MITSUBISHI Outlander PHEV – 2.0 Plug-in Petrol Hybrid

The game changer

Demand for the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV (Plug In Hybrid Electric Vehicle) has far exceeded expectations in its first few months on sale in Japan and the Netherlands. The factory has now announced that they’re doubling production to keep up with demand, which is great news. Unfortunately, it also means that production for other markets, including the UK, has been put back until early 2014 while manufacturing catches up with demand.

While this is disappointing news, we have driven the car and can assure you that it is well worth waiting for.

Economy and emissions

Over the coming weeks we will delve further into the outstanding technological advances that make the Outlander PHEV such a ground breaking car, but let’s start with the most important facts first – fuel economy, emissions and battery range.

Of course, your average economy figure will vary depending on your driving style circumstances.

Outlander PHEV fuel consumption in mpg (ltrs/100km): Urban n/a, Extra Urban n/a, Combined, weighted 148.7 (1.9), CO2 Emissions 44 g/km. Fuel consumption for plug in hybrid vehicles is measured in two conditions, one with the battery freshly charged and another where it is significantly depleted. A weighted average of the two figures obtained is calculated based on an assumption that a vehicle is driven 16 miles (25km) beyond its maximum range, using the engine as required without recharging.

Fuel figures shown are official EU test figures, to be used as a guide for comparative purposes and may not reflect real driving results.


There’s no substitute for a cleaner environment

Mitsubishi is committed to reducing CO2 in innovative ways. The Outlander PHEV uses green plastics, made using the oils extracted from waste cashew nuts

Substituting petrol based materials with the resin extracted from cashew nuts allows for application in areas of the vehicle where high heat resistance is required and can reduce CO2 emissions by up to 12% compared to a conventional plastic.

Mitsubishi also make use of sugar cane molasses in the production of floor mats. The fibres from the molasses are interwoven with polypropylene fibres to produce durable mats with high resistance to wear and heat, which reduce CO2 emissions by up to 15% compared with conventional production methods.

Everything covered

Details of the Outlander PHEV warranty have now been announced. The Outlander PHEV benefits from the same great 3 year, unlimited mileage warranty as all Mitsubishi vehicles, but in addition the EV components will be covered by a 5 year warranty.

The Outlander PHEV will be covered by a 3 year, unlimited mileage warranty with pan European roadside, home and accident assistance. The EV components, including the main battery, will be covered by a 5 year warranty. Full details of the terms and conditions will be made available when the vehicle is launched.
