    “The new Outlander PHEV is Mitsubishi’s flagship SUV that brings together its expertise in PHEV and S-AWC (Super All-wheel Control) technology. It elevates both the appeal of an SUV and an EV, with its smooth, powerful acceleration and the safe, secure driving performance in various situations. The exterior expresses a bold, fixating presence with a solid stance and dependability for drivers. The interior has a high-quality and advanced space with a third-row seating, and the horizontal instrument panel makes it easy to understand the vehicle posture while driving, and adds a feeling of robustness and spaciousness,” the award-giving body stated in its website.

    The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV features thick, horizontal proportions and jet tail fin pillars inspired by the vertical tail of airplanes while its horizontally-sculpted panel adds a feeling of robustness and spaciousness.

    "We are truly honored that the all-new Outlander, which epitomizes the new generation of Mitsubishi design, has received one of the most renowned design awards in the world," MMC General Manager for Design Seiji Watanabe was quoted as saying.

    "The all-new Outlander has been well received by customers in Japan since the start of sales last December, and this award will give us further momentum to introduce our all-new flagship to even more users," the executive noted.
