Frankfurt shows off new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

I’m looking forward to this reaching the UK – especially the V2H option.

Mitsubishi confirmed that the new 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, which in July went on sale in Japan, will be unveiled in Frankfurt at the 66th International Motor Show (IAA).

Sales of revamped Outlander PHEV in Europe will begin in September.

On the stage Mitsubishi will also present its rally version of the Outlander PHEV, which will compete in the Baja Portalegre 500 cross-country rally (after its rally in Asia).

The Japanese manufacturer for the very first time seems to willing to sell Outlander PHEV in Europe with optional V2H system (previously available only in Japan).

With ICE backup, and external V2H bi-directional CHAdeMO charger, the Outlander PHEV could supply power in emergency situations.

“MMC will also have a display outlining Vehicle-to-Home (V2H) electricity supply system that will be available for the new Outlander PHEV.”

Total sales of Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV already stand at some 70,000.
