-system output of 221 hp for 2021, which is 31 hp more than before.
All included are a stronger 70-kW (94-hp) rear-wheel motor, a 60-kW front-wheel motor, and a larger 2.4-liter inline-4 engine with 126 hp.
The engine typically powers an 80-kW generator, but it can also be clutched in to assist in driving the front wheels.

Power & Performance
Upcoming Outlander hybrid’s gas-electric powertrain will contain higher battery ability and will have a more powerful electric motor.
Due to this reason, it will offer more electric driving range than the current car’s EPA rating of 24 miles or 38.62 kmph on battery power capacity when fully charged.
The company also reported the new platform’s packaging allows for a third-row seat in the hybrid vehicle, giving it the same 7-passenger seating capacity as the non-hybrid.
One of the exciting safety features is that when a vehicle or object is in your path, the Outlander PHEV’s Forward Collision Mitigation system informs you with auditory and visual alarms and attempts to brake for you.
