The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV spent a long time overseas, but then this plug-in hybrid came to America and the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV started getting a lot more attention. Powered by a 2.0-liter gasoline engine and two high-performance electric motors, it was different for an SUV, but with a full tank of gas and a fully charged 12 kWh battery, it was able to drive over 500 miles. Recently, Mitsubishi Motors and Mitsubishi Electric have debuted all kinds of interesting technology over recent years, like the cool tech at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show by Mitsubishi Electric. Mitsubishi Motors also showed off a new concept at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show, the Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer, as well as an eco-friendly house, the Dendo Drive House. With all these new concepts and gizmos, how can the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV continue to stand out?

Already an award-winning vehicle, Mitsubishi has taken plug-in hybrids by storm with the amazing sales of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. Hoping to bring the automaker more recognition as a new leading auto brand in plug-in hybrid technology, along with the Renault-Nissan Alliance and Alliance Ventures, the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is getting some upgrades. Most of these additions consumers will find on the high-end trims in the lineup, such as the SEL and GT trims. For example, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV SEL trim is now equipped with Forward Collision Mitigation, Automatic High Beams, and Lane Departure Warning on the 2020 model.

Always looking to add new and innovative technology, the GT and the SEL trims come equipped with a new second-generation Smartphone-link Display Audio system for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV GT gets a new Mitsubishi Power Sound System, replacing the Rockford-Fosgate audio system on previous models. In the rear, a second USB charging port is included in the SEL trim, and the GT trim comes with two USB ports and a 110-volt power outlet. Speaking of the seating, the new 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has been increased in comfort, with the second-row seats getting a new, relaxing shape, and the driver’s seat getting an addition of power lumbar support.

To really push the envelope, Mitsubishi Motors wanted to give the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV a little upscale feel. Offered only on the GT trim, consumers can add on the new Premium Interior Package to give the Outlander PHEV a more luxurious feel and then top it off with the new Red Diamond premium color for the SUV. It’s all sounding pretty nice, and with the Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer, another plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) that Mitsubishi Motors is touting as its newest concept, there’s certainly some competition. There is also the new Mitsubishi Lancer crossover in the works, and we know how much consumers love the Mitsubishi Lancer as a sports car.

Then there’s the Dendo Drive House (DDH), practically made for a PHEV like the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. With Alliance Ventures, the Dendo Drive House may become a reality with the help of The Mobility House, a company currently working towards a technology platform that enables the integration of vehicle batteries into the power grid using intelligent charging, energy, and storage solutions with zero-emission energy, usually solar. With Mitsubishi claiming these houses may be able to get home batteries installed by 2020, the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is the perfect choice.
