Mitsubishi today showed the much-anticipated production model of the all-new 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV at the 2016 New York International Auto Show.
Featuring a highly efficient 2.0-liter gasoline engine and two high-performance electric motors that drive Mitsubishi’s superior Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) system, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is a very capable PHEV with go anywhere capability.
The Outlander PHEV will arrive at Mitsubishi Motors showrooms in fall 2016.
The Outlander PHEV is highlighted by a full-time, twin-electric motor-powered all-wheel control system that provides quick and optimized torque distribution between the front and rear wheels. Mounted separately at the front and rear axles the electric motors deliver precise, responsive 4WD performance with the S-AWC system ensuring excellent driving stability and intuitive, linear handling.
The S-AWC system found on the Outlander PHEV is a specialized application of Lancer Evolution-derived Super All-Wheel Control honed on the world rally circuit.
The Outlander PHEV will be available with an array of safety and infotainment technology like a multi-camera system, Forward Collision Mitigation with pedestrian detection capability, Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and an infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
