Regulars here will remember that we have been talking about the upcoming generation of Mitsubishi outlander since quite sometime. Now, in a recent development, it has emerged that the Japanese auto maker will showcase the new Outlander Plug-in Hybrid EV at the upcoming edition of Paris Motor Show. The Outlander Plug-in Hybrid EV is the popular auto maker’s first Plug-in Hybrid car ever and will be powered by an EV powertrain hooked up to a petrol engine. The Outlander Plug-in Hybrid EV has a combination of front electric motor + rear electric motor + front traction/generator petrol engine. The driver can set the car in to Pure (Twin Motor 4WD EV), Series (Twin Motor 4WD – EV supported by generator), or Parallel (ICE engine supported by Twin Motor 4WD) depending on his/her requirements. In a nutshell, Mitsubishi is coming up with a four-wheel-drive crossover that can cover a distance of more than 800 kms in one fill and will emit only 50 g/km CO2. The Outlander Plug-in Hybrid EV will hit European roads next year, a few months after the new Outlander goes on sale towards the end of this year.
