Since Mitsubishi joined alliance with Renault and Nissan, it has tried to make best use of shared resources from these precious partners. Thus, it’s understandable why the next-gen Mitsubishi Outlander might roll out of a Renault plant, specifically at Douai plant. However, this is just our speculation as official information of the factory has not been announced yet.
Meanwhile, a different source claimed that the all-new Outlander will launch its production by 2021 with increased body length and width, using CMF-C/D platform of the Alliance. The fresh report suggested it might apply Nissan X-Trail underpinnings and this generation will also be presented with a hybrid version.
While waiting for the next-gen Mitsubishi Outlander to be out in 2020/2021, car fans can expect the release of facelifted Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV which was introduced at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.
