January 2008

Production transferred to Holland

In order to keep up with the strong demand for Outlander in Europe and new Lancer worldwide, Mitsubishi Motors Corporation decided to transfer production of the Outlander (for European markets) to its regional production hub (Netherlands Car B.V. [NedCar], Born, the Netherlands) during 2008.

The company originally built Outlanders at its Nagoya Plant in Okazaki, Aichi Prefecture and the new 4007 and C-Crosser SUVs for PSA Peugeot Citroën at its Mizushima Plant in Kurashiki, Okayama Prefecture. As production of the Europe-market Outlander shifts from Nagoya to NedCar, production of the new SUVs supplied to PSA Peugeot Citroën will be transferred from Mitsubishi Motors' Mizushima Plant to its Nagoya Plant.

March 2008

SST transmission added

Mitsubishi’s twin-clutch Sports Shift Transmission (SST) offered in Outlander from Spring 2008. Benefits include: quick shifting versus normal manual transmissions, almost no power loss when shifting versus traditional automatic transmissions, lower fuel consumption and emissions versus automatics due to the inherent efficiency of the system’s gear changes. UK models came complete with paddle shifters, dual mode (Normal/Sport) and Hill Start Assist functions.

April 2010

Outlander facelifted

With similar front to Lancer and Colt. New features include a twin-clutch Sports Shift Transmission SST (also found on Lancer Evolution and Lancer Ralliart models).

The first derivative of the new range was a Special Edition variant, the “Juro” available at Mitsubishi dealers from 1 July 2007, the rest of the range from October 2007.

Facelifted Outlander featured the following product enhancements:

New Exterior Appearance Features:

  • Distinctive ‘Jet-Fighter’ grille gives Outlander the family face of Mitsubishi – in line with Lancer Evolution, Lancer and Colt
  • New front skid plate
  • New side sill garnish – black material with chrome accent
  • New colour keyed door mirror with side turn lamp
  • New chrome bezels for front fog lamps

The interior passenger environment is dramatically enhanced with the introduction of faux leather and contrasting stitching on the dashboard and door panels. Furthermore, a new high contrast colour LCD instrument meter display gives a higher quality feel than the current display.

The SST ‘auto’ transmission (except Equippe) uses two clutches, one to engage the gear in use the other to pre-select the next gear required, which ensures that the gear change takes place instantaneously. This innovative technology saves on CO 2 emissions and massively reduces power loss through the range. With no torque converter, this 6-speed TC-SST gearbox is more efficient than a normal automatic.

Hill start assist automatically holds the brakes for about 2 seconds to prevent the vehicle from slipping backwards on steep slopes.

Electric Time and Alarm Control System (ETACS) controls the functionality of all electronic devices on board

The ESS system automatically detects severe braking to engage the hazard warning lights and also increase braking efficiency. This is just one of the innovative technologies incorporated into the Outlander range to give it its Euro NCAP
