Combining twin electric motors with an efficient 2.4-litre Atkinson Cycle engine, the Outlander PHEV achieves impressive efficiency and outstanding performance. Not only can it cover 33 miles in electric mode alone, it boasts CO2 emissions of as low as 40g/km. Thanks to strong, swift acceleration, advanced braking technology and precise handling, it also delivers a muscular and accurate drive, ensuring you enjoy every moment behind the wheel.
Choosing the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV also rewards you with a host of safety features for the utmost protection. Hill Start Assist prevents backward roll when pulling away on an upward gradient, while Blind Sport Warning keeps an eye out where you can’t. Opt for the advanced safety package on 4h and 5h models to add such innovative measures as Unintended Acceleration Mitigation System and Auto High Beam headlamps.
There are numerous ways to get the most out of your battery in the Outlander PHEV. Touch a button to initiate Regenerative Braking, which charges the battery while you’re in normal driving mode. Or press the CHRG button to use the petrol engine to top up your battery power. Finally, you can plug in to a standard charging point and achieve a full charge in less than four hours.
The Outlander PHEV comes with a range of safety features including;
Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM) which is a radar-based system automatically applies the brakes when there is a sudden reduction in the distance with the vehicle in front and helps avoid a collision or reduce impact damage in the event of a collision.
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), This system uses radar to keep a safe distance between you and the vehicle in front. If the vehicle in front is too close, slowing down or stopping, the ACC will automatically slow or stop your own vehicle. It offers greater safety and peace of mind especially during traffic jams on highways.
Lane Departure Warning (LDW) which means as the car deviates and approaches or reaches the lane marking, the driver gets a warning: a visual alert plus either an audible tone, a vibration in the steering wheel, or a vibration in the seat .
Automatic High Beam (ACC), To make driving at night easier, the high beam automatically switches to low beam whenever vehicles ahead are detected. Once the oncoming vehicle has passed, it switches back. You'll never need to take your hands off the steering wheel to switch them manually again.
Ultrasonic Misacceleration Mitigation System (UMS) To help prevent collisions while parking, a buzzer sounds and a warning displays if the front or rear sensors detect a nearby obstacle. Acceleration is also controlled if you suddenly put your foot down by accident.
Blind Spot Warning (BSW) This feature uses radar sensors to detect whether there are vehicles in your blind spots. If you're about to change lanes and the system detects that something is there, a light will blink in the door mirror on the side and a buzzer will sound and finally front and rear parking sensors .
