Outlander PHEV Engine and Motors
New 2.4 Litre engine
What is an Atkinson Cycle engine?
This is a type of internal combustion engine invented by James Atkinson in 1882. It increases the efficiency of a four-stroke spark ignition by minimising the intake of fuel during the intake stroke or expansion stroke.
Generator and drive battery
Twin Electric motors
Better and more responsive
Separately mounted motors on the front and rear axles deliver incredibly responsive 4WD performance with S-AWC (Super All Wheel Control) ensuring excellent driving stability.
Front Power Drive Unit (PDU)
Power on the front axle
The first of the intelligent control units that contribute to the Outlander PHEV’s efficiency.
Rear Electric Motor Control Unit (EMCU)
Power on the rear axle
The second of the intelligent control units contribute to heightened efficiency and optimal motor control with instant maximum torque that can outperform a 3.0-litre petrol engine.

In town or short commutes
EV Drive Mode (Electric motor only)
The motors power the vehicle using electricity from the battery, resulting in zero fuel consumption and zero CO2 emissions. The drive mode is quiet, clean and powerful. Maximum speed is 83m/ph
Series Hybrid Mode (Electric motor + petrol engine assistance)
The motors power the vehicle using engine-generated electricity. The engine generates electricity to recharge the battery when the level is low and to increase power when accelerating rapidly or climbing hills.
Parallel Hybrid Mode (Petrol engine + electric motor assistance)
The engine powers the vehicle at high speeds etc, (when engine efficiency is high) with assistance from the motors when extra power is required.

These figures were obtained using a combination of battery power and fuel. The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is a plug-in hybrid vehicle requiring mains electricity for charging. Figures shown are for comparability purposes. Only compare fuel consumption, CO₂ and electric range figures with other cars tested to the same technical procedures. These figures may not reflect real life driving results, which will depend upon a number of factors including, accessories fitted (post-registration), variations in weather, driving styles and vehicle load.
