2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Eco-Friendly Technology | St. Cloud, MN
The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has been one of the most anticipated plug-in hybrid electric models for quite some time now. The eco-friendly family crossover boasts plenty of comfort features and a thrilling performance that pairs well with its impressive efficiency. With so much eco-friendly technology under the hood, it’s no wonder the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is shaking up the segment.
The fuel-efficient Outlander PHEV boasts a gasoline engine paired with two electric motors and a single-gear transmission. That powertrain delivers an exciting 197 horsepower and 281 lb-ft of torque. Better yet, it earns up to an EPA-estimated 74 combined mpge*.
Capability isn’t usually associated with plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, but it’s a standard feature in the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. This model boasts the automaker’s Super All-Wheel Control, and it can tow up to 1,500 lbs. when properly equipped.
Three available drive modes enable drivers to optimize how the Outlander PHEV performs. EV Mode allows the dual electric motors to draw power from the lithium-ion battery pack. Series Hybrid Mode runs both the electric motors and engine in order to keep the Outlander PHEV moving while simultaneously charging the battery. Parallel Hybrid Mode activates the electric motors when the vehicle requires more power.
No matter the drive mode, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV will benefit from Regenerative Braking. When the brake pedal is depressed, the regenerative braking system uses kinetic energy to charge the battery. The electric motors can then draw on that stored energy to run on electricity in EV mode or power up hills in Parallel Hybrid Mode.
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is the first plug-in hybrid electric vehicle to offer DC Fast Charging. With DC Fast Charging, the Outlander PHEV can reach an 80-percent charge in under half an hour. Combined with Regenerative Braking, DC Fast Charging enables the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV to stay on the road longer than its competitors.
