Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Concept-S teased

Sportier plug-in hybrid model will be revealed at the Paris Motor Show next month

A new version of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV will be revealed at the Paris Motor Show next month – promising sportier handling and a more aggressive design. Called the Concept-S, it could go on sale as soon as next year.

Details are scarce at the moment, and so far all we’ve got to go on are these dark sketches released by Mitsubishi’s global media team. However, what we can see is a wider, lower body and a set of big, sporty alloy wheels. At the front there are some sharp white accents (possibly LED daytime running lights), while at the rear a red stripe stretches right across the back.

The Concept-S is a model that MMC (Mitsubishi Motors Corporation) proposes as a special package for the Outlander PHEV. Although unconfirmed, that could allow existing owners to add their sporty kit to their cars as aftersales accessories – as well as speccing them from new.

Mitsubishi said: “The Outlander PHEV Concept-S takes sporty and sophisticated as the theme for its design.”

We’ll learn more about the Concept-S in the coming weeks, as we build up to the Paris Motor Show, which starts on 2 October.

The existing Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV can travel up to 32 miles on electric power alone, return 148mpg and emit just 44g/km of CO2. The plug-in hybrid technology makes it the only SUV currently on sale that is exempt from road tax, and at just £28,249 (after the £5,000 government grant) – it costs exactly the same as the equivalent diesel model.
