"The Outlander PHEV has gained a third row of seats for the first time, which aligns it in seating capacity with the regular petrol-powered 2022 Outlander. A two-row version will continue to be available" one of the article says.
So we get a 7 seater, very interesting. It appears Mitsi has made changes in the rear motor/inverter control unit placement to make that available . See :https://www.carsguide.com.au/car-news/2 ... ving-range
where it says " Mitsubishi says it freed up space for the third row by unifying the rear motor with the control unit, while moving the control unit has also made for a quieter cabin".
I also read it has a bigger body which also helps the bigger fuel tank I would think.
Also this : "Mitsubishi has added a new one-pedal driving mode, allowing you to accelerate and decelerate simply by pressing and releasing the accelerator pedal". Sounds good for those people that bitched about this here at one time.
Good improvements all round so far IMO. Might trade in my oldest Phev for it.
