Mitsubishi officially announced today that at the 2014 Paris Motor Show it will unveil the all-new Outlander PHEV Concept-S. Two years after it unveiled the Outlander PHEV plug-in hybrid electric Twin Motor SUV, Mitsubishi prepared the new Outlander PHEV Concept-S in order to propose a special package.

According to the short press release, the new Outlander PHEV Concept-S arrives with a refined interior and a new exterior design. Mitsubishi says that the concept car follows the “Sporty and Sophisticated” design line and promises to offer an unique combination of spirited 4x4 performance from its twin-motor PHEV system and superior on-road performance.

There are no words about the powertrain but we do know that the current Outlander PHEV is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine as well as two electric motors that offer a combined output o 200 hp (149 kW) and 337 Nm (249 lb-ft) of torque.

The vehicle is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 11 seconds while top speed is limited at 106 mph or 170 km/h.

Using just the 12 kWh lithium-ion battery, the Outlander PHEV offers a range of 34 miles or 55 km, while using both the petrol engine and the energy stored in the battery the range is an impressive 800 km or 547 miles. In the hybrid mode, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has a fuel consumption of 1.6 l/100 km (143.5 mpg). More detail to be revealed!
