Three driving modes
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV will be able to be operated in any of the three mode. Depending on driving conditions and battery level, the Outlander's Plug-in Hybrid EV powertrain automatically selects the optimum drive mode so you can enjoy worry free, fuel-efficient motoring:
- First mode will be as an all-electric vehicle, with the front and rear electric motors driving the Outlander using battery power only.
- The second mode will be as a series hybrid, with the petrol engine working as a generator to supply electricity to the motors.
- The third mode will be as a parallel hybrid, where the petrol engine will provide most of the motive power and will be assisted by the electric motors as required.
With the ability to drive 54 km in EV mode, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has a total extended hybrid range of more than 600 km.
A small yet powerful 2.0L MiVEC petrol engine has been selected for its quiet Electric Vehicle cruising potential and its ability to supply the two the electric motors with electricity.
The ultimate parking aid
The Multi Around View Monitor on VRX uses four cameras to give you a complete picture of what’s around you. Choose a specific angle or a bird’s eye view for the easiest park you’ve ever experienced.
Forward Collision Mitigation
Radar is used to identify obstructions ahead and warn of a potential collision. If the risk remains, this system applies the brakes to mitigate a collision.
Adaptive Cruise Control
Now, when the vehicle in front alters its speed, so does your cruise control. A radar mounted in the grille matches Outlander’s cruise control speed to whatever you’re following with appropriate adjustments of brake or accelerator.
Daytime running lights
For added safety and improved visibility, Outlander features daytime running lights. The headlights are now LED, which use less energy and increase the vehicle’s overall efficiency.
Keeping you out of harm's way
An innovation to help keep you out of harm’s way is the new mis-acceleration prevention system. While manoeuvring forwards or backwards, should the driver accidentally stamp on the gas pedal instead of the brake a device senses if there’s something in the way and instantly disables the throttle.
Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System
An alarm function alerts pedestrians near the vehicle when driving with the engine off (because the vehicle runs so quietly). The alarm has a different pitch depending on vehicle speed.
Unlike many hybrid vehicles the Outlander Plug-In Hybrid is tow rated to 1000kg braked and unbraked.
8 Year Battery Warranty
The peace of mind you want from a Plug-in Hybrid EV is amply catered for by the 8 year/160,000km battery warranty. Combined with the 5 year/ 100,000km mechanical warranty, it adds up to a very reassuring drive.
