Introducing the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle), the full sized family 4x4 SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle) which utilises both electric and petrol power. Built with no compromise, the Outlander PHEV delivers outstanding performance.
Unlike any other SUV, the Outlander PHEV can be driven as an electric vehicle meaning incredible fuel economy and ultra-low emissions on shorter journeys.
When undertaking longer journeys the Outlander PHEV engages its exceptional 2.0 litre petrol engine giving a smooth and refined ride and great fuel economy.
Many electric and hybrid cars suffer from a significant loss of space compared to conventional engine counterparts, with smaller boots and less spacious interiors. Not the Outlander PHEV.
The Outlander PHEV boasts 463 litres of cargo space, that's only 3% less than the standard Outlander.
Fully competitive with comparable vehicles the Outlander PHEV has a towing capacity of 1,500kg, about the weight of a medium caravan.
Utilising a powerful twin-motor four wheel drive system, the Outlander PHEV is integrated with Mitsubishi's proven S-AWC (Super All Wheel Control) system for added traction, the same system found on the legendary Lancer Evolution X.
The most advanced plug-in hybrid in the world
The MMCS Sat-Nav audio touchscreen system displays energy usage and remaining range for both EV and combined power sources so you always know how far you can go.
Ready the car for the journey without even stepping inside it with the multi-function app for the Outlander PHEV.
App features include:
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has achieved the highest level of safety in the Euro NACP safety test, including sporting an Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System (AVAS) which produces an audible warning sound to alert pedestrians since when running on its electric vehicle, the Outlander PHEV is very quiet.
The first mainstream car from a major manufacturer developed from the outset with built-in provisions for either Internal Combustion Engine or PHEV power-trains.
The Outlander PHEV will charge itself using regenerative braking or can be plugged in to an EV charging unit for maximum efficiency.
