Mitsubishi to introduce Outlander PHEV with evolved S-AWC


Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) has announced that it will introduce an Outlander PHEV with an evolved version of the brand’s Super-All Wheel Control (S-AWC) system.

The updated S-AWC has an additional braking control system designated to control the brake forces in the rear wheels. The previous S-AWC version only had control over the brakes of the front wheels.

By giving all four wheels their respective braking control systems, the all-new Outlander PHEV will offer increased maneuverability in driving, cornering, and braking. This setup also reduces the load on the front wheels and makes it possible to extract the maximum performance from all four tires.

The evolved S-AWC system will be paired with two motors located at the front and at the rear of the electrified SUV. Like the braking control systems applied on the Outlander PHEV’s four wheels, the two motors will offer optimal distribution of the driving force between the front and rear wheels according to road and driving conditions.

Speaking of which, seven drive modes — including Normal, Gravel, Snow, and Eco — can be selected to suit various particular driving conditions and driving styles.

The all-new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is set to be released in Japan later this year and in the U.S. in the second half of 2022.
