Now we are sure that the 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander is on the way. The spy shots are confirming the futuristic look. Well, there is still a lot of time until the debut, so some changes are possible. Still, designers will make the only PHEV model in the lineup breathtaking for the upcoming generation.
According to Motor1, the new 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander will share the platform with the new Nissan Rogue, which is again, based on the new architecture. Having this in mind, the upcoming crossovers will be lighter and more efficient than before. Nissan-Mitsubishi-Renault alliance made all three companies competitive in different markets. Nissan is dominant in the US, although the Mitsubishi offers the PHEV crossover there.
New Platform for the 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander
Sources are confirming the 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander will be based on the new Rogue. Still, we don’t know too much about it, although test mules are out there. Ariya is a new concept, which debuted at the latest auto show in Tokyo. The platform offers more flexibility, especially towards the electric drivetrains. This is a logical step after the Outlander PHEV.
On the other hand, Mitsubishi recently presented the Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer. This is another way in development for the new Outlander. The off-road oriented concept is definitely a refreshment for all current versions of Mitsubishi crossovers and SUVs.
PHEV and Pure Electric Range
The range for the new 2021 Outlander will depend on the size of the electric battery under the seats. If the crossover SUV goes all-electric, the vehicle is going to return at least 200 miles. Otherwise, the PHEV system uses petrol as fuel. Still, there is a possibility of riding this model by getting power only from the electric source. In this case, the range drops to 50 miles. The new Outlander will improve these numbers.
When Will 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander Be Available?
No matter which concept the 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander is going to use, the debut is not expected before the final quarter of 2020. Ariya and Engelberg platforms are ready and the development has started. Spy photos are there to blast the interest among fans and experts.
