2021 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross PHEV uses Outlander’s powertrain

The Outlander plug-in hybrid’s powertrain is now available (outside the US) in the smaller, more affordable Eclipse Cross.

Unveiled in Australia recently, the Eclipse Cross PHEV has a 2.4L with 94kW (126hp) and 199Nm (147 lb-ft). There’s also a front electric motor with 60kW (80hp) and 137Nm (101 lb-ft), and a rear electric motor with 70kW (94hp) and 195Nm (144 lb-ft).

A 13.8kWh lithium-ion battery can be recharged at 10A/240V power outlet in around 7 hours, and has a WLTP driving range of about 55km (34mi).

There’s an EV mode available up to 135km/h (84mph), a series hybrid mode up to 70km/h (44mph) where the gas engine charges the battery, and a parallel hybrid mode above 70km/h (44mph).
