Here Are Some Of The Confirmed Specs Of The All-New 2024 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV For The Philippines


We are nearing the launch of the all-new Mitsubishi Outlander. This, after the compact SUV received its official certification from the Land Transportation Office (LTO).

Like the previous-generation Outlander, Mitsubishi Motors Philippines will only offer it with a Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV) powertrain. Based on documents filed with the LTO, the Outlander PHEV will come with a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder gasoline engine paired with two electric motors for a combined total of 251 horsepower (185 kW) and 450 Nm of torque. With an on-board 20-kW lithium-ion battery, it will offer an all-electric range of 56 kilometers (640 kilometers with a full tank of gas). All-wheel drive is standard as is a CVT gearbox.

An evolved version the Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) adds braking control system to the rear wheels. This reduces the load on the front wheels and makes it possible to extract the maximum performance from all four tires in a more balanced manner and delivers enhanced handling in various conditions.

In addition, seven drive modes can be selected depending on road conditions and driving style. Normal, the basic mode, is optimized for normal driving on paved roads. Gravel mode provides balanced operability and road handling ability on unpaved or wet paved roads, and Snow mode delivers stable vehicle behavior on snowy and other slippery roads. In addition, there are Power mode, which offers powerful acceleration, and Eco mode that prioritizes economic and environmentally-friendly driving.

Thanks to a unified rear motor and control unit assembly at the back, it gives the Outlander PHEV a 7-seater capacity—something that’s confirmed by the LTO documents. Moreover, the local spec will have 20-inch wheels with 255/45R20 tires.

The Outlander PHEV’s declared dimensions are: 4,709 mm (length), 1,747 mm (height), 1,862 mm (height). Its wheelbase is 2,706 mm, while its ground clearance is 201 mm. Curb weight is at 2,125 kg, while its gross vehicle weight is 2,750 kg.

No other official specifications have been confirmed by Mitsubishi, but the Outlander PHEV will come in at least two variants: the Outlander PHEV SEL Touring and Outlander PHEV SEL Premium. Previewed several times in the past by Mitsubishi Motors Philippines, the Outlander has features like the orange/black interior scheme, diamond-patterned leather seats, a 12.3-inch full LCD digital driver’s display, and a 9-inch center touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Currently, the Outlander PHEV is priced at P 2,998,000. Expect the all-new Outlander PHEV to get a significant bump in its SRP putting this PHEV way into the P 3-million category.

  1. 640kms only with a tank of gas¿ Disappointing frugality

    1. The gas tank is tiny. If you charge it everyday at home, it will barely be needed to be refilled even after how many hundreds of kilometers. PHEVs really shine in city driving.

  2. This will still not sell well. Still very expensive for a PHEV in spite of the EVIDA benefit...

  3. 3.2 Million or 3.4 Million Pesos are the acceptable price ranges for this new generation Òutlander PHEV

  4. Php 2.9m is expensive with dismal EV range, better PHEV SUVs are available at lower price and much better EV range

    1. Like what exactly?
      The closest would either be Lexus or Volvo?

    2. Err Lexus and Volvo don't come close at all! Cherry and other China Branded offer PHEV and are much much cheaper and better finish and etc..

  5. It is a common misconception that the Outlander PHEV has a CVT when in fact, it doesn't.

    1. Then what transmission does it have then?

    2. It has a single speed clutch that only engages at certain highway speeds. The motor acts as a generator most of the time only (like Nissan's e-Power) and the only time when the engine drives the wheels is when the engine speed can match the wheel speed where then the clutch can engage. At low speed, the engine CANNOT power the wheels because the chosen fixed gear ratio is not low enough. Subsequently, at extra legal high speeds, the clutch disconnects the engine from the driven wheels so that the engine because the engine would have to exceed its redline to go faster. This is why even if you somehow hack the factor speed limiter (limited to 165km/h), the limiting factor is not engine power but rather its fixed gearing.

      It is a rather fascinating and unique system, but I'm not sure if this design is better than just having a transmission.

  6. Its predecessor was the number 1 plug in hybrid SUV in Europe and the best seller for Mitsubishi.
