Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV: The First 4WD SUV Hybrid Rechargeable

Mitsubishi promised before even launching Outlander. today it is made thing: a rechargeable hybrid version made its appearance at the Paris Motor Show.


After the Chevrolet Volt. Opel Ampera, rechargeable Toyota Prius and Fisker Karma. Mitsubishi prepares to reaching the market emerging plug-in hybrids, with its Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV . Like its competitors, it was announced for a long time through the cars concept PX-MiEV and PX-MiEV II. Mentioned models, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV claims to be the only rechargeable hybrid four-wheel-drive . In the meantime the Volvo V60 D6 Plug In Hybrid .

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV adopts a very similar architecture of Lexus RX450h. The front, four-cylinder gasoline 2.0 and the electric engine of 60 kW (81 horses) and 137 Nm are connected to the wheels through an epicyclic gearing. Another 60 kW electric motor and 195 Nm load rear wheels, which creates a full transmission without mechanical connection between the two axles.

The main interest of the Outlander PHEV is of course to ride for 55 km (depending on the carried out measures on Japanese cycle) solely by the force of the power contained in the 12 kWh lithium-ion battery. In this case, only two electric motors will auto. For strong acceleration (at), the four le quatre-cylindres cylinder comes into play to drive an electrical generator of 70 kW (95 horses) which has the role to recharge the battery.

Expected however more details on this specific mode of operation, without knowing the details of the operation of each of the elements in connection with the epicyclic gearing.

When the autonomy in all-electric mode is used, the 4 cylinder comes into play in the same way. However, when free acceleration, the 4-cylindres loses its role as generator to directly cause the nose gear, in synergy with the electric motor before. With the epi-cycle gearing that operates as a continuously variable transmission, it can then turn to its optimum operating point for best performance.

For this version of the Outlander . Mitsubishi has applied its experience of electric vehicles, capitalized with the i-MiEV. As to the latter, the lithium-ion battery is place under the floor. Manufacturer announces a total recharge in four and a half hours while just a quick recharge of half an hour to recover 80% of capacity. Of course, this system has a significant influence on the mass.

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV and weighs 1,810 kg against 1.495 kg for a 2.2 Diesel Outlander. However, it remains well below the 2,110 kg of a Lexus RX450h .

Mitsubishi announces for this model use the Japanese standard of 1.6L/100 km. However, remember if this value corresponds to no tangible reality, since it is a weighted between autonomy in electric mode and consumption once committed thermal engine, not yet unveiled figure. Mitsubishi has not yet revealed rates of this model, which will be first marketed in early 2013 Japan prior to landing in Europe.
