Seeing as the hybrid version of Mitsubishi’s already impressive Outlander accounts for a whopping 50 per cent of sales in the UK’s EV and PHEV sector, it must be doing something right. Not only do you get a stylish SUV that is equally comfortable on long journeys and over rugged terrain, you also benefit from an extremely affordable eco-friendly vehicle, which costs hardly anything to run in the city. In spite of its affordability, the Outlander PHEV still comes with an abundance of equipment, including infotainment options, driver assistance systems, and cutting-edge safety kit. Mitsubishi says the Outlander PHEV combines the four-wheel drive practicality of the iconic Shogun with performance-driven technology developed for the Lancer EVO, and it's difficult to disagree.
Outlander PHEV Features
The Outlander PHEV is capable of achieving up to 166MPG thanks to the combination of an extremely efficient 2.0-litre petrol engine, twin electric motors, and a lithium-ion battery.
With the Outlander PHEV producing ultra-low emissions of just 41 CO2 g/km, it is completely exempt from Vehicle Excise Duty as well as the London Congestion Charge.
When behind the wheel, you are given complete control over how and when the battery is used via various features including power saving, eco mode, and regenerative braking.
To ensure you never run out of battery life, the Outlander PHEV can be plugged in at all major public charging points throughout the UK as well as at home via a standard mains socket.
With kit including Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Mitigation, Lane Departure Warning, ABS with EBD and a 360-degree camera, the Outlander PHEV is remarkably safe.
Before you step inside the Outlander PHEV, you can remotely adjust the climate control, see how much juice the battery has, and decide when you want it to start charging via an app for iOS and Android.
In addition to a complete overview of the battery and power usage, the Outlander PHEV’s multi-communication system gives you entertainment and navigation functionality too.
On all PHEV variants you get Mitsubishi’s S-AWC (Super All-Wheel Control) technology, which oversees the operation of the electronically controlled, on-demand four-wheel drive system.
