New Outlander PHEV Makes U.S. Debut

2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

Mitsubishi has been holding back one of its niche favorites from U.S. shores for years. While the Mitsubishi Outlander and Outlander Sport have been making a splash in the American market, the Outlander name has also been earning green car credibility elsewhere with a plug-in hybrid model. The new Outlander Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) has finally made its way to the U.S. for the 2018 model year, bringing with it affordable efficiency like you’ve never seen.


The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has all the bold, modern design and adventurous elespirit people have come to expect from the standard Outlander Sport, with the five-passenger design and upscale driving dynamics reflecting the vehicle on which it’s based. However, the powertrain provides a convenient plug-in hybrid system – one of the few on the market to also come with All-Wheel Control and amenities like DC Quick Charging. Quick charging allows drivers to get the Outlander PHEV back to an 80% charge in as little as 25 minutes. It’s even rated at 74 MPGe.*


The new Outlander PHEV is like nothing else on the market, and the few hybrid SUVs that come close are far above its price point. If you’re looking for an affordable and capable way to drive green, check out the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV at Pantili Mitsubishi.

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Coming to America for New York Auto Show Debut

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has been impressing people over in Europe for a while now, but we’re still waiting to get our first look at it here in the States. Soon, we’ll get that chance, though—the Outlander PHEV has been confirmed for a debut at the New York Auto Show. PHEV stands for “plug-in hybrid vehicle;” the new vehicle will come to the market as a 2017 model.

In fact, according to Automotive News, the new PHEV will hit in the second quarter of 2016. A refreshed version of the gas-powered Outlander will be coming this June, before the PHEV, as well. “All of our 2016 model year vehicles will be refreshed with our new brand identity, starting with the 2016 Outlander, which will make its world premiere at the New York International Auto Show in April,” Mitsubishi Motors North America Executive Vice President Don Swearingen said.

Come see us here at Pantili Mitsubishi to learn more about both the Outlander and its PHEV counterpart today.
