Bold, powerful and ready for action. The award-winning Outlander PHEV blazes a path into the future for SUVs. Featuring Mitsubishi's innovative smart PHEV technology, the combination of a 20kwH Lithium-ion battery and a 2.4L DOHC MIVEC Petrol engine with Mitsubishi’s Super-All Wheel Control (S-AWC) provides unparalleled performance and an incredible fully electric driving range of up to 84km - all while boasting an all-new, unapologetically aggressive visual style and spacious, luxurious interior.
Uncompromising, the Outlander PHEV is the best of both worlds.
Yes, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is worth buying for a range of different reasons. As a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, the SUV relies predominantly on its high-capacity lithium-ion battery and electric motors to power the vehicle allowing you to travel for up to 84km without the need for petrol.
For further distances and when you require more power, the Outlander PHEV can use its 2.4L combustion engine to assist the electric motors, greatly extending the Outlander's driving range to over 800km. This results in an SUV that is powerful, spacious, extremely fuel efficient (1.6 L /100 km), low emission and at a competitive price in the market.
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV features an all-new visual design style to compliment its high-performance smart PHEV technology.

Envision a future in which your household budget isn't at the mercy of the ever-increasing cost of fuel. The freedom and convenience of never having to carve out time to refuel at a station.
The Outlander PHEV delivers on this promise. Not only does the SUV take advantage of Mitsubishi's advanced smart PHEV technology, but it also unlocks its full potential with its high-capacity lithium-ion battery.
What is the range of a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV?
At 20 kWH, one of the biggest batteries in its class, the Outlander can travel up to 84km on battery power alone - far exceeding the average Kiwi's daily commute.
And when the time comes to go on an adventure, the Outlander has you covered. Switching out of EV Drive mode into parallel hybrid or series hybrid mode uses the 2.4L engine to support the electric motors, producing a combined range of over 800km - all while providing a fuel economy of 1.6L/ 100km. Wherever you need to go, the Outlander has the range to get you there.
An answer for every situation, The Outlander PHEV features 3 drive modes that can seamlessly be switched between for optimal performance and efficiency.
The Mitsubishi Outlander has already cemented its status as New Zealand's favourite SUV. The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has taken what makes the traditional Outlander so special and combined it with one of the most sophisticated PHEV and AWD systems on the market. Powered by a 2.4-litre 4-cylinder petrol engine and two updated high-efficiency electric motors, the 2.4L DOHC MIVEC Petrol engine has a max power of 98 kW @ 5,500 RPM and max torque of 195 Nm @ 4,300 RPM, while the two permanent magnet synchronous electric motors provide a combined max power of 85kW / 100kW and max torque of 255Nm / 195Nm.
The Outlander PHEV also utilises Mitsubishi's Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) for incredible handling and stability on the road. The S-AWC system combines advanced torque vectoring technology with vehicle stability control, providing you with the confidence and control you need to take on any road
The Mitsubishi Outlander wins 2022 AA Driven Car of the Year: Best Clean Car PHEV.
When you release a vehicle that revolutionises its class, the world is sure to notice. The Outlander PHEV has been recognised for its advanced electric vehicle technology, superior performance and fuel-efficient capabilities, being awarded the AA Driven Car of the Year: Best Clean Car PHEV in 2022, recognising it as one of the best vehicles on the road today.
"The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has been one of the most important plug-in vehicles in New Zealand for a decade; it’s arguably the model that was first to bring electric vehicle technology into the Kiwi mainstream, proving that zero-emissions urban driving didn’t have to come at the expense of SUV practicality and even off-tarmac ability, thanks to a clever dual-motor AWD system.
Ten years on and the Outlander is no longer alone in the market. But the new model has raised the bar significantly in terms of size, quality, technology and - especially in the context of this award."
Drive Life's Outlander PHEV review concluded perfectly, noting "The new Outlander PHEV continues to be an excellent family car, with the ability to be emissions-free for your local journeys, but with a more efficient petrol/electric system for longer trips. It’s the best of both worlds..." (Information released by AA New Zealand and NZME DRIVEN)
Electric vehicle technology has improved exponentially over the last decade. In the past, choosing a fully electric or hybrid vehicle over their traditional combustion counterparts meant compromising on some factors - whether that be cost, range, performance or design. Every year that has ticked by there have been fewer and fewer compromises. With the release of Mitsubishi's Outlander hybrid, it's safe to say that the gap between combustion and electric technology vehicles hasn't only closed, but Mitsubishi's flagship PHEV has taken the lead.
Mitsubishi's smart PHEV technology is utilised in two of their critically acclaimed vehicles - The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV and the Eclipse Cross PHEV. While both are SUVs that share similar technology, the difference in size, range, price and performance provide a different flavour of PHEV to suit your taste.
As New Zealand strives towards a low-emissions, electric vehicle future, the government has implemented an incentive known as the Clean Car Discount. This is a rebate that applies to the purchase of vehicles with low to zero emissions. Mitsubishi’s range of PHEVs has been at the forefront of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles since 2013, and the Outlander PHEV is no exception.
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is eligible for a rebate through the Clean Car Discount scheme of $4,025. With no compromise on performance or features, it’s just one more reason to make your Mitsubishi Outlander a PHEV. However, be quick, because this Scheme ends on December 31, 2023.
We offer Mitsubishi’s unbeatable Diamond Advantage 5/10-year warranty which is New Zealand’s best new car warranty, backed up by award-winning customer care. The Diamond Advantage consists of:
Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV also comes with an 8-year / 160,000km warranty specific to the drive Li-ion battery.
