engine also received an upgrade, going from a 2.0-liter four-cylinder to a
2.4-liter. The new Outlander PHEV can tow up to 1,500 pounds. With muscle like

Mitsubishi has been enjoying a new level of
success thanks to the popularity of the Outlander family of crossovers. In the
U.S., the Outlander Sport continues to be the best-selling Mitsubishi model in
the United States, but over in Europe, an unexpected contender has taken the
number-one spot – the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. The plug-in hybrid
variant of the Outlander name has become a top pick for European drivers.
Since its 2013 debut in Japan, the Outlander PHEV has reached cumulative sales of 200,000 units sold around the world, a new record for members of the plug-in hybrid segment. Europe is responsible for over 130,000 of those sales over the course of the four years it has been available to the European market. Its efficient engine, innovative hybrid powertrain, and crossover versatility make it an appealing pick for buyers who don’t want to compromise space or capability for a fuel-efficient vehicle.
Will the U.S. catch up to Europe? The American
Outlander PHEV is a far cry from being the country’s best-selling Mitsubishi
model, but it also debuted late stateside, coming to the American market
several years later than other global markets. Hybrids and EVs are also more
popular in Europe than here. However, increasing interest in the green car
market could spell even more future success for the Outlander PHEV.
The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has had a fantastic reception in the United States, and the fanfare isn’t showing any sign of slowing down. The fuel-efficient SUV was recently named the “Best Green Winter Vehicle” by the New England Motor Press Association.
It isn’t easy to make a vehicle that can handle the coldest winters nature has to offer. The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, however, aces every test with ease, all while being one of the most efficient SUVs in the industry.
The Outlander PHEV features Super All-Wheel Control that improves traction and provides drivers with more control. Several built-in safety features that aid in maintaining traction include Traction Control Logic and Active Stability Control.
A model built for the harshest winters, the Outlander PHEV includes plenty of standard features designed to combat ice, slush, and snow. De-icers on the front and rear windshields keep the driver’s vision clear, even in the strongest storms. Heated side mirrors ensure that seeing to the side of the vehicle is no problem at all. Heated front seats offer premium comfort that makes hitting the road on cold winter days much more manageable.
Driver-assist safety systems keep an eye on things around the vehicle. Blind Spot Warning and Lane Change Assist are just a few of the active safety technologies designed to help protect drivers from unexpected dangers.

If there is one thing you can always count on in New England, it is the likelihood of a long, cold winter. This means New Englanders know what kind of vehicles are the best for cutting through the snow. Recently, the New England Motor Press Association (NEMPA) named the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV as the “Best Green Winter Vehicle” in its eighth annual winter vehicle competition.
While it’s not New England, Illinois gets its fair share of harsh winters, too. If you are searching for a vehicle that will help you make it through the season, while still helping you save money on fuel, stop in at Biggers Mitsubishi and see what the Outlander PHEV has to offer.
The Outlander PHEV comes standard with Super All-wheel Control (S-AWC) along with DC Fast Charging capabilities. When fully charged, it offers about 22 miles of pure electric driving.
NEMPA members tested numerous vehicles for their winter abilities. They were impressed with the Outlander PHEV’s impressive hybrid performance along with its smooth, enjoyable ride. It combines the efficiency of an electric vehicle, the superior handling of its S-AWC system, and the versatility of a crossover. This makes it an ideal choice for any time of year no matter where you live.
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV saw a few delays, but now the model is well on its way to North American shores. With the official debut date now past, the automaker has something else to celebrate. With more than 100,000 models sold in Europe, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV takes the title of best-selling plug-in hybrid SUV.
The upcoming Outlander PHEV crossover, available at Biggers Mitsubishi, is the only model in the segment to offer a hybrid powertrain. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is mated to two electric motors for optimized efficiency. In total, the powertrain delivers 197 horsepower.
In addition to its efficient powertrain, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV includes the brand’s Super All-Wheel Control system; DC Fast Charging capability comes standard as well.
“The Outlander PHEV has been a game-changer for the brand since its launch in the European market, and we’re extremely proud of the industry strides it’s made ever since,” said Don Swearingen, executive vice president and chief operating officer, MMNA.
With the introduction of the Outlander PHEV to the United States market, Mitsubishi looks to continue its reign as the fastest growing non-luxury brand in the country. With affordable pricing and all the capability of a crossover, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is bound to continue the brand’s success.

Here in the United States, we have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. This all-wheel-drive plug-in hybrid crossover is one of only a few of its kind, and it represents the future of Mitsubishi.
According to Mitsubishi, the Outlander PHEV should begin arriving at dealerships in February or March — just in time for spring driving. This model has already been on sale in Europe for a few years now and is one of the most popular hybrid models there.
When it goes on sale, Mitsubishi has said we should expect to see around a 22-mile all-electric driving range. This should be long enough to cover some drivers’ daily commutes, meaning they won’t have to use the gasoline engine very much. In addition, it will be one of the few hybrids available that come with all-wheel drive.
As the popularity of hybrids and electric cars continue to grow, it is clear that this is what the world, and Americans, want to drive. We want to be able to drive past the gas station and rely more on alternative fuel sources.

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.
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.
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.
