Reviewing the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV
|   Sunday, February 16, 2014
The latest Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV reportedly achieved 148 MPG during the test run at NEDC's test cycle. However, nobody including Mitsubishi expects this vehicle to return such high fuel efficiency figures. This SUV is a mid ranged, large booted, five seated, plug in hybrid, expected to travel close to 32.5 Miles solely on electric backup. This figure is high considering the vehicle's overall weight. Mitsubishi claims that the battery can be recharged 80 percent within 30 minutes, which makes it quite economical to run.


The 2.2 liter diesel powered Outlander can travel around 100 Miles on full tank, which makes its hybrid alternative cheaper to run and maintain. Total driving range and fuel efficiency, however depend upon driving style and road conditions. Hence, if you plan on travelling off road or on soft road conditions, be prepared to shell out a lot more than you had originally expected.

It is however a very decent vehicle, while official figures confirm CO2 emissions close to 44 g/km. This saves a lot on tax, which ultimately turns out to be profitable on a long run. Beyond its plug in hybrid drive train, both vehicles are similar on all grounds. However, due to the installation of its battery pack, the boot space on this plug in hybrid is smaller by 14 liters.

Interior quality is high, with perfect fit and finish, which lends a whole new appeal to this vehicle. Even though you will find minor finish errors on certain corners in the interior, Mitsubishi has gone a long way to rectify original glitches. On full throttle, its electric motor displaces 80 BHP, along with 144 ft lb of torque. Mitsubishi is claiming top speeds of 106 MPH, while this vehicle is capable of accelerating from 0 – 60 MPH within 11.0 seconds.

Body control on a vehicle this large is better than expected, while their all wheel drive train provides standard safety by reducing body roll. Electronic Stability Control, ABS and Steering Control are fitted as standard on all new variant and this SUV feels reliable and secure than ever before.

Even if you like Mitsubishi's Outlander PHEV, you will not be able to but this vehicle before April 2014, as it officially goes on sale. This vehicle is currently without rivals in class, as no other 4 x 4 currently is priced below £35,000. Considering every possibility, we can affirm that Mitsubishi's latest Outlander is a one of a kind in range, providing numerous advantages over rivals in class. Insiders are currently tight lipped about this vehicle‘s price tag, even though experts have hinted at a figure close to £35,000.

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has a high seating position, which lends a commanding view of the road up front. This vehicle provides a serious proposition to people who want to drive an SUV, while feeling the comfort of a premium segment sedan that performs like a sports coupe. We will come up with a complete review very soon. Hence, stay tuned for latest news and updates regarding Mitsubishi and their plans for the future.
