The innovative Plug-in Hybrid system that powers the Outlander PHEV delivers remarkable eco efficiency without compromising comfort, performance or convenience. Sophisticated yet, practical, it represents the next generation of electric cars. The new Outlander Plug-in Hybrid SUV brings you fuel efficiency like you’ve never experienced before in an SUV.
A highly efficient 2.0L MIVEC petrol engine paired with high output 60kW twin front and rear motors and a high capacity 12kWh drive battery can produce a combined fuel economy of 1.9L/100km.* That’s remarkable for any car, let alone an SUV. And there’s no loss of power and no loss of range. PHEV offers an unbelievable cruising range.
Around the suburbs or the city you can drive up to 50km a day in EV mode when fully charged. That’s ZERO fuel and ZERO drive time emissions. You’ll most likely need to charge every few days but that’s as simple as plugging your PHEV into a 15 amp power point at home.
Outlander PHEV’s roomy interior gives you plenty of space for any trip, near or far. The Outlander PHEV’s battery is stored under the floor to maximise interior space and lower the centre of gravity for better safety and handling. The seats can be folded down to make extra room for whatever you need to carry. While storage space beneath the generous cargo area floor is ideal for conveniently storing the charging cable. And for those with busy hands, the Outlander PHEV Exceed’s power tailgate conveniently opens and closes with the touch of your Smart Key.
Smartphone Link Display Audio (SDA)^ is a true extension of your smartphone via Android Auto™¹ or Apple CarPlay². Connected to Outlander PHEV’s 7” touch screen, you can access your phone’s compatible apps, get directions, make calls, send and receive messages and listen to music from any source including DAB radio.
Eco mode puts the air conditioning in energy-efficient mode and moderates acceleration to improve fuel efficiency.
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Exceed features automatic dual zone climate control for the driver and front passengers.
Mitsubishi’s Smart Key and One Touch Start System lets you lock and unlock doors, and even start the engine with the touch of a button, all while your Smart Key is tucked safely in your bag or pocket.
The premium leather four-spoke steering wheel features paddle shifts and Bluetooth® phone connectivity, audio and cruise control switches for convenience and safety.
ACC uses radar technology to detect cars ahead and adjusts the speed of your car accordingly while maintaining a safe distance set by you.
* Exceed only. Never rely solely on this system, it may not activate in some situations and may be unable to decelerate sufficiently if the vehicle in front brakes suddenly or if another vehicle cuts into your path. Refer to the user manual.
The gearshift selector always returns to the centre position like a joystick. The D-position provides pleasant driving performance in accordance with acceleration pedal operation. The B-position increases regenerative braking and provides two strength settings.
The EV Priority Switch allows you to manually select all-electric driving, so the petrol engine will only start automatically if the battery’s charge drops to a low level or very high power output demands are made.
The world’s first plug-in hybrid SUV lets you go beyond the boundaries of ordinary driving.
Twin electric motors and a highly efficient petrol engine optimise performance according to your driving. Separately mounted motors at the front and rear axles deliver incredible responsive AWD performance with S-AWC (Super All Wheel Control) ensuring excellent driving stability and intuitive, linear handling. Smooth, quiet, comfort with abundant power to tackle off-road terrain with highly efficient purpose.
With a complete charge taking just 9.8KWh* of electricity and an EV range of up to 54 kilometres, the Outlander PHEV can run on its EV battery for a fraction of the cost of conventional petrol or diesel.
You can choose how and when the battery is used with the touch of a button. When the engine is engaged, the Battery Charge mode continuously charges the battery. In Battery Save mode the engine will maintain the charge you have, allowing you to save the battery charge for later.
Kinetic energy which is generated whilst braking is also used to recharge the drive battery. As soon as the accelerator pedal is released the motors function as power generators. Six* levels of regenerative braking can be selected via paddles mounted within fingertip reach of the steering wheel.
* Except when Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is active.
A pull up to apply/push down to release switch replaces the traditional handbrake lever. The Brake Auto Hold function makes stop/start driving in heavy traffic easier, by avoiding the need to keep your foot on the brake pedal while stationary.
