SUV Capability

Ready for anything

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.
Outlander PHEV twin motors
Twin Electric Motors

Responsive 4WD performance

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.
Greater control all round

S-AWC (Super All Wheel Control)

Outstanding stability

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.

More about S-AWC technology

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).
