At the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, Mitsubishi announced that the Outlander PHEV would get a larger engine and a larger lithium-ion battery.

This improved powerplant has not yet reached the US version of Outlanders, but a new report from AutoGuide.com says it will change by the 2021 model year. The publication showed an updated hybrid installation among the recently created Mitsubishi VIN 2021 system.

According to the publication, the 2021 Outlander PHEV will be powered by a 2.4-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine with a return of 126 horsepower (94 kilowatts). The number of horsepower of the new engine was previously a mystery. The unit will mate with two electric motors with a capacity of 93 hp. (69 kW). The battery is increasing from 12.0 kilowatt hours to 13.8.

Mitsubishi is working on a global SUV upgrade. The current model debuted in the 2014 model year, which happened two years before the entry of Mitsubishi into the Renault-Nissan alliance.

According to rumors, the new Outlander will be based on the same platform as the next Nissan Rogue, which means that the Outlander will increase in size, borrowing an appearance similar to the concept of the Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer.