For improved traction and stability, you can press the 4WD LOCK button to simulate locking of the centre differential, equally distributing torque to all four wheels for improved traction and stability on slippery surfaces.
A free app for your Smartphone (Android or Apple)* lets you remotely control your Outlander PHEV Exceed from the comfort of your home. You can monitor the remaining charge time, control the charging timer settings, check the alarm, turn on/off the parking and headlights, and even turn on the heater or air conditioning or set if for later, all from the comfort of your living room.
*Exceed models only. The vehicle and Smartphone need to be interconnected within a Wi-Fi area. Some Smartphones may not be supported.
All PHEV models feature reverse camera and rear parking sensors. When reverse gear is engaged, the reverse camera image appears automatically in the dash and sensors warn you if you’re getting too close to objects behind you. Exceed models also feature the convenience of front parking sensors*.
*Exceed model only. Please drive safely and never rely solely on these systems while driving.
The Outlander PHEV Exceed’s Lane Departure Warning uses a camera to issue an audible alert and shows a warning on the multifunction display if your vehicle drifts from its lane while the turn signals are not operating.
Outlander PHEV Exceed’s Rear Cross Traffic Alert system helps detect a moving vehicle when reversing. It alerts you via a buzzer sound, and an indicator light appearing in the combination meter and a blinking light in the side door mirror.
*Exceed model only. Please drive safely and do not rely solely on this system, which may not detect all moving vehicles in certain conditions. Drivers are fully responsible for their own safe driving.
The Outlander PHEV Exceed features automatic high-beam for added safety, comfort and driving ease at night. It detects both the headlights of oncoming vehicles and the tail lights of vehicles ahead, automatically switching between high and low beams.
Forward Collision Mitigation System (FCM) on Exceed models detects obstructions ahead and issues a visual and audio alert when there is danger of collision, automatically applying the brakes to avoid collision or reduce impact.
*Exceed model only. Please drive safely and never rely solely on these systems while driving. The detection and control capabilities of FCM are supplementary only and do not prevent collision in every situation. Please read the operation manual carefully and be aware of these limitations.
Change lanes with confidence with the Outlander PHEV’s Blind Spot Warning system. In addition, the Lane Change Assist system sounds an audible alert and displays a blinking warning in the door mirror when the system detects a high collision probability with a vehicle coming from behind moving to the same direction within 3.5m from PHEV’s side or 70m from its rear bumper.
*Exceed model only. Please drive safely and never rely solely on these systems while driving. The detection and control capabilities of BSW and LCA are supplementary only and do not warn you of vehicles in blind spots in every situation. BSW and LCA may not activate in some situations. Please read the operation manual carefully and be aware of these limitations. It operates when a vehicle is in a rear, right or left blind spot and is not designed to detect motorcycles or pedestrians, but may detect them and activate in some situations.
The Outlander PHEV Exceed’s Ultrasonic misacceleration Mitigation System reduces the chance and severity of hitting obstacles 4m in front or behind a vehicle when a driver mistakenly presses the accelerator when stationary or at speeds of up to 10km/h.
* Exceed model only. Please drive safely and never rely solely on these systems while driving. Ultrasonic misacceleration Mitigation System (UMS) may not activate in some situations. The engine output control activates when driving; 0-10km/h (not in N or P Position); obstacle/vehicle is within approx. 4m range; accelerator pedal is pushed hard or abruptly; driver is not turning to avoid obstacle/vehicle. The detection and control capabilities of UMS are supplementary only and do not prevent misacceleration in every situation. Please read the operation manual carefully and be aware of these limitations. It operates when a vehicle or obstacle is within an approx. 4m range and is not designed to detect motorcycles or pedestrians, but may detect them and activate in some situations.
Outlander PHEV Exceed’s Multi Around Monitor provides a 360° bird’s-eye view of your car. The views from cameras mounted on the front, rear and sides of the vehicle (including bird’s-eye view) can be displayed in various combinations to reveal what is in blind spots and help you park more safely.
