The new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has many strings to its bow – not least its low running costs. Throw in a smart-looking body, a host of features and the Outlander PHEV is a car with a lot going for it.
A dynamic front-end instantly characterises the new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. A subtle “X” motif is created with a grille that blends seamlessly into front headlights and fog lamps. The iconic three-diamond Mitsubishi takes pride of place on a two-slat chrome grille.
Available in a range of trims, from Outlander PHEV '2' to the Outlander PHEV '5hs', the new Mitsubishi Outlander benefits from a chrome window beltline moulding that provides a distinctive quality to the car’s side. LED daytime running lights add even more lustre to the front-end, while offering greater visibility in poor lighting conditions.
The simple, yet elegant style of the exterior is matched by the cabin of
the new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. Black upholstery is highlighted with
attractive white stitching, while controls, dials and switches are
easily identifiable on an uncluttered dashboard. The Outlander PHEV
comfortably seats five adults with plenty of head and legroom, even at
Plug-in hybrid electric vehicle technology is at your fingertips with the new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. With the simple push of a button you can engage Regenerative Braking which, during normal driving mode, charges the battery. You can also charge the battery using the petrol engine or conserve battery power entirely so that you can use it later. Press ‘CHRG’ when you want the petrol engine to charge the battery and press ‘SAVE’ when you want to conserve battery power for a later time. The controls are located just below the gear knob.
Download the Outlander PHEV remote control app for your Android or iOS smartphone and you’ll be able to operate a range of functions and analyse data for the vehicle. You can programme the Outlander PHEV to charge itself, operate climate control and easily discover how much charge time is remaining. Easily keep an eye on fuel consumption with a three-digit mpg display.
Charging the Outlander PHEV couldn’t be easier. Simply use a standard mains socket or a dedicated EV charger. The latter method reduces the charge time from five hours to three and a half hours. There are also thousands of charging points around the UK.
With three drive modes, the new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has tremendous flexibility. In EV mode you can drive up to 33 miles on battery power alone – and, of course, you’ll be producing zero emissions. Series Hybrid mode utilises the petrol engine to generate electricity for the battery to power the motor – ideal when the battery charge begins to fall below a desirable level. It also produces more power when hill-climbing or overtaking. The petrol engine provides most of the power in Parallel Hybrid mode and is ideal for driving at higher speeds.
The new Outlander PHEV comes with a range of safety features including Hill-start Assist, preventing the car from rolling backwards when starting the engine on an upward gradient. Anti-lock Braking System with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution ensures slippery road surfaces are met with the appropriate braking force to avoid skidding. Rain and dusk sensors automatically engage windscreen wipers and headlights in reaction to fluctuating weather and lighting conditions.
