New generation Mitsubishi Outlander Crossover - Hybrid for 2013

09 February 2012

New Generation Outlander

Eleven years after it first coined the term “crossover”, Mitsubishi will unveil its third embodiment of this concept at the forthcoming Geneva Motor Show with the New Generation Outlander. This all-new mid-size crossover is meant to better comply with the times - a strategic and innovative premium vehicle of substance developed around a versatile global platform and borne of a harmonious balancing of:

Similar in size to the current car, the New Generation Outlander follows a  clear design brief where in true Mitsubishi fashion, key directions were for an “engineer’s car” with a “Solid – Safe – Simple” shape, blending substantial look with clean surfaces.

This same uncluttered quality look continues inside the car with high grade materials (padded surfaces, soft-touch finish, silver accents, gloss black appliqués…) gracing a dashboard designed for better driver concentration, including ergonomic steering wheel controls as well as high-resolution and easy-to-read instrument displays.

In Europe, the New Generation Outlander will offer at launch the choice between two low impact engines (whether in 2WD or 4WD): 2.0 l MIVEC petrol or 2.2 MIVEC Clean Diesel Depending on market, model, engine and specifications, Auto Stop & Go will be available, as well as an all-new 6-speed automatic gearbox.

As part of its novel technical package, the new Outlander will also be equipped with an “eco-friendly driving system” that notifies the driver when she/he is driving at maximum efficiency. Accordingly, the driver can choose to drive at maximum efficiency to enhance actual fuel consumption of the vehicle – availability according to model & market.

From 2013, Mitsubishi will also take advantage of the built-in possibilities of Outlander’s versatile architecture to add an EV-based plug-In hybrid powertrain - a fully integrated solution, based on Mitsubishi’s EV technology and making the best use of Mitsubishi’s extensive 4-Wheel-Drive expertise as well. When fitted to Outlander, the Mitsubishi Plug-in Hybrid EV system will allow for a range and very low CO2 emissions similar to that of the MITSUBISHI Concept PX-MiEV II (over 800 km and a target of below 50 g/km).

Low Impact:

  • With a development of our Mitsubishi petrol and Clean Diesel engines. In Europe, the new Outlander will be made available with a choice of two different engines:
    1. MMC’s “4J11” – a 110 kW (150ps) 2.0 l MIVEC petrol now fitted with an all-new valve train2. MMC’s “4N14” – a 110 kW (150ps) 2.2 Clean Diesel with many innovative features to include an ultra-low 14.9:1 compression ratio. Further improvements allow for high performance and low emissions.
  • With an all-new Automatic Stop & Go system3
  • With an all-new 6-speed automatic gearbox.3
  • Through weight reduction (optimisation of the body structure, further use of high-tensile strength steel pressings).

All improvements leading to a much better fuel economy and emissions, down to a minimum target of below 130 g/km.3
