|   Thursday, October 02, 2014
Two years after the success of the revolutionary hybrid SUV Outlander PHEV was launched at the Paris Motor Show 2012, Mitsubishi again choose the world class exhibition "Mondial de l'Automobile" - this time to launch a new PHEV concept: the Outlander PHEV Concept-S.

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Concept-S is the concept trough which the company is proposing a special version of the Outlander PHEV model series; it comes with a refined design both on the interior and exterior, providing a unique driving experience.


Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Concept-S is also the big surprise the Japanese brand brings to the Paris Motor Show. It shows a sporting, more sophisticated version and from a visual point of view it displays the Japanese philosophy in the hybrid SUV segment. Although it is no different from a technological point of view compared to an Outlander PHEV, the Concept-S looks different because of the aesthetic package applied by designers.

It has a new front grille, front headlights extended towards the wings, and chrome accents on the entire bodywork. The new look is mainly inspired by the latest concepts from Mitsubishi, namely the XR-PHEV and GC-PHEV.

The new Outlander PHEV's aesthetic elements apply to create a Concept-S in different sizes, although the wheelbase remains unchanged at 2,670 millimeters. The concept has a length of 4,760 mm, a width of 1,842 mm and a height of 1,700 millimeters. The engine is the same as the series version Outlander PHEV and this means that the dynamic performance and fuel consumption values ​​should be the same, or very close to the series car.

The car has 5 seats for passengers. In terms of motorization, the Outlander PHEV Concept-S benefits from a Plug-in Hybrid Electric system: two synchronous motors with permanent magnets, a lithium-ion battery (12kWh) and a 4-cylinder gasoline engine displacing 2.0 liters.

Unlike the shiny exterior design, the black and burgundy tones of the interior design express quality and sophistication, offering to all passengers a refreshing feeling.
The interior of the Outlander PHEV Concept-S takes a premium approach, being dressed in black wood, and leather and silver accents for different ornaments. On top of that, the seat upholstery forms a 3D surface. This effect is realized by horizontal stripes that stand out, providing superior fixing, while vertical lines are elaborated in such a way as to easily follow the shape of the body.

Other elements remain unchanged from the series version. The Japanese brand representatives did not specify what their intentions regarding a series version of Outlander PHEV Concept-S are however. There is the possibility that it is just a design study or that this exhibit will influence the Outlander's successor.

At Paris, Mitsubishi will also present 11 models (5 models for the press day) including the Outlander PHEV rally version which took part in the FIA Asia Cross Country Rally 2014. Other models which have European production specifications, as well as the i-MiEV model, and more electric models (EV) and hybrid (PHEV) will be on show too.
