Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV towing

Taking towing to the next level

The Mitsubishi Outlander is the world's first Plug-in Hybrid EV SUV. Motors on both front and rear axles and an efficiently powerful petrol engine work in harmony to optimise towing performance.

A 1500kg braked towing limit

Towing strength when you need it

The Outlander PHEV has a 1500kg braked towing limit and a 750 unbraked limit. That’s the weight of a medium caravan, for example, a 17 foot Swift that weighs 1468 kg.

Solid towing

Pulling strength of the petrol engine

Ther Outlander PHEV has a 2.0-litre petrol engine which develops 119bhp and 140lb ft of torque. Or to put it in a slightly less technical way, it has a lot of towing power.

Quieter towing

Pulling strength of the electric motors

The PHEV is more than capable of towing on electricity alone. The Mitsubishi accelerates from 30-60mph, in under 12 seconds.

The Outlander PHEV 4WD system

Safer towing through an advanced 4WD system

The Outlander PHEV has an advanced 4WD system on board called S-AWC (Super All Wheel Control). Having all four wheels being driven whilst towing provides superior stability and safety, especially if road conditions deteriorate during the journey.

Regenerative Braking

Creating towing power even when you’re braking

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.

Paddle selectors

Control the amount of energy you regenerate

A paddle selector on the steering wheel allows you to control the amount of energy you regenerate. Choose from 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.

Multi Around Monitor

Cameras to help you locate the towball

Tiny cameras all around the Outlander PHEV allow you keep an eye on the front, rear and sides of your vehicle. Using the collected data, the Multi Around Monitor can also create a bird's-eye visual of the vehicle to help you orientate yourself and park more safely.

Trailer Stability Assist (TSA)

An onboard system for increased towing safety

TSA increases stability when towing. If vehicle swaying is detected, it automatically controls engine power and the braking force at each wheel to stabilise the vehicle and trailer.
