Outlander PHEV Plug-in Hybrid EV technology
What is a Plug-in Hybrid?
Our plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, the Outlander PHEV, is a revolution in electric technology. It has an advanced engine and powerful electric motors. The intelligent on-board technology means it can switch seamlessly between the two. It offers the best of both worlds: petrol power when you need it and greener, cheaper electric power for all other times. Charging the battery is easy, through an ordinary household plug or charging station.

Wondering if the Outlander PHEV is right for you?
See how the twin electric motors and petrol engine work together whatever your journey type.
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.

How charging works
Low CO2 Emissions
An SUV with ultra-low CO2
Because the Outlander PHEV harnesses electric power more often, it’s much greener with ultra-low CO2 emissions of just 46g/km (WLTP).
With a range of up to 28 miles with zero exhaust emissions, you can potentially do all your commuting miles purely on electricity and just use the petrol engine when you're taking a longer journey.
