For a vehicle that’s new to the U.S. market, the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV already has an impressive resume. It has achieved cult-status in Europe as the number-one best-selling plug-in hybrid. The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is the only crossover of its kind and it’s the most affordable hybrid member of the SUV/crossover class by far. It’s a feat of engineering that results from Mitsubishi’s 100-year experience innovating in the auto industry.
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV makes use of an advanced and sophisticated hybrid powertrain, which mounts two high-output electric motors at the front and rear axles, while a front-mounted generator converts the Outlander PHEV’s mechanical power to electric power. All of this is paired with an efficient 2.0-liter gasoline engine.
The 12kWh lithium ion battery is enhanced by features like Regenerative Braking and Driving Modes. Regenerative braking uses friction from the brakes to generate more electric power while driving modes allow drivers to toggle between fuel modes: an electric-only driving mode, a Battery Save Mode, and a Battery Charge Mode.
The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV also matches cutting-edge design and tech, such as spacious comfort in the interior and Mitsubishi’s All-Wheel Control system, with eco-friendly advancements like DC Quick Charging. The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV seamlessly combines SUV and crossover capability with green efficiency.
