According to a statement from the Japanese manufacturer, the new concept previews a special package for the standard Outlander plug-in hybrid and features a “refined interior and exterior design”.
Mitsubishi calls this a “Sporty and Sophisticated” theme and, as you can see, the main changes up front include an enlarged central air intake, plus distinctive C-shaped accents that run alongside the headlights and down towards the front wheel arches. This setup is mimicked at the rear, where a redesigned taillight design is also visible.
Based on the original Outlander PHEV, which itself premiered at Paris back in 2012, power for the Concept-S is expected to come from the same four-cylinder 2.0-litre petrol and twin electric motor system. This will see up to 204bhp sent to all four wheels, resulting in a 0-62mph time of 11 seconds and a 106mph top speed, whilst offering a claimed 148mpg and emissions as low as 44g/km CO2.
