The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV mid-size crossover has received a maximum five-star rating in the 2013 Euro NCAP (New Car Assessment Program). The five-star rating is the latest of the awards that confirm Mitsubishi Motors Corporation’s @earth TECHNOLOGY – which embodies the carmaker’s Drive@earth pillars of environmental responsibility, driving pleasure, and toughness and safety.

All of these pillars are found in the Outlander PHEV, considered as the pinnacle of @earthTECHNOLOGY. The Outlander PHEV, which features MMC's own Plug-in Hybrid EV System, was named as the "Car of the Year Japan 2013-2014's Innovation Award" for its environmental performance and motive performance.

Also, Outlander PHEV's Plug-in Hybrid EV System was recognized for its environmental performance and driving dynamics by the Automotive Researchers' and Journalists' Conference of Japan (RJC).  In November, the conference also named which the plug-in hybrid EV system as the "RJC Technology of the Year 2014."

As the first plug-in hybrid crossover/sports utility vehicle in the world,  the Outlander PHEV is an "electric car that changes itself" and represents a fusion of the EV technologies that MMC developed for models like the i-MiEV; 4WD technologies honed in the Lancer Evolution; and SUV knowledge obtained from the Pajero.
