Mitsubishi has released new details about the Outlander PHEV, ahead of its debut at the Paris Motor Show.

Previewed by the PX-MiEV II concept, the production model has a 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine, a 12 kWh lithium-ion battery and two electric motors (one front, one rear) that produce 82 PS (60 kW / 81 hp) and up to 195 Nm (144 lb-ft) of torque. This enables the crossover to travel approximately 55 km (34 miles) on electricity alone and up to 880 km (547 miles) overall. In terms of efficiency, Mitsubishi expects a combined fuel economy rating of 61 km/liter (1.6 L/100km / 143.5 mpg US / 172.3 mpg UK).

In order to get these impressive figures, the model has three different drive modes:

  • Pure (electric-only)
  • Series (electric motors running with the petrol engine recharging the batteries)
  • Parallel (electric motors and petrol engine working together to provide motivation)

The Outlander PHEV will be launch in Japan early next year. It will eventually be offered in Europe, North America and other international markets.
