Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Debuts at Frankfurt Motor Show

Outlander PHEV in Frankfurt

The 2016 Mitsubishi PHEV was revealed this month at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

The Frankfurt International Motor Show was the platform chosen by Mitsubishi to debut its new Outlander PHEV. It was previously known that the SUV’s appearance carried over most of the base Outlander’s design. However, the redesigned front fascia, along with a few other minor changed elements, gives the car a personality that is dynamic and powerful despite its status as a PHEV, and the car’s SUV title was not forgotten during the Outlander PHEV debut in Frankfurt.

In addition to the fascia improvements, other Outlander PHEV appearance changes will include exclusive two-tone 18-inch wheels and LED lights. The use of LED technology will both give the SUVs a modern look, in addition to reducing battery drainage. The Outlander PHEV will also provide drivers and passengers with a quieter and more comfortable ride due to the use of sound-proof insulation, padded doors, and brown leather interiors, among other things – Mitsubishi took the time to make 30 improvements to the car to ensure consumer satisfaction.

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV makes use of two separate engines to power both the front and back wheels, but in this latest rendition of the car, Mitsubishi has reduced engine friction to cut emissions even further. V2H, or Vehicle to Home, technology is also at work in the car, allowing car owners to plug the Outlander PHEV into their home while charging to use as a backup power generator. Though a lot was already known about the car, it was still exciting to see the Outlander PHEV in Frankfurt.

Outlander PHEV Design Gets a Facelift

The Outlander PHEV is back and better than ever. The 2016 model will feature a new facelift, adding sporty contours and an aggressive new fascia. Plus, the model will be getting some mechanical upgrades as well.

According to World Car Fans, the Outlander PHEV design will feature the iconic Mitsubishi “dynamic shield” fascia, using extensive chrome. In addition to a new front end, the PHEV will get two-ton 18-inch gloss black wheels, interior cabin upgrades, redesigned seats, and a four-spoke steering wheel.

Under the hood, the 2016 Outlander PHEV, which stands for “Plug-in electric hybrid,” will also get some upgrades. This includes a new hybrid setup to lower friction, an 8% increase in electric range, and better throttle response. A Multi-around view monitor provides added safety as well.

The new model is set to be released sometime in July, although it will only be available in Japan for some time. Mitsubishi has stated that it should hit the US market sometime later this year, although no specific date has been given.

New Mitsubishi Hybrid Crossover Concept Headed to Geneva Motor Show

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV may not have made its way over here to the United States yet, but it’s already enjoying some great sales success over in Europe. Now, a new plug-in hybrid crossover is on its way to America. The new, as-yet-unnamed concept will make its first appearance at the Geneva Motor Show, showing off the future of the Mitsubishi brand, in terms of both design and performance.

We don’t really know much about the planned Mitsubishi hybrid crossover concept, but we’ve gotten a couple teaser images of it, plus we know it will be a plug-in vehicle. Mitsubishi will thus continue to push deeper into the PHEV territory, a segment that the brand obviously finds to be the wave of the future. It looks like the new concept owes some of its roots and design to the XR-PHEV, which is just fine with us.

The Outlander PHEV, for its part, will also be making its way over to the United States pretty soon. Right now, we expect it to arrive on our shores by the second quarter of 2016, and then we’ll get to share the plug-in goodness with you. Come see us at Biggers Mitsubishi to learn more today.

Mitsubishi Will Reveal Outlander PHEV at Paris Motor Show

The Outlander PHEV is debuting at the Paris Auto Show.

Could the Mitsubishi Outlander lineup be adding a plug-in vehicle in the US?

The Paris Motor Show just got underway, after weeks and weeks of anticipation. The reveal we’re most excited for at Biggers Mitsubishi is that of the Outlander plug-in, which has already been rumored to come to the United States next fall as a 2016 model.

The Outlander PHEV is expected to stand out with massively improved styling and material quality, which Mitsubishi claims will fit within a new “Sporty and Sophisticated” design theme.

From what we know of its appearance already, the new PHEV has hit the mark. An updated horizontal grille leads to reshaped headlights, on top of a better integrated air dam in sexy black and chrome accents. The overall result is a much sleeker, attractive look that’ll have people turning heads at the Motor Show and, we suspect, in the streets next year.

Inside, Mitsubishi says passengers will find black wood grain trim and silver accents throughout the cabin, hand-stitched leather seats, and a new center console inspired by Japanese black lacquer boxes.
