Next Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Will Have Extended Electric Range

Mitsubishi-Outlander_PHEV

Mitsubishi is not going to focus only on production of all-electric vehicles. The carmaker will develop its plug-in hybrid technology.

Thus, the next-generation Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV’s electric driving range will be extended from current 31 miles (50 km) to 62 miles (100 km). It’ll be enough to travel mostly on electric-only power and to pass longer distances, when needed.

This model is a best-selling one in many markets. Pushed by strict CO2 regulations, the leading automakers have to think of pure-battery EV technology development.

Mitsubishi strives for improvement of its PHEVs for them to meet emission requirements.

So, the company will extend the hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains to more cars, and, at the same time, add full-electric models to its range.

Just presented Mitsubishi L200, by the way, will not receive a plug-in hybrid version due to cost-ineffectiveness of this technology for commercial vehicles. But the carmaker promises to change the situation in the coming years.

  • Here is why I did not buy one (2019 PHEV) : THE CAR IS UNBELIEVABLY ANNOYING!! It stats with annoying beeping it is keep on annoying during the drive! I couldn´t imagine to pay for this 40tsd! So I am now waiting for the new 2020 model and if it will still be beeping (in manners ,like we drivers would be some complete idiots) and still without possibility to turn that annoyance of, I will stay away from it and go for some other brand! That is my plan for my new 4×4 PHEW.
