New Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-In Hybrid Will Be Available Next Year

    July 30th 2021     Suhail Ajmal

Mitsubishi has introduced the 2022 Outlander, but they didn’t unveil any details of its plug-in hybrid model. For now, the company is selling the old plug-in hybrid model with the new non-hybrid. However, that will change soon, as the Japanese automaker has shared some details along with a couple of pictures about the 2022 Outlander Plug-in hybrid model. The PHEV will be available in America and other regions before the end of next year, hopefully by the mid of 2022. According to the details shared, the PHEV will receive a more robust electric motor as well as a bigger battery. We expect the 2022 Outlander Plug-in hybrid to deliver a better range than the outgoing PHEV’s EPA electric rating of 24 miles. Another essential detail is the availability of the third-row seat for the PHEV, as accessible for the non-hybrid. We don’t know yet whether Nissan has any plans to introduce a plug-in hybrid model of Rogue. Both Rogue and Outlander use the same platform and powertrain. We hope Nissan will offer a hybrid variant of Rogue soon since its biggest competitors like the Toyota RAV4 and Ford Escape have already added plug-in hybrid models in their lineup.
