The Outlander PHEV is no stranger to innovation: it is the world’s first plug-in hybrid crossover. It’s also the best-selling PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) in Europe, and this past December it made its debut in the United States. Leaning on its strong history of impeccably-engineered vehicles, Mitsubishi created the Outlander PHEV with the perfect balance of capability and efficiency.
The Outlander PHEV’s technological intelligence runs deep. It comes equipped with a 2.0-liter gas engine, two electric motors, and Mitsubishi’s exclusive Super All-Wheel Control system. This perfect blend of advanced technologies works together to deliver superior SUV capabilities as well as environmentally-friendly fuel economy. Its DC Fast Charging capability allows for convenient, quick charging while on the go, and its All-Wheel Control system will provide a smooth, confident ride on any terrain.
The innovative combination of a gas engine and a front and rear electric motor allows for three smart, versatile drivetrain modes. The first is the EV Drive Mode, which offers eco-friendly driving by being exclusively battery-powered. You can choose this driving mode by a simple push of a button. Alternatively, if the battery is low or a lot of acceleration is required, the electric motors will draw on both the battery and gas generator — this is called the Series Hybrid Mode. The last mode is Parallel Hybrid Mode, which maximizes the crossover’s power by drawing upon both the gas and electric systems. This mode is the most efficient when driving for long periods of time or at high-speeds, such as when driving on the highway.
