The all-new 2022 Outlander has been causing quite a stir in the car world.. and with its quiet, dynamic performance, upgraded tech and styling, it’s easy to see why. Did you know that the Outlander now comes in a PHEV alternative? As part of the new generation of SUV's hitting the market in Australia, Mitsubishi's assures us:
"You don’t need to change your life to drive an Outlander PHEV, but it will change your life."
With exceptional economy and low emissions for a clean driving experience, AWD stability and handling, advanced safety technology and the environmental benefits of a technically advanced electric drivetrain, this vehicle is sure to impress.
How does it work?
The Outlander PHEV is run by twin electric motors that run alongside a MIVEC petrol engine to deliver a smooth and silent ride. It has long-range capability because of the vehicle's intelligent system that switches from electric to petrol seamlessly, as needed. The lithium battery uses 9.8kWh of electricity and can travel up to 54 km on a single charge. Easily re-chargeable via an external plug-in in as little as 30 minutes. The extra petrol engine of the hybrid provides the additional piece of mind that you're covered for longer trips, especially in areas that lack the infrastructure to accommodate Electric Vehicles.
Outlander PHEV’s spacious interior offers generous head and legroom and the rear seats fold down when you need to carry a larger load. Mounting the lithium ion battery under the floor allows for a roomy cabin and lowers the centre of gravity for optimum handling. Under-floor storage in the rear cargo area houses the charging cable. Outlander PHEV also features a power tailgate that opens and closes with a touch of your Smart Key.
Regenerative BrakingOutlander PHEV harnesses the vehicle’s kinetic energy when the brakes are applied, recharging the battery with energy that would otherwise be wasted. Every time you lift your foot off the accelerator, the electric motors start to function as generators, feeding power back to the batteries. Regenerative braking can be adjusted to suit your driving style and traffic conditions, with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters selecting between 6 levelsO4 of braking strength.
Charge and SaveYou 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. Or select EV Priority mode for fully electric driving, with the petrol engine only kicking in when battery levels get low or when maximum power is called for.
Electric Park Brake & Brake Auto HoldApply and release the park brake with a simple switch on the centre console. The Brake Auto Hold function holds Outlander PHEV in place when stationary, so there’s no need to keep your foot on the brake when stopped in traffic.
On Demand AWDMaximise traction on slippery surfaces with the 4WD Lock button. This works in a similar way to locking the centre differential on a conventional AWD vehicle, sending torque equally to all four wheels for enhanced traction and stability.
EV Remote Outlander PHEV Exceed gives you control and oversight of your vehicle through your smartphone. The remote control app connects via Bluetooth® and allows you to monitor the remaining charge time, control the charging timer settings, check the alarm, turn the headlights on and off, and even turn on the heater or air conditioning or set it for later, all with your fingertips.
