Australia’s First Ever Plug in Hybrid SUV- The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

Outlander PHEV is here – delivering economy, comfort and performance. With super low emissions, remarkable fuel efficiency and genuine on and off-road performance, the Outlander PHEV is a drive like no other. Powered by an electric motor and a traditional combustion engine, this hybrid offers the convenience of an electric vehicle; without compromising the range of an SUV.
The internal combustion engine (1) provides power and range and the electric motors (2), efficiency. Separately mounted at the front and rear axles, they deliver responsive 4WD performance, while the Super All Wheel Control (S-AWC) ensures excellent stability and handling.
Providing power in most driving conditions, the drive battery (3) is located under the floor to maximize interior space and lower the centre of gravity for improved safety and handling. Simply charged at any 15 amp power point, the battery can also be recharged while you drive. The regenerative braking system (4) uses braking energy created by the vehicle to recharge the battery, allowing longer drives on less fuel.

Smartphone remote control
Control and comfort are at your fingertips with PHEV smartphone capabilities. For that touch of comfort, you can pre-heat and pre-cool your PHEV at any time using the app. Leave the air-con running in the baking hot car park and return to a perfectly chilled interior. The cooling function is driven straight off the battery with no emissions or noise. You can also remotely control the charging timer, schedule charge during off peak periods and monitor the remaining charge time with the smartphone app.

Mitsubishi electric car i-Miev to be part of a NSW Government trial by the Department of Environment Climate Change and Water (DECCW).

Mitsubishi’s innovative i-MiEV electric vehicle has today been showcased at NSW Parliament House as part of a NSW Government Trial.

The vehicle, one of only two in the country, is being trialled this week by staff at the Department of Environment Climate Change and Water (DECCW) to test its performance as part of a working fleet. During an official inspection NSW Environment and Climate Change Minister Frank Sartor met with Mitsubishi’s Vice President of Brand and Marketing, Paul Unerkov, received a brief presentation on Mitsubishi’s benchmark electric vehicle technology, and enjoyed a drive in the snappy city commuter.

Mr Sartor is enthusiastic about the potential of electric vehicles in NSW. “Our fleet has about 25,000 vehicles so the potential for electric cars to help us make savings in carbon emissions is huge,” he said.

Mr Sartor said the NSW Government has formed an Electric Vehicle Taskforce to look at the technology, infrastructure, policy, and legislation that would ensure motorists could gain early access to electric vehicles.

Mr Unerkov said “The team at Mitsubishi Motors is proud to be at the forefront of the evolution of environmentally sound motoring in Australia and is looking forward to working with the government on creating a sustainable future”.

Over the next few months, the two Mitsubishi i-MiEVs are set to continue their journey being tested in ‘real world’ environments by government fleets, private fleets and media across the nation.
