2023 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross PHEV Price and Specs: Prices go up to $1000

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross PHEV will join the Outlander PHEV by offering owners the option to power their home appliances from a socket in the trunk – which will be available in the top two variants.

  • 2023 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross PHEV – prices and specifications
  • Vehicle-to-Load (V2L) technology now available
  • Minor gear updates for all three classes
  • Starting at $47,290 plus road charges

Mitsubishi Australia has announced a handful of updates for the 2023 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross PHEV – including the ability to power certain household appliances – when the plug-in hybrid SUV arrives in March.

For 2023, Mitsubishi has increased the prices of its three Eclipse Cross PHEV (plug-in hybrid) variants by as much as $1000, with the base ES class now starting at $47,290 plus road cost – up $300 more at the previous price.

The mid-range Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross PHEV Aspire class was hit with a price increase of $750 – now $51,250 plus road costs – while the flagship Exceed variant is offered from $55,990, a premium of $1000 equivalent to US dollars.

2023 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Exceed PHEV

According to Mitsubishi Australia, the Aspire and Exceed classes of the 2023 Eclipse Cross PHEV will now come with “Vehicle-to-Load” (or V2L) capabilities, allowing the battery to both source and receive power.

A 240-volt socket in the trunk of the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross PHEV allows you to connect household appliances with a rated power of up to 1500 watts.

The technology was recently introduced in the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, although the larger Outlander comes with two 240V sockets instead of the Eclipse Cross PHEV’s single socket. If you opt for the ES variants of both SUVs, you will miss the technology.

Additional changes to the 2023 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross PHEV include USB-A and USB-C ports for second-row occupants.

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross ES PHEV ES will now also come standard with rear parking sensors, previously only available on the Aspire and Exceed.

Cosmetic updates were made to the Eclipse Cross Aspire PHEV, which now features a silver lower front bumper (with a silver insert), black grille surround, black side door panels, and a black and silver rear lower bumper.

The flagship Eclipse Cross Exceed PHEV has also received a minor trim upgrade – now featuring a power tailgate with hands-free operation and one-touch opening – while buyers can get a new light gray leather interior (pictured below) at no extra cost.

Mitsubishi’s Eclipse Cross PHEV is still powered by a 2.4-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with 94 kW/199 Nm coupled with two electric motors – a 70 kW/195 Nm motor at the rear and a 60 kW/137 Nm motor in front.

While Mitsubishi doesn’t provide combined power and torque figures, thanks to its 13.8kWh battery, the SUV can travel up to 55km on electricity – according to Australian test figures – and achieve a fuel consumption of 1.9l/100km.

The 2023 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross PHEV scheduled for release in Australian showrooms in March 2023.

  • Eclipse Cross ES PHEV AWD – $47,290 (up $300)
  • Eclipse Cross Aspire PHEV AWD – $51,240 (up $750)
  • Eclipse Cross Exceed PHEV AWD – $55,990 (up $1000)
