Mitsubishi Outlander May Get Ralliart PHEV in 2024Mitsubishi
  • It's not official yet, but news that Mitsubishi is readying a Ralliart version of the Outlander PHEV for next year aligns with the company's announcements these last few years.

  • Mitsubishi said in 2021 it would bring the Ralliart name back and showed off the Vision Ralliart concept in 2022.

  • If a report from 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 kept quiet about its Ralliart performance subbrand. In the U.S., we last saw vehicles with the name in 2014, when Mitsubishi used them on the Galant and Lancer sedans. But the rally and off-road racing brand was never going to disappear forever, and Mitsubishi said as much in 2021. Then, at the 2022 Tokyo auto show, Mitsubishi introduced the Mitsubishi Vision Ralliart concept, based on the Outlander SUV, to put some fresh metal on this storied name.

According to the Japanese outlet Best Car, Mitsubishi is now getting ready 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 powertrain used in the current Outlander. This model will reportedly produce 286 horsepower, up from the standard hybrid's 248 horsepower, and will cost around $40,000–$45,000. Visually, it's likely to resemble the concept, pictured here.

The Outlander and other future Ralliart vehicles might be seen racing worldwide. Mitsu fans know that Ralliart made a name for itself in the 1980s and 1990s, participating in races like the World Rally Championship and the Paris-Dakar Rally. Officially, all Mitsubishi is staying 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 valuing 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' is realized. Still, we're getting more excited about going along for the ride.
