Electric technology. It’s in our DNA

Electric past, present and future

We believe a more vibrant society can be created through mobility. In other words, the more efficient ways we have of getting around, the better we’ll all be. That’s why we started our development into electric vehicle (EV) technology way back in 1970.

We are pioneers in vehicle electrification

In 2009, we launched the i-MiEV, the first ever mass-produced electric vehicle. More recently, we’ve been developing plug-in hybrid technology. A hybrid electric vehicle uses both a petrol engine and an internal battery as its main sources of power. But a Plug-in Hybrid EV (PHEV) has a battery which can be recharged from the mains. Our research and development in this area resulted in the 2013 launch of the Outlander PHEV. In 2017 we introduced the e-Evolution concept car, which shows we’re already thinking about the future.


Mitsubishi Motors' innovation

Our PHEV system is based on EV technology and is an advanced series hybrid. It has twin motors: one on the front axle, and one on the rear. Having twin electric motors creates a superior EV system with 4WD capability.


A vehicle that thinks for itself

Our PHEV System switches smoothly between driving modes to offer the most efficient performance.


Cleaner. Quieter. Smoother

Having twin electric motors doesn’t just mean the car can be driven at speeds of up to 135km in pure electric (EV) mode. With no gears to change, there's no 'shift shock,' so you get a much smoother ride.

Better for the environment

Because our PHEV system harnesses electric power more often, and the 2.4-litre atkinson cycle engine is highly efficient, our PHEV vehicles have ultra-low CO2 emissions: 40g/km(NEDC) and 46g/km(WLTP).

S-AWC (Super All Wheel Control)

This integrated control system is only available from Mitsubishi Motors. It delivers incredible power and control by managing several on-board systems all at once: AYC (Active Yaw Control), ASC (Active Stability Control) with Traction Control and ABS (Anti-lock Braking System). This means the Twin Motor 4WD system is working at its best, without compromising safety, comfort or fuel efficiency.

A new Drive Mode makes S-AWC even better because it lets you choose the best setting for your road conditions:

Less noise. More green

Having separately mounted motors on the front and rear axles not only delivers a smoother ride, it's also incredibly quiet. You could be gliding through the city streets or country roads in the early hours and no one will notice. And in all-electric driving mode, you'll benefit from zero fuel consumption and zero CO2 emissions.


Go for miles without needing to refuel

Our PHEV drive system stores the electricity in a large capacity lithium-ion battery (13.8kw) which gives you a range of 33 miles. Combine that with the 2.4-litre atkinson cycle engine and you’ve got a total range of over 375miles (600km).



There are several ways to charge, including over 6,000 charging locations across the UK. It takes as little as 25 minutes to charge your PHEV vehicle up to 80% at a Rapid Charger.

Ways to Charge

Charging is easy

The Outlander PHEV can be charged in several different ways. All of them are easy and convenient. Just choose the one that suits you best.


Dedicated Home Charger

A dedicated home charger is one that is installed outside your home by a trained electrician. We recommend the Pod Point and Chargemaster brands.


Regular Charger

The drive battery can be charged via a standard UK wall socket which we recommend uses a dedicated electrical circuit, checked by a qualified electrician. 7 hours for 230V 8A.


Quick Charger

A rapid charger can provide up to 80% charge in as little as 25 minutes, making them the quickest way to charge in the UK. Commonly found at motorway service stations and close to major roads.


Fast Charger

You'll find Fast Chargers in supermarket car parks and shopping centres and anywhere else a car can be left for an extended period – sometimes even workplaces.

Zap Map EV Charging Station Finder App

Recharge your batteries while the car recharges

The Zap Map EV Charging Station Finder App will help you find your nearest charging location. If you hook up to a rapid charger, you can stop for coffee or a bite to eat and 25 minutes later, you'll have up to 80% charge.

The easy way to find charging stations

Find more than 40,000 charging points across Europe with the latest available information. The EV Charging Station Finder App works on your iPhone*. It works on AndroidTM smartphone as well, and also through Android AutoTM on the on-board MMC Smartphone Link Display Audio (SDA). You can either search for chargers based on your current location or by choosing a location. The app will also tell you whether the charging point is available or occupied.

Tax benefits

Ultra low emission vehicles

Plug-in hybrids and electric cars with CO2 emissions of less than 75 g/km benefit from lower VED costs and savings on fuel duty since miles driven on electric do not count toward fuel allowances. Find out more at Gov.uk

Congestion Charge

Say goodbye to Congestion Charge

The Outlander PHEV is exempt from the Congestion Charge. To take advantage of this, you first need to register your vehicle, which is subject to administrative fee.

Company Cars

Save thousands in Company Car Tax

The Outlander PHEV is in the lowest company car Benefit In Kind (BIK) tax band. Over the years, you could save thousands. Find out more by using our Company Car Tax Calculator.

See what the future holds

We've been pioneers for over 100 years, it's part of our DNA. So too is the need to innovate. This means we'll continue to develop greener, more sustainable vehicles which offer greater protection and make driving fun and pleasurable. Just like our e-Evolution concept car.
