No range anxiety in electric

Mitsubishi took a unique to the media launch programme of the PHEV (plug-in hybrid vehicle) last week by local motoring scribes on a of the wind farm known as Wind which is operated by Energy at Makara near

Meridian operates 62 turbines at Wind which it says enough wind power to more than 142 megawatts of which is enough to power than 62,000 households on

Mitsubishi is convinced that vehicles such as the new Outlander provide the best solution for New motorists due to our high production of electricity from hydro and farms.

The company says it a leadership position in the New Zealand with the launch of the all-electric and says it will continue to do so the new Outlander PHEV which can be into any domestic 10 Amp power

According to Mitsubishi when off-peak, a full 6.5 hour costs about $1.41, so a electric-only commute costs $7. Owners can use the special smartphone app model only) to set the car to charge or turn on the air con so it’s cooler getting in, or switch on the lights so the easy to spot at night.

The says the Outlander PHEV is the ever to meld electric technologies with all-wheel-drive in an SUV body. Two variants are available the Outlander PHEV XLS from plus on road costs and the PHEV VRX from $66,990 on road costs.

The benefit of the PHEV to the owner, says is the environmental performance and quietness of an EV, the and handling of a 4WD, and the practicality of an Plus economy of 1.9L/100km.

At the point in the media drive from Wellington to Paekakariki and Mitsubishi technical manager Robinson checked the fuel of the cars being driven by of the press.

The six Outlander PHEV vehicles fuel consumption results 1.7L/100km to 3.2L/100km, so quite the vehicle can better its official which silenced one or two doubtful journalists.

The car can be plugged into a power socket overnight, and can commute to work up to 52 km purely in EV

The twin electric motors produce 332 Newton metres of which Mitsubishi says the PHEV to the mantle of being the car of the Outlander range.

It says range anxiety is also a of the past: the 2-litre petrol is constantly ready to generate to top up the battery, and add extra power it’s needed.

The Outlander has three power sources. Two electric motors, one driving the axle and one the rear. Together contribute more torque Newton metres) than the V6 Outlander.

This in conjunction the 2-litre petrol engine, 88kW of power at 4500rpm, and to turn wheels or generate as required.

The car automatically selects from drive modes, depending on and driving conditions, on load, and the driver wants to charge the

In EV mode, the car’s in full drive. The electric motors all wheels, using the drive An overnight charge gives a 52 km

In series hybrid mode, the motors still power the and the petrol engine works the onboard generator to top up the drive accelerate hard, or climb a and the petrol engine helps by the generator.

In parallel hybrid the MIVEC petrol engine 91 octane) takes over at speeds, when it’s at its efficient: the electric motors when extra power’s

Driving the car is very much the as a traditional automatic. Press the start button, select D or R the joystick and accelerate away.

The big difference is this: the car will whichever drive mode suits the driving conditions.

In EV the car uses its own motion to charge up the through regenerative braking. the drivers foot leaves the the electric motors behave engine brakes and convert energy into electricity. the driver brakes, more goes into the battery: can be seen on the instrument screen.

To battery energy, press a and the petrol engine will be more often, charging the even when the car’s it takes about 40 minutes to 80% capacity when stationary.

to Mitsubishi 4WD is permanent when in either the EV or series mode. front and rear axles having their own electric it says there is exceptional wheel drive traction. The Super All Wheel Control distributes power and brake between the four wheels for stability.

The PHEV has the maximum 5-star E-NCAP safety rating.

The pack is shielded in a framed, sheet metal casing and resistant to debris and bumps the road.

In the VRX model, two additional systems help keep the safe in traffic. If a vehicle in slows down suddenly and the doesn’t hit the brake pedal, the collision mitigation system it for them. Working in tandem is cruise control, which radar to match the speed of the to speed to the vehicle in front, to keep a safe distance the two.

Pedestrians are kept too. In EV mode the car’s quiet, so at low speeds it alerts with a gentle alarm.

A touch screen shows how the flow changes based on the mode and the conditions. Drivers can how energy is being consumed and see ECO score, range and other data.

Car and SUV was impressed with the grunt-y and the deft handling of the Outlander over some fairly and hilly roads around as well as its quiet (at times silent) on-road ambience in the We look forward to an extended drive of the vehicle very and hopefully we’ll better our fuel economy result of
