Mitsubishi May Add an Outlander Ralliart Plug-In Hybrid in 2024

  • It’s not official yet, but news that Mitsubishi is readying a Ralliart version of the Outlander PHEV for next year is consistent with the company’s announcements over the past few years.
  • Mitsubishi said it would bring back the Ralliart name in 2021 and showed the Vision Ralliart concept in 2022.
  • As a report of Best car is accurate, we can expect to see a 286 hp Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Ralliart sometime in 2024.

For the past decade or so, Mitsubishi has remained silent on its Ralliart performance sub-brand. In the US, we last saw vehicles with the name in 2014, when Mitsubishi used it on the Galant and Lancer sedans. But the rally and off-road brand is never going to go away forever, and Mitsubishi said as much in 2021. Then, at the 2022 Tokyo Motor Show, Mitsubishi unveiled the Mitsubishi Vision Ralliart concept, based on the Outlander SUV, to some fresh metal on this story name.

According to the Japanese outlet Best car, Mitsubishi is now preparing to take the next step. The site reports that a production version of the Vision Ralliart concept will arrive sometime in 2024 with a modified suspension, increased body rigidity and more output from the same 2.4-liter engine and plug-in hybrid drivetrain used in the current Outlander. This model will reportedly make 286 horsepower, up from the standard hybrid’s 248 horsepower, and will cost around $40,000–$45,000. Visually, it will probably look like the concept, pictured here.

The Outlander and other future Ralliart vehicles may be seen worldwide. Mitsu fans know that Ralliart made a name for itself in the 1980s and 1990s by competing in races such as the World Rally Championship and the Paris-Dakar Rally. Officially, all Mitsubishi remains today about where Ralliart goes from here is that the brand will evolve to showcase the “‘Mitsubishi Motors-ness’ and ‘manufacturing’.” [spirit]’ with the highest technology of Mitsubishi Motors, while appreciating its heritage.”

As we said two years ago, when Mitsubishi announced the return of Ralliart, we’re not 100 percent sure what it will look like when this ‘Mitsubishi Motors-ness’ materializes. Still, we get more excited about riding together.
