Updated Jan 29, 2021 | Same topic: Automotive Industry Updates

The next-gen Mitsubishi Outlander will probably be produced in Europe by 2020.

According to a person working for Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, the next-gen Mitsubishi Outlander is already planned and probably produced in a Renault plant. Though this source did not exactly refer to this compact crossover, the phrase “a large Mitsubishi SUV” in report showed a strong link to much anticipated all-new Outlander.

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.
