All-new Outlander PHEV model

Since 1954, the iF DESIGN AWARD has honored outstanding design and is recognized as a symbol of design excellence around the world. For the iF DESIGN AWARD 2022, around 11,000 entries submitted from 57 countries were judged by a jury of international design experts based on five criteria - idea, form, function, differentiation and impact.

The all-new Outlander PHEV model is Mitsubishi Motors' flagship model which brings together the best in electrification and all-wheel control technologies, while also utilizing a new-generation platform and an array of advanced technologies. Under the design concept Bold Stride, the exterior features thick, horizontal proportions which produce a bold, fixating presence, and jet tail fin pillars inspired by the vertical tail of airplanes which express the vehicle's powerful and nimble road performance. Inside, materials were carefully selected to enhance the premium feel, while the horizontally-sculpted instrument panel which makes it easy to understand the position of the car while driving adds a feeling of robustness and spaciousness. In winning the iF DESIGN AWARD 2022, the all-new Outlander was especially recognized for its form, function and differentiation.

"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," said Seiji Watanabe, division general manager of design, Mitsubishi Motors. "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."
