The Japanese brand’s first plug-in crossover SUV has officially made its way into the country as Mitsubishi Motors Philippines has officially launched the 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. While the vehicle itself isn’t new as it has been present in other countries it is new to the local automotive market. It brings with it Montero Sport like styling at the front but with a more compact and electrified platform. Just like its bigger brother it too comes with a four-wheel-drive system that utilizes two electric motors to send power to the front or rear wheels when needed.
The 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV greets you with a full suite of LED lighting elements that are complemented with Mitsubishi's signature Dynamic shield design. It gets a uniquely styled two-layer grille at the front complemented by a black plastic accent piece down below. Similar to that of its Siblings the Mitsubishi Montero and Mitsubishi Strada it too gets chrome accents that come from the headlights that curve their way down to the lower bumper.
Moving on to the side and you are greeted by LED repeaters on the side mirrors and a striking beltline that starts from the front quarter panel and extends all the way to the back of the vehicle. Adding to its SUV-like looks are a set of 18-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 225/55 series tires. Thanks to these wheels the Outlander PHEV is granted a ground clearance of 190mm, enough for some light offroading and light dirt trails. It is important to note that the electrified crossover does not come with a spare tire but instead comes with a spare tire repair kit.
At the rear, you are greeted with large LED taillights along with a small dark chrome accent that bridges between the two. Aside from that, you get a shark fin antenna at the top, an integrated rear spoiler, and a silver plastic diffuser at the lower bumper. While the tail light housings contain the brake, park, and signal lights, the reverse lights have been relegated to the lower bumper.
On the inside, you get a leather interior that features 4-way power-adjustability for the driver and an infotainment system that comes with Mitsubishi’s Power Sound System and Smartphone-link display audio. Aside from that, you get 4-speakers and 4 tweeters along with a 60:40 folding rear seat. Climate controls come in the form of a dual-zone automatic system that can easily keep up with the cooling demands of Philippine summer weather. Other interior features for the Outlander PHEV include a 1500W power supply on the floor of the center console and an AC220-240V Type-B power outlet at the back of the vehicle.
In terms of safety, the Outlander PHEV comes with seatbelts for all occupants, ABS with EBD, a full suite of airbags for the front passengers along with curtain airbags for the front and second rows, Active stability control with traction control, Misacceleration Preventing System, 8 corner sensors, a blind-spot warning system, rear cross-traffic alert, lane change assist, collision mitigation system, adaptive cruise control, auto high beam, and a multi around the monitor.
Under the hood of the 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is a 2.4-liter gasoline engine that produces 126hp and 199 Nm of torque. While these numbers may seem low on paper it is important to note that the crossover is aimed at fuel efficiency rather than outright power. The gasoline-driven engine is then paired to an electric motor that pushes out 137 Nm of torque on its own. Power is sent to all wheels via a single speed transmission for both the rear and the front as the electric motors are the primary drive units for the crossover.
If you’re interested in getting your hands on the 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV be prepared to shell out P2,998,000. While it may seem like a hefty price tag for a PHEV vehicle the features and fuel efficiency that it brings is more than enough to justify its cost.
