Mitsubishi has debuted further updates to the best selling plug-in hybrid in Europe - the 2017 Outlander PHEV.

The Japanese plug-in hybrid is also one of the best sellers among plug-ins worldwide (coming in at #4), with some 110,000 sold to date.

Through July 2016 total sales have broken down as follows:

  • 71,745 in Europe
  • 34,666 in Japan
  • 2,096 in Australia & NZ
  • 310 units in other markets.
At the Paris Motor Show Mitsubishi demonstrated its 2017 model year version, which is slightly improved.

Editor's Note:  We encourage all readers from the US to go check out one of our other fine articles, as Mitsubishi's 6th (or 7th) delay for the Outlander PHEV in America means that the 2017 model year will not be arriving - Mitsubishi now promises to deliver the 2018 model year next Summer.

On the changes:

  • EV priority switch - to prevent the PHEV system to switch to hybrid mode and therefore retain the full electric driving on demand.
  • Electric parking brake & brake auto hold function
  • Connected function through a Smartphone Link Display Audio:

"Support for Apple CarPlay, the smarter, safer way to use your iPhone in the car, lets drivers make calls, get directions optimized for traffic conditions, listen to music, and access messages. Also comes with support for Android Auto™, which brings the Android™ experience into the car in a way that's purpose-built for driving ."

  • Blind Spot Warning (BSW) + Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) – to alert when another vehicle comes from behind that the driver cannot see.
  • Pedestrian Detection Function added to an improved Forward Collision Mitigation system (FCM).
  • Automatic high beams.
  • LED front fog lamps.
  • AC 1500W Power Supply: allows for connecting electric equipment up to 1,500W and up to approximately 4 hours solely on battery driving - engine generation will seamlessly relay the output afterwards.
