The 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show was the first opportunity to see in Europe the refreshed 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, the most popular plug-in hybrid in Japan and Europe with over 70,000 sales.

The new Outlander PHEV will go on sale in Europe this month, and finally in the US in May.

Update (April 2016):  The Outlander PHEV has now been delayed again, the new release date is for ~October, as the model will have special US operation and efficiency apparently, and will debut as part of Mitsu’s 2017 MY lineup.

Mitsubishi said that the Outlander is the most important model for them in Europe and adds that the PHEV version sells better than its conventional version.

Probably this is the reason why Outlander PHEV’s presence on the stage was so bold with cars in all the colors – white, black, red, brown and silver.

There is no major changes in drivetrain or battery, although Mitsubishi did some tweaks here and there. Most of the over 100 changes concern the exterior and interior.

“The new Outlander PHEV features a new front end look designed around the Dynamic Shield front fascia concept employed in recent MMC models. The interior brings an enhanced quality feel while improvements to the body, chassis and powertrain see a significant advance in interior quietness, acceleration, handling and stability, ride quality, environmental performance and other aspects of driving performance and quality.

The new Outlander PHEV is a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle capable of supplying electric power to the home, adding to its utility value even when parked.

The Outlander PHEV was first launched in Japan in January 2013 as the world’s first plug-in hybrid 4WD SUV. Now exported to 48 countries including those in Europe, it is the world’s fastest selling PHEV with cumulative sales of some 70,000 units.

It is powered by Mitsubishi Motors’ Plug-in Hybrid EV system, comprising a Twin Motor 4WD drivetrain, with separate motors driving the front and rear wheels, and a high-capacity battery located under the floor that provides electric-only driving for most everyday use. The Outlander PHEV is a premium SUV which offers unprecedented performance for its class, including the smooth and responsive acceleration the Twin Motor 4WD delivers, and the outstanding economy and quietness it realizes in EV mode.”

12 kWh battery is good for about 52 km (over 31 miles) of range at best, while in the real world its probably less than 40 km (25 miles).

Two 60 kW (peak) electric motors (one per axle) gives Outlander PHEV important and smooth AWD. Acceleration from 0-62 mph (100 km/h) takes 11 seconds.

2016 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV – V2G

Mitsubishi presented V2G capability, which for the very first time will be available in Europe (special bi-directional DC charger uses CHAdeMO inlet).

Outlander PHEV and V2H Power Supply

Two-way electrical power supply capability using V2H*6technology between an EV and the home already in use in Japan*7will be rolled out in Europe with the new Outlander PHEV.

The new Outlander PHEV is not just a means of transport. Its V2H capability also gives it new value in being able to supply power to the home when stationary from electricity stored in its drive battery. In addition, by linking up to a Home Electricity Management System (HEMS) it enables more efficient use of domestic power supply by reducing wasteful usage of electricity.

Moreover, when paired with solar and other forms of renewable energy sources the new Outlander PHEV also makes it possible to use electricity more environmentally-friendly and more effectively for the home.

*6Vehicle to Home.
*7With a separate V2H device. Some V2H devices may or may not be compatible with the Outlander PHEV.”

If only they made a folding third row for kids!!!!!!!

Looks good.

….would be nice if they can get this to the US this spring AND it had the same V2G capability.

“Mitsubishi presented V2G capability, which for the very first time will be available in Europe (special bi-directional DC charger uses CHAdeMO inlet).”

This is by far the best part of this news!!!

The v2h stuff is what’s amazing and has lots of potential and unfortunately tesla has positioned itself with their free super charger access paradigm into not being able to participate in that path of innovation. I wonder if Nissan leafs are going to fill that gap in the future?

I think V2G is already possible with Leaf in Japan.

Mitsu managed to not screw up the styling too much, in contrast to the early artwork, and if it is offered with a US version of the V2H appliance, that would make a big difference. Sure wish it still had 7 seats.

I’m surprised that Mitsubishi has not upgraded the battery capacity like everyone else is achieving now and soon. With Britain profiling incentives in the future and the 16 kW hurdle in the US for the full tax advantage, this seems like an opportunity or necessity lost.

Wait. …. Is this going to be a $40,000 to $50,000 car when (if) it gets to the US?

Price in germany (which normaly translates xxx € (tax incl.) = xxx $ MSRP):

Base Model: 23.000€
AWD Model: 32.000€
PHEV Model: 39.000€
BUT you get 7.500$ tax incentive!

See an old post of insideevs “Price of this 5-seat SUV is in plug-in hybrid version is around 43% higher than ICE (compared on a trim-to-trim basis).” (source http://insideevs.com/mitsubishi-unveils-new-outlander-phev/)

The Outlander USA price is $22,995 – $30,995 MSRP add 43% and you are at around $32.900 – $44.300.

Anyone see information on interior dimensions? A tall guy wants to know.

thanks.
