New frontierNew frontier  - Overview - Mitsubishi Outlander

During the course of 2012, MMC will also take advantage of the built-in possibilities of Mitsubishi Outlander's versatile platform & powerful electronic architecture to add an EV-based plug-In hybrid power-train to the ICE Outlander range.

This will be a fully integrated solution, based on MMC's EV technology and also, making the best use of MMC's extensive 4-Wheel-Drive expertise, offering a choice of driving modes including:

Pure (Twin Motor 4WD EV).
Series (Twin Motor 4WD EV supported by ICE generator).
Parallel (Twin Motor 4WD EV supplemented by ICE at higher speed - Electric motors assist in powerful acceleration without any gear shift).

When fitted to the new Mitsubishi Outlander, the Mitsubishi Plug-in Hybrid EV system will allow for a range and very low CO2 emissions similar to that of MMC's Concept PX-MiEV II (over 800 km and a target of below 50 g/km).
