So now we have more details of the 2014 Outlander PHEV from the Paris motor show. It will use the 4J11 rated at about 150hp plus two motors each making 80hp. Thats a grand total of 310 combined hp. The motors and engine are mated to Mitsus S-AWC. These specs almost sound at home with an Evo. Could this be essentially what we will see on the Evo XI minus the plug in and a smaller battery?

The way I picture the hybrid system is as a turbo. The engine acts like a generator while normal operation generating electricity. Then stores the energy in the battery until you smash on the gas all the sudden releasing it all for a boost to the motors each driving an axle like in the Outlander. While driven like a regular car you could be getting upwards of 40mpg! Mitsu also has a new disel option for the outlander with lots more torque. So we could possibly see that in the Evo as well.

Hmmm, really depends on how long it takes for the thing to recharge the battery and how long that burst of power can last.

My wifes Prius C charges the battery fairly quick. From near empty to full in about a mile or so depending how fast your going. That system is meant for efficiency and maximum energy storage for hybrid driving. If Mitsu engineers it as a power booster it can recharge much faster and require less energy storage.

I'm hoping it would be a little sooner than a mile especially if this is a performance hybrid. The idea of electric motors with full torque at 0 rpm on an AWD platform sounds like a hoot. But, I don't want to "wait till my battery charges yo!".

Haha yeah I hear you. I used the analogy with a prius because thats not a performance hybrid. The Evo will likely charge faster, albeit dump it faster as well. Who knows maybe they will have fail safes that wont allow the battery to go empty in case you need boost again before being able to recharge. The Prius does this as well, its nearly impossible to run the battery empty.

If they go with a "push button for high performance boost when battery is fully charged" system I don't see it working well in a production WRC class. A diesel, though... Maybe?

Since when has Mitsu been in WRC?

This thread isn't news or rumors, just speculation and dreams.

Yeah that was straight from Mitsubishi. It's an interesting concept as you get the benefits of ample torque for bottom end and I would expect the electric motor to kick in at higher rpm. It soulds like it could work but it's all going to come down to execution and price.

It may not be "news" but defenitely rumor worthy.

Is it coinsidence that the Outlander PHEV will be coming to America.around the same time the XI is due? Or that its specs feel like they belong in an evo, 300+hp andSAWC.

Also heres some info on the 4N14 diesel engine that could possibly power the XI. Scroll down to the bottom and it will be PDF files on the different upcoming mitsu engines.

"Rumors" from Published sources, not random Joe Public speculation. Otherwise this forum would be filled with threads from various people wanting The Homer.

Not trying to be a jerk or anything but one could say the same thing about the 2014 WRX

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?...ulltext=Search

My wife bought our 2007 Outlander a year before the X was released. When the X was released almost a year later we found out it shared many things with our new outlander. I look at this new Outlander as a window into what new tech will be in the XI.
