Driving the Outlander PHEV

Experience a new level of driving pleasure with the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. Twin electric motors and an advanced petrol engine work together to optimise performance. Find out what it’s like behind the wheel of this responsive, technologically advanced SUV.

SUV Capability

Ready for adventure

The Outlander PHEV has all the benefits you'd expect from an SUV: a high driving position and high ground clearance, so it copes equally well with bumpy roads or uneven terrain. It offers powerful acceleration and responsive roadholding, and with a roomy cabin and generous luggage space, this SUV is more capable than ever before.

Twin Electric Motors

Greater electric power

The Outlander PHEV has twin technologically advanced electric drive motors mounted on the front and rear axle. Together, they create more focussed drive power and allow the vehicle to travel at speeds of up to 135km/ (83 mph) in pure EV mode. It also means the car has a smoother drive, there's no 'shift shock' when changing gear and it's virtually silent.

S-AWC (Super All Wheel Control)

Outstanding stability on any terrain

The Outlander PHEV is the only vehicle available with a Twin Motor 4WD system working in tandem with Mitsubishi’s unique integrated vehicle dynamics control system, S-AWC (Super All Wheel Control). The front and rear motors optimally control the driving and braking force of each wheel, which conventional 4WD vehicles would never be able to do. As a result, the Outlander PHEV offers you greater stability and control in all conditions.

How S-AWC (Super All Wheel Control) technology works

Our unique integrated vehicle dynamics control system: S-AWC, delivers predictable handling and better performance through a combination of Active Yaw Control (ABS), Active Stability Control (ASC), and Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS).

Drive Mode Switch

Greater traction when you need it

Enhance the Outlander PHEV's off-road traction and stability even further with the new Drive Mode Switch on the centre console. Just press it until the mode you want appears in the Multi-Information Display on the dash. Choose between Sport, ECO, Normal, Snow or Lock settings.

Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS)

Intelligent technology for safer driving

Advanced safety technology supports safer, more confident driving - on the road and in car parks, day and night. From intelligent sensors that track your surroundings and warn you of danger, to active driving assistance and solid passive protection, the Outlander PHEV delivers all around high levels of safety.

Heated Windscreen

A clear view in no time at all

Heated wires throughout the windscreen clear the glass of fog or frost. Your windscreen will be clear in a lot less time than if you were using the heater/defroster.

Electronic Parking Brake (EPB) / Brake Auto Hold (BAH)

No more wrestling the parking brake

The Electronic Parking Brake (EPB) switch replaces the traditional lever. Pull up to apply and push down to release. Brake Auto Hold (BAH) makes applying the parking brake in stop/start driving really easy.


More performance, more fun

A Unique combination of twin motors and a powerful engine delivers both power and performance. Add in S-AWC (Super All Wheel Control) for improved traction and stability, and you'll experience driving pleasure at a whole new level with the Outlander PHEV.

360 degree parking camera

Park your Outlander PHEV with ease

The Outlander PHEV's four cameras generate a 360 degree view of the space around the car allowing you to see obstacles in every direction. In other words, parking is a breeze.
