Mitsubishi produced the worlds first petrol plug in hybrid SUV
Capable of up to 33 miles in EV mode, the average commute can be driven solely on electricity with zero emissions, reducing the cost to you and the environment. In combined mode the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV emissions are only 41g/km CO2. This has considerable benefits if you drive into London – free access in the Congestion Charge Zone.
Using twin electric motors and a 2.0 litre petrol engine, the PHEV knows which to choose to match your driving and optimise performance. It has a combined max range of 542 miles.
The new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV models qualify for the Government’s Plug-in Car Grant incentive scheme. Prices quoted include the £2,500 subsidy discount.

All levels include cruise control, electronic parking brakes, lane departure warning, parking sensors and UMS (Unintended Acceleration Mitigation System) and Remote Smart Phone link Technology.
The Outlander PHEV switches between three driving modes as conditions and your driving style change;
- EV Power Mode – diving on pure electric power with near silent driving and no exhaust emissions
- Series Hybrid Mode – engine charging mode, petrol charges battery, battery powers the car
- Parallel hybrid Mode – petrol engine takes over for high speeds and steep hills.
