Electrification is becoming more and more crucial to the automotive industry. Legislation is rapidly making it the most viable path to the future all across the globe, and while things aren’t moving quite as quickly here in the United States as they might be in other countries, most manufacturers are ramping up their timelines anyways. The Mitsubishi brand introduced its Outlander PHEV all the way back in 2012 with the vehicle’s third generation. Now, the 2023 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is upon us, as the Outlander has entered its fourth generation. If you’re shopping for a plug-in hybrid electric crossover here in San Jose, California, consider the Outlander PHEV!
The Mitsubishi Motors twin-motor 4WD PHEV system is what powers the plug-in hybrid version of the Outlander, but for the next-gen 2023 Outlander PHEV this system has also entered a new generation. The newest iteration of the hybrid system features more powerful motors at both the front and rear of the vehicle, plus a larger drive battery. This means a more powerful vehicle and more electric range overall.
The Mitsubishi brand has developed a legendary S-AWC system, and in the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV it comes with a standard integrated vehicle-dynamics control system. In more widespread terms, the vehicle comes with a standard drive mode selector with up to seven different presets that will optimize your vehicle for driving in various road conditions as well as different types of inclement weather.
While these two aspects touch on the powertrain of the vehicle, the interior and exterior both feature a host of incredible technologies about which we’re quite excited. This includes things like a premium Bose audio system, wireless charging for your devices, tri-zone temperature control, LED lighting, Active Yaw Control and much more. We cannot wait to try each and every one of these, whether they’re new or not.
