Driving the Outlander PHEV
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)
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).
Active Yaw Control (AYC) improves cornering by optimally distributing driving and braking forces to the left and right wheels.
Stability in all conditions
Active Stability Control (ASC) helps a driver maintain control. When the system detects that a proper grip can’t be maintained by each wheel on a slippery road, or due to sudden movement of the steering wheel, braking force is applied at one or more of the wheels and motor output is automatically adjusted to maintain control.
No locked brakes
Anti-lock brake system (ABS) prevents the wheels from locking up under heavy braking or while braking on slippery road surfaces. This means the driver can maintain control and steer around potential obstructions and/or avoid collisions.
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.

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.

Understanding Hybrid Cars
Does a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV charge while driving?
For increased charging efficiency the Outlander PHEV has regenerative braking. When driving along or braking, the system converts the kinetic energy into electricity which is used to charge the battery.
Is the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV a 4WD?
The Outlander PHEV is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (117 horsepower) and 60-kilowatt electric motors on each axle. The combination gives the Outlander PHEV all-wheel drive.
