The SUV class-leading Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV stands head and shoulders above its competitors

Electric, self-charging and much more, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, the revolutionary plug-in hybrid SUV with the Mitsubishi Motors zero-emissions guarantee, offers the best in electric and hybrid technologies as well as added advantages compared to both technologies.

As regards hybrid technology, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV offers the possibility of driving 54 km in pure electric mode, with zero emissions, while offering a smooth, silent, safe (permanent electric 4WD) driving experience at a lower cost per day – at the same price as a hybrid in the same segment.

In comparison to a PEV, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV offers greater autonomy, thereby eliminating “range anxiety”. The 13.8 kWh large capacity battery of the Outlander PHEV has a range of up to 54 km in 100% electric mode. By adding the efficient 2.4-litre, Atkinson cycle petrol engine, a combined range of over 600 km can be achieved, bringing together all the benefits of e-mobility while removing the worry of finding yourself without power. It also offers much more space and versatility with an improved size-equipment-price ratio.

Charging the battery of the Outlander PHEV is as easy as charging a mobile phone as it plugs into a conventional socket in the garage, in a private car park at home or at work, or by using a charging point. With a quick charger, it only takes 25 minutes to achieve 80% of battery capacity. Its charging options give it additional advantages over non-plug-in conventional hybrids.

But moreover, its battery has a much greater storage capacity compared to any other hybrid. This allows running in electric mode for everyday journeys, such as the daily commute to work, which apart from being environmentally-friendly, significantly reduces fuel expenditure (taking into account that the costs of electricity is approximately one third that of fossil fuel).

Its twin electric drive motors, one on each axle, are more powerful than those of any conventional hybrid, resulting in silent gears, immediate response and a refined driving experience, making this vehicle stand head and shoulders above its competitors.

Its 54-km range in electric mode has qualified the Outlander PHEV for the Spanish Traffic Authority (DGT) zero-emissions badge (etiqueta azul). This badge offers far more advantages than the ECO badge, as there are no restrictions, enabling free parking in some cities such as within the entire reduced-emissions zone of Madrid. It also enjoys free access to the APR zones (priority residential areas restricted to traffic), the HOV (high occupancy vehicle) bus lane and toll-free roads in some Autonomous Communities.

When the power accumulated in the batteries is consumed or where there is plug-in option available, the Outlander PHEV works as any other hybrid… but it’s even better. As with any other hybrid, it is self-charging, in other words, able to charge up its batteries with its 2.4-litre Atkinson cycle petrol engine. It also self-charges by means of regenerative braking that converts the braking force into electrical power to charge the batteries.

Hybrid mode provides the Outlander with an increased autonomy, but with a far more satisfactory operation compared to conventional hybrids, thanks to its larger batteries and enhanced capacity of its twin electric motors: permanent 4WD electric traction plus safety, a smooth ride, response and less noise…; with a consumption in hybrid mode similar to that of any conventional hybrid with an equivalent capacity.

Unbeatable price and a fantastic guarantee

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV starts from €34,350 for the Motion model (including the brand discount and a financing discount), offering a very full specification which includes: hill start assistance, Smartphone Link Display Audio connectivity, 18″ alloy rims, Blind Sport Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, electric hand brake, key-free access and ignition, rear camera and photosensitive rear-view mirror.

In addition, it comes with a 5-year guarantee or 100,000 km and an 8-year guarantee or 160,000 km for the battery set, representing one of the most extensive and comprehensive guarantees in the market.

Free charging point

The Mitsubishi commitment to the new mobility has translated into an agreement with Endesa which, with no need to change utility, enables the installation of a charging point free of charge, whether for a private house, a residents’ association or at the office. The installation of the charging point includes: a Wallbox Pulsar 16/32A unit, a mobile app to control the charging, the physical installation and labour costs, up to 10 metres of cable and the Electrical Installation Certificate.
