The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has been unveiled by the Japanese brand ahead of its official unveiling. Styling-wise the eco-friendly SUV will share the same styling as its petrol-powered alternative that was launched to global markets earlier this year.
Sales for the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV are scheduled to begin in Japan in mid-December and select markets in the second half of 2022.
The brand says that the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has been penned under its Bold Stride design language which places a strong focus on presence and a solid stance. At the front, the brand has evolved the Dynamic Shield design, which aims to project power, reassurance and presence.
The side view expresses bold proportions, with thick horizontal accents and sharply defined character lines, extending from the front to the rear. Additionally, 20-inch wheels, along with the muscular front and rear fender flares have been applied.
On the tailgate, which features distinctive PHEV badging, a hexagon motif makes mention of the spare tyres mounted on the back of popular Mitsubishi SUV heritage models while the horizontal-themed T-shaped signature taillights emphasise the vehicle’s width and reinforce the look of stability.
10 colours will be available for the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV including the vivid, crystalline, high brightness Diamond Color series which consists of red, white and black.
Significant changes have been made to the interior as well. A horizontally sculpted instrument panel aims to make it easy to understand the position of the car while driving while expressing robustness and a feeling of spaciousness. On the door panel, trim is laid out over a wide area and covered with soft padding. The monitors and gauges are designed to be easy to see while the selectors, dials and switches are designed to provide confident grip and operation, resulting in a quality feel that appeals to the senses.
Like its petrol-powered counterpart, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV will come standard with third-row seating, providing greater flexibility for active owners and families.
