Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Features

The Outlander PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) is a ground breaking vehicle that brings together the superior environmental performance and quietness of an electric vehicle (EV), the stability and handling of an AWD and the everyday practicalities and safety of an SUV. Sophisticated yet practical, the Outlander PHEV is the ultimate in intelligent motion and represent the next generation of hybrid and electric vehicles.

Plug-In Hybrid Electric Technology

The Outlander PHEV switches seamlessly between three drive modes to get the most efficient performance from its twin electric motors and highly efficient petrol engine. This innovative technology offers incredible efficiency and a smooth, quiet ride without compromising comfort, size, performance or convenience. 

The Plug-In EV Hybrid System

Two Powerful Electric Motors

Twin electric motors and a highly efficient petrol engine optimise performance according to your driving. Separately mounted motors at the front and rear axles deliver incredible responsive AWD performance with S-AWC (Super All Wheel Control) ensuring excellent driving stability and intuitive, linear handling. Smooth, quiet, comfort with abundant power to tackle off-road terrain with highly efficient purpose. 

The Plug-In EV Hybrid System

Charging the Outlander PHEV

With a complete charge taking just 9.8KWh* of electricity and an EV range of up to 53 kilometres, the Outlander PHEV can run on its EV battery for a fraction of the cost of conventional petrol or diesel.

* Outlander Full Charge: The amount of energy required to charge will vary and is affected by a number of factors, including ambient temperature and the traction battery’s current state of charge.

Complete Control

Charge & Save

You can choose how and when the battery is used with the touch of a button. When the engine is engaged, the Battery Charge mode continuously charges the battery. In Battery Save mode the engine will maintain the charge you have, allowing you to save the battery charge for later.

Complete Control

Regenerative Braking

Kinetic energy which is generated whilst braking is also used to recharge the drive battery. As soon as the accelerator pedal is released the motors function as power generators. Six** levels of regenerative braking can be selected via paddles mounted within fingertip reach of the steering wheel.

Complete Control 2

Electric Park Brake & Brake Auto Hold

A pull up to apply/push down to release switch replaces the traditional handbrake lever. The Brake Auto Hold function makes stop/start driving in heavy traffic easier, by avoiding the need to keep your foot on the brake pedal while stationary.

Complete Control 2

Remotely Innovative

A free app for your Smartphone (Android or Apple)# lets you remotely control your Outlander PHEV Exceed from the comfort of your home. You can monitor the remaining charge time, control the charging timer settings, check the alarm, turn on/off the parking and headlights, and even turn on the heater or air conditioning or set if for later, all from the comfort of your living room.
