Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV 2019
We are barely into Spring, but here at JT Hughes we have already started looking forward to this Autumn – and so should you! That’s because the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV will be on its way to our showrooms in Newtown and Telford. And we have now seen the forthcoming SUV in all its glory as it was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.
The Geneva Motor Show is recognised as the pre-eminent car exposition, with the world’s top manufacturers vying for attention as they present a series of premieres. The new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has certainly won itself a large number of admirers already, as it showed off an updated version of the powerful electric motor which has helped it become the top selling plug-in hybrid vehicle in Europe.
Battery output has been increased by 10 percent
Mitsubishi have presented the hard facts which prove the new Outlander PHEV has surpassed its own benchmarks – battery output has been increased by 10 percent, battery capacity by 15 percent, while the electric motor has also received a 10 percent increase in output. Glowing media reports emanating from Geneva also suggest that the new Outlander PHEV will be able to shave time from the model’s current capability of 0-62mph in 11 seconds.
Under the bonnet
Under the bonnet, a four-cylinder 2.4-litre Atkinson cycle unit now features in the mechanical side of the powertrain, which provides the engine with a compression stroke that surpasses standard unleaded engines, increasing economy. Alongside its advances in efficiency, the new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV engine results in smoother operation and enhanced torque.
To the rear, a new large spoiler adds to an even sportier look for the new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, as do a more imposing front grille, 18-inch alloy wheel design and new LED headlamps.
What about inside the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV 2019?
Those attendees peering inside the new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV in Geneva may have noticed the quilted leather, HVAC vents for rear passengers and ergonomically designed seats which hug the hips. There is also a revised switchgear, new instrument panel, and the introduction of two new driving modes; ‘SPORT’ and ‘SNOW’ augmenting the Normal and 4WD Lock modes which were already present. The new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is expected to offer an electric range of approximately 25 miles.
Hot on the heels of the Outlander PHEV’s success, Mitsubishi also unveiled the new e-Evolution Concept at the Geneva Motor Show, a stunning high-performance SUV which is still in the pipeline.
The new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV will be with us at JT Hughes in late 2018, but that doesn’t mean you can’t register your interest now. Contact us today.
