Mitsubishi’s updated Outlander PHEV will offer greater power and efficiency when it goes on sale in the UK in September.
The 2019 model year plug-in hybrid SUV will feature a new 2.4-litre petrol engine as well as an increased EV motor, generator and battery capacity.
Under the WLTP testing protocol, it will offer a battery-only range of 28 miles, with CO2 emissions of 46g/km.
The new petrol engine produces 135PS, an increase of 14PS over its predecessor, while torque rises from 190Nm to 211Nm.
The electric powertrain sees a 10% increase in the generator output and an increase in the rear electric motor to 95PS.
The output of the drive battery has been increased by 10% and its overall capacity increased to 13.8kWh thanks to new battery cells.
Other changes include revised shock absorbers to improve its low-speed ride, while a Snow driving mode aims to improve low-grip launching and cornering abilities on slippery surfaces.
Interior changes include redesigned front seats, relocated switchgear to increase ease of use, while the instrument cluster has also been overhauled.
Exterior changes include a new front end with redesigned grille, new bumper extension and new LED headlamps.
The rear receives a redesigned rear bumper extension and roof spoiler, while the new Outlander PHEV is also fitted with new two-tone contrasted 18-inch alloy wheels.
Pricing and UK specifications will be announced closer to its launch.
