Plug-in Hybrid technology

The Outlander PHEV is a Plug-in hybrid EV. It has a highly-efficient 2.4-litre petrol engine, large capacity Battery(13.8kWh) and twin electric traction motors. This is not just a revolution. It’s EV-olution.


What’s the difference between Hybrid, EV, and PHEV?

A hybrid vehicle uses both a petrol engine and electric motors, with the battery charging only when the vehicle is in motion. In contrast, an electric vehicle –or EV– is powered by battery only, which gets charged from an external power supply.


A Plug-in Hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) has a petrol engine and a battery which can be recharged from an external power supply. So it’s not only convenient to charge, it’s more versatile because you’ve got two forms of power working in harmony.

Tomorrow’s technology today

With the Outlander PHEV, the petrol engine is for conventional power when needed. The twin electric motors offer quieter, more economical driving. Because the Outlander PHEV is so advanced, it switches seamlessly between them both to offer the most efficient performance.

Outlander PHEV braking technology
Regenerative Braking

Charge the battery as you drive

Kinetic energy is generated naturally as the vehicle brakes. To help you keep your battery charge topped up, the Outlander PHEV makes use of this energy. In other words, the electric motor is using the vehicle's momentum to recover energy that would be otherwise lost to the brake discs as heat. A paddle selector on the steering wheel allows you to control the amount of energy you regenerate. Choose from of six levels depending on driving conditions. The other benefit of this innovative technology is it's more eco-friendly: you'll be relying on the petrol engine less often.

Electric Priority

Total control at your fingertips

You can select the Outlander PHEV to run on electricity alone by using the EV Priority switch. During these times, as well as being cheaper per mile, the car will run almost silently. Just imagine, you could be gliding through the city streets or country roads in the early hours and no one will be disturbed.

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 40g/km(NEDC) and 46g/km(WLTP).
