Electric motors generate power when the accelerator pedal is released, helping recharge the drive battery and increase the range of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV vehicle.
Capable of 32.5 miles in EV* mode, the average commute can be driven solely on electicity reducing the cost on you and the environment.
The driver of Outlander PHEV can also manually switch to Battery Charge Mode in which the petrol fuelled engine acts as a generator and charges the drive battery whether the vehicle is stationary or on the move. Battery Charge Mode gives the driver the flexibility to use the petrol engine as a generator at any time they want; for example if the driver wants to use EV Drive Mode at a specific time, they can make sure the drive battery has enough energy for that time.
(*EV Drive Mode is an all-electric mode in which the front and rear motors drive the vehicle using only electricity from the drive battery. With zero on-road petrol consumption and zero CO2 emissions the driver can enjoy quiet and very eco-friendly performance in this mode)
Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is powered by the high-capacity 12kWh Lithion-in drive battery (drive battery pack type: Lithion-ion; total voltage(V): 300V; rated capacity (kWh): 12kWh). A battery pack is composed of battery modules, each module containing 80 battery cells made by Lithium Energy Japan. All battery components are tested to ensure to the highest safety standards.
