Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV 2023: MY22 a sell-out, MMAL looking to secure more stock


Mitsubishi Australia has been surprised by the popularity of the second-generation Outlander PHEV, with all MY22 supply now sold out 

The new Mitsubishi Outlander plug-in hybrid variant is proving to be very popular on Australian shores, with the company telling Chasing Cars that all of the MY22 allocation is now completely sold out. 

Mitsubishi’s Australian arm is working closely with the Japanese head office to supply more units for customers for 2023. 

Mitsubishi said that customers are much more “EV aware” since the launch of the first-generation Outlander PHEV, which could be a contributor to the model’s greater popularity.

The automaker also said that semiconductor and parts supply shortages were some of the reasons for a more limited MY22 supply, however the brand says it is hoping that global supply will improve in 2023. 

The Outlander PHEV range starts from $54,590 before on-road costs for the entry-level ES five seat model and tops out at $68,490 for the top-spec Exceed Tourer seven-seat. 

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV competes against other plug-in hybrid midsize SUVs such as the MG HS and, potentially, Mazda’s forthcoming CX-60.
