The Mitsubishi Outlander Ralliart Plug-In Hybrid may arrive in 2024

It’s not official yet, but the news that Mitsubishi is planning a Ralliart version of the Outlander PHEV for next year matches the company’s announcements in recent years.

Mitsubishi says it will bring back the Ralliart name in 2021 and introduce the Vision Ralliart concept in 2022. If reports from Best Cars are correct, we can expect to see a 286-horsepower Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Ralliart in 2024.

For the past decade, Mitsubishi has been silent about its Ralliart Performance brand. In the US, we last saw cars with this name in 2014, when Mitsubishi used it in its Galant and Lancer sedans. Mitsubishi said in 2021 that the smashed, outspoken logo won’t go away forever.

Then, at the 2022 Tokyo Motor Show, Mitsubishi introduced the Mitsubishi Vision Ralliart concept, based on the Outlander SUV, to add some new jewels to the legendary name.

According to the best Japanese newspaper, Mitsubishi is now preparing to take the next step. The site reports that a production version of the Vision Ralliart concept will arrive in 2024 with revised suspension,

increased body stiffness and more power from the same 2.4-liter engine and hybrid powertrain used in the Outlander. This model is said to make 286 horsepower, up from the standard 248-horsepower hybrid, and cost between $40,000 and $45,000. Visually, it will probably look like the concept shown here.


Outlander and other Ralliart cars can be found in races around the world. Mitsuo fans know that Rally Art made a name for itself in the 1980s and 1990s, taking part in races such as the World Rally Championship and the Paris-Dakar Rally. Officially,

all today’s Mitsubishi has left with leader Ralliart is that the brand will evolve to reflect the “Mitsubishi Motors-ness”, “[spirit] of manufacturing” and the highest technology of Mitsubishi Motors, while building on his legacy.

As we said two years ago when Mitsubishi announced the return of RallyArt, we’re not 100% sure what it’ll look like when Mitsubishi Motors materializes. However, we are more than happy to make the trip.
