The Outlander PHEV is a technologically advanced series parallel hybrid which is a vehicle that can use either an electric motor or an internal combustion engine (ICE) to power the wheels. The ICE can also provide additional power to the electric motor when additional acceleration is required, for example, when tackling steep hills. The electric motor can be charged by plugging the vehicle into mains electricity and on a full charge the Outlander PHEV can travel up to 28 miles* in pure Electric Vehicle (EV) mode. Once the battery power has been used the ICE takes over, so there is no need for the driver to be concerned about how much charge is left in the battery.
