Outlander PHEV Plug-in Hybrid EV technology
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.
Innovation with a performance edge
Dramatic refinement has come to the innovative Plug-in Hybrid EV system, which now features a higher-output rear motor, a more fuel-efficient engine and more sophisticated power management based on unrivalled experience for supreme silence, smoothness and torque.
Twin motor 4WD and S-AWC
Separately mounted motors at the front and rear axles deliver incredibly responsive 4WD performance with S-AWC ensuring excellent driving stability and intuitive, linear handling.
New 2.4-litre engine
The supremely efficient Atkinson-cycle engine with long expansion stroke provides high fuel economy and low CO2 emissions.
The high-performance generator transforms engine power into electricity to recharge the drive battery and assist the motors when needed.
Front Motor PDU & Rear EMCU
These intelligent control units contribute to heightened energy efficiency and optimal motor control with instant maximum torque that outperforms a 3.0-litre petrol engine.
The large-capacity 13.8kWh battery is stored under the floor to maximise interior space and lower the centre of gravity for improved safety and handling. Stored electricity can also be used to power external appliances.
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.
Towns and Short Commutes
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.
Best for Countryside
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.
Best for Motorways
Charge the battery as you drive
Drive mode 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.
Recharge your drive
Ways to charge the battery
A Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) has both a conventional engine and a motor. This is powered by a battery, which can be recharged from an external power supply. Charging is convenient and easy: you can either plug it into a household plug; a special home charging unit or one of the many public charging stations.Learn more about charging
Low CO2 Emissions
Lower costs for you and the environment
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.

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.

Understanding Hybrid Cars
How does the Outlander PHEV work?
The Outlander PHEV is a technologically advanced series parallel hybrid vehicle. It uses either an electric motor or an internal combustion engine (ICE) to power the wheels.
Does the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV have a gearbox?
There is no CVT (continuous variable transmission), just reduction gear boxes and a clutch to couple the ICE (internal combustion engine) to the front wheels.
