Check out two teaser photos of the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-In Hybrid Concept-S model. This new SUV concept was presented at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. Here’s what we know so far about the upcoming PHEV.
PHEV Engine and Twin-Motor System
The 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Concept-S will be powered by a twin-motor hybrid drive system, which includes two electric motors, and a 2.0L petrol engine with four cylinders. The whole system should be able to deliver about 200 hp, while its fuel efficiency should be improved as well. The power will be transferred to all four wheels (AWD). More details will be known in the upcoming month.
2015 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Concept-S Design
If I understand right, the Concept-S shown in the two teasers posted here is just a special package that will change the exterior and interior design of the regular 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-In Hybrid model, making it more modern, sporty and elegant. So, don’t expect any major design changes, just some improvements.
The PHEV Concept-S will get the new front end, with a smaller grille, but larger air intakes, thin headlights, and a pair of C-shaped chrome arches stretching across the bumper. This is quite similar to the 2013 Mitsubishi Concept XR-PHEV model. On the back, you can see the all-new taillights that stretch across the tailgate, just below the rear window. Below them, there are also some arches, similar to those on the front. It looks to me that there will be two flat tailpipes below the rear bumper.
New Outlander Concept-S Plug-In Hybrid Release Date
Like I already said at the beginning of this article, the new 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Concept-S is scheduled to make an official appearance at the upcoming Paris Motor Show this October. All details will be unveiled by then, and we will know all the performance details, and be able to see the final design of this concept. Rumored price tag for this special package is about $35,000. Expect the new model to be released for sale soon after its debut.
