The Mitsubishi does better than any other plug-in hybrid CUV or SUV in the U.S. when it comes to all-electric range. Range numbers: there are around 20-23 miles of range, give or take based on the 12 kWh battery (and 33 mile NEDC rating). That means it’ll beat all of the other large PHEVs, which have a maximum EV range of 14 or 15 miles.
Eazy fast charge
There’s another unique benefit hiding in the Outlander PHEV. It is the only PHEV with a DC fast charger. If you plug into a CHAdeMO outlet, you’ll be able to fill the battery up to 80 percent full in about 25 minutes. Compare that with around four hours for a full charge using Level 2, and eight hours from a standard 120-volt outlet.
Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV
Mitsubishi Outlander has a four-wheel-drive system, called S-AWC, is standard on both trims thanks to two 60-kW motors, one on the front axle and one in back. It can tow up to a maximum 1,500 kg (3,300lb). And there is a 1,140-watt onboard sound system plus two,120-volt outlets in what Mitsubishi representatives called the “ultimate tailgating vehicle” that will let you plug in a TV in the stadium parking lot or a mini-fridge if you’re out glamping. While the battery should provide hours of power, the gas engine will come on to power the outlets if needed.
