Mitsubishi Australia has announced pricing and specification details for the all-new Eclipse Cross PHEV small SUV ahead of the plug-in hybrid’s launch next month.
Three variants of the Eclipse Cross PHEV are on offer, with the entry-level ES priced from $46,490 plus on-road costs, while the mid-range Aspire and flagship Exceed charge $49,990 and $53,990 respectively.
The Eclipse Cross PHEV pairs a 94kW/199Nm 2.4-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine (running on the Atkinson cycle) with 60kW/137Nm front and 70kW/195Nm rear electric motors for all-wheel drive.

With a 13.8kWh battery fitted onboard, the Eclipse Cross PHEV has an electric-only range of 55km (ADR 81/02), with it not only able to charge while on the move via regenerative braking in any drive mode, but also by way of the petrol engine (Series Hybrid Mode).
An AC charger with a Type 2 plug can fully replenished the battery’s capacity in as little as 3.5 hours, while a DC fast charger with a CHAdeMO plug can take it from zero to 80 per cent in 25 minutes.
Of note, bi-directional (V2H/V2G) charging is also supported by the Eclipse Cross PHEV, for when the required infrastructure becomes available in the not-too-distant future.
For reference, no matter the variant, the Eclipse Cross PHEV’s claimed fuel consumption on the combined-cycle test (ADR 81/02) is 1.9L per 100km.
Standard equipment in the ES includes LED daytime running lights, 18-inch alloy wheels, an 8.0-inch touchscreen multimedia system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, digital radio, a four-speaker sound system, climate control, autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning, cruise control and a reversing camera.
The Aspire adds LED headlights, an eight-speaker sound system, heated front seats, a power-adjustable driver’s seatm micro-suede/synthetic leather upholstery, adaptive cruise control (with stop and go functionality), blind-spot monitoring, rear-cross traffic alert, surround-view cameras and front parking sensors.
Meanwhile, the Exeed also gets Super-All Wheel Control (S-AWC), a ‘double’ sunroof, satellite navigation, a head-up display, a heated steering wheel, a power-adjustable passenger seat, leather upholstery, a black headliner and ultrasonic mis-acceleration mitigation.
Like other Mitsubishi Australia models, the new Toyota Corolla Cross Hybrid rival comes with up to 10 years of warranty (the battery is covered for eight years or 160,000km), roadside assistance and capped-price servicing.
