A big reveal is happening soon.

The new Mitsubishi Outlander has been a smash hit in the US and the Japanese automaker is about to capitalize on the crossover’s success even more. Mitsubishi has officially announced the previously teased 2023 Outlander plug-in hybrid will have its global debut on October 28. The event will be live-streamed on the carmaker’s website.

For now, a few new photos of the Outlander PHEV have been released and – no surprise – it looks identical to the gas-engined version. There is one main exception: a new black roof. Aside from the usual “PHEV” badges, the Outlander PHEV is a carbon copy. The same goes for the interior, evidenced by the single image released today.

We're seeing a right-hand-drive photo because of the global reveal. Don't expect any changes other than PHEV-specific information on the driver's gauge cluster. The outgoing Outlander PHEV has played a key role in Mitsubishi's sales, especially in the US. It's affordable and offers fairly good fuel economy, but has been showing its age for quite some time. The PHEV variant soldiered on for an additional model year following the regular model's complete redesign.

The Outlander is also very closely related to the also-new Nissan Rogue. It shares a platform, a 2.5-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine, and all other core underpinnings.

The PHEV model will utilize a twin-motor four-wheel-drive system with a motor at each axle. An updated version of Mitsubishi's Super All-Wheel Control is standard. Mitsubishi designers went to great lengths to distinguish the Outlander's styling from that of the Rogue. The “Dynamic Shield” design has been updated, giving the crossover some serious presence. Sales so far have been stellar.

The 2023 Outlander PHEV will go on sale in the US in the second half of next year. Buyers will be able to select from ten exterior colors, such as Red Diamond, White Diamond, and the new Black Diamond. The gas model's standard third-row seating and 20-inch wheels will be carried over as well.
