Re: Does the 2020 outlander phev have a OEM tow plug?

Hi kehfunah.

All modern cars that are homologated for towing have will have dedicated connector for a vehicle specific towbar wiring loom.
Mitsubishi do not make wiring looms or towbars.
If you buy a towbar wiring kit from Mitsubishi in the UK, you will probably get one manufactured by Right Connections UK Ltd and you will be paying a lot more for it from Mitsubishi.

The Phev towbar wiring connector is covered in black tape & somewhat hidden.
See below. (2015 model).

Hope this is of some help.

You beat me to it. I have a similar picture i was just searching for to post.

That plug is in the same position on all outlanders from ZJ onwards.

And if anyone fancies a challenge, you can access the plug through the hole where the air escape vent sits under the rear bumper, so you dont need to remove the interior trim. I never remove the trim when i fit them, but i do have long arms.

Just so you're aware, if you have rear parking sensors they do not get disengaged when you put the vehicle in Reverse. It's like being back in the 20th century as you have to press the deactivate button which ,of course, deactivates the front ones too.

Here's the connector on a 2018 model. This one was not taped up & hidden like the 2015 model I did.
