Mitsubishi has introduced the Outlander PHEV Concept-S this week at the Paris Motor Show.
Likely previewing an upcoming facelift for the mid-size SUV, the concept adopts a fresh front fascia with an "X" layout and chrome accents along with LED headlights & fog lights. There's also a different grille while on the inside it has a black & burgundy color scheme with a black wood grain trim with silver accents. The center console has been designed with influences from the Japanese traditional black lacquered boxes and the cabin also comes with hand-stitched soft leather upholstery.
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Concept-S is 4760mm long, 1840mm wide, 1700mm tall and has a wheelbase that spans at 2670mm. Power is provided by a plug-in hybrid system encompassing a four-cylinder 2.0-liter gasoline engine teamed up with two electric motors and a 12 kWh lithium-ion battery pack.
Just like the production Outlander PHEV, the concept can provide a total range of 547 miles (880 km) and working solely on electric power it will do 34 miles (55 km) before running out of juice. When used as a hybrid, the vehicle is capable of returning an outstanding 143.5 mpg US (172.3 mpg UK or 1.6 liters / 100 km).
