The Outlander PHEV is the world’s best-selling plug-in hybrid SUV, and the all-new Outlander PHEV combines everything that has made the gasoline-powered 2022 Outlander so successful: bold styling, advanced vehicle architecture, award-winning interior, seven-passenger convenience and legendary Mitsubishi SUV capability. To this, the PHEV model adds an all-new version of Mitsubishi Motors’ plug-in hybrid electric drivetrain, boasting more power and torque, greater all-electric range and the latest and most sophisticated version of Mitsubishi’s confidence-inspiring Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) all-wheel drive system.
The seven-passenger 2023 Outlander PHEV offers up to 38 miles of all-electric range, up to 420 miles of overall range and is the only plug-in hybrid on the market with available DC fast-charging capability (SEL and above models), which can fill the 20kWh battery pack to 80% capacity in just 38 minutes.
The 2023 Outlander PHEV also features Mitsubishi’s new “Innovative Pedal” technology, which allows near-one-pedal acceleration and deceleration, similar to full battery electric vehicles. This system further differentiates the Outlander PHEV from other plug-in hybrids, and highlights the vehicle’s electric-first design philosophy.
All models are equipped as standard with a new generation of the brand’s signature Super All-wheel Control (S-AWC) all-wheel drive system, allowing for greater vehicle control and increased driver confidence. The twin-motor system, utilizing the gasoline engine and front motor to drive the front wheels, and a stand-alone rear-mounted motor to drive the rear axle, boasts a combined 248-horsepower and 332 lb./ft of torque and achieves a 64 MPGe (miles-per-gallon equivalent) rating.
“Since its introduction, Outlander PHEV has provided a unique blend of electric power and gasoline range. For most customers, a PHEV that allows up to 38 miles of clean and efficient all-electric motoring, combined with the ease of refueling of a gasoline engine, is the perfect transportation solution. This allows most users to spend the bulk of their daily driving needs using electric power, but still allows up to 420 miles of total range for a weekend full of exploring,” said Mark Chaffin, MMNA CEO. “We were the first PHEV SUV to market when the car launched globally in 2012, and now we’re adding more power, more range, more inspiring technology, and more convenience, providing an even better value for owners and resetting the standard by which all PHEVs should be measured.”
