In November, we took three heroes from Mitsubishi’s diverse range of rugged and capable SUVs to the heart of the Lake District, following two extreme triathletes on a gruelling training session from Ullswater lake to Kirkstone peak. Let’s take a closer look at one of the stars of that epic adventure – the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.
With a plug-in hybrid powertrain that delivers up to 28 miles of all-electric range*, allied to a four-wheel-drive system that lets you head off-road, and a stylish, comfortable and spacious interior that's brimming with technology, the Outlander PHEV is the original hybrid SUV – perfect for conquering the city, as well as tackling long road trips and the great outdoors with family and friends.

Hybrid performance where it counts
The heart of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV’s hybrid performance is a pair of powerful front- and rear-wheel electric motors allied to a 13.8kWh lithium-ion battery. They offer up to 28 miles of all-electric, zero-emissions range – more than enough for most everyday trips and urban commuting*.
On longer journeys, the intelligent hybrid powertrain blends the best of electric and petrol power, seamlessly activating the 2.4-litre petrol engine to give you all the range you need, and combining the electric motors with the petrol engine when appropriate to deliver more torque and improved fuel economy.
As a result, it can deliver up to 139.7mpg (WLTP combined) and CO2 emissions as low as 40g/km*.
The Outlander PHEV’s electric powertrain is also capable of recharging itself on the move, thanks to regenerative braking, and uses Battery Charge and Battery Save modes to preserve electric range for lower-speed urban driving.
Easy to charge; cost-effective to run
When you reach your destination, you can recharge the Outlander PHEV’s battery using a dedicated charger or your home supply, making the most of low-cost overnight electrical rates.
If you need an extra dose of charge while you’re out-and-about, a public rapid charger will let you regain up to 80% of your battery capacity and range in as little as 25 minutes.
A remote smartphone app** lets you monitor and control battery charging status and times remotely from the comfort of your home or office, as well as letting you pre-heat or pre-cool the cabin while it’s still charging – perfect for saving time, without losing any electric range.
As the Outlander PHEV is a true low-emissions plug-in hybrid – with zero emissions when running solely on electric power – it's congestion charge exempt, while company car drivers and businesses can make the most of BIK and tax benefits that further reduce annual running costs.
Four-wheel, more of the time
With electric motors on the front and rear axles, the Outlander PHEV delivers both electric and petrol four-wheel-drive, giving you more grip and confidence on the open road, while also letting you head onto loose-surface roads.
You also get to control how you use that all-wheel performance. An ECO mode delivers optimum efficiency, while SPORT mode sharpens the response from the electric motors. 4WD LOCK distributes torque equally to all four wheels for improved traction on loose and slippery surfaces, and there’s even a dedicated SNOW mode for winter driving.
