Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, Plug-in Hybrid SUV

After winning the hearts of many motorists around the world, the Mitsubishi's first Plug-In Hybrid SUV arrives in Canada, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. We would like to give you an overview of the various advantages of this 2018 Outlander PHEV and its autonomy.

It's here now!


First rechargeable hybrid SUV

Equipped with both an electric engine and a petrol engine, this Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is the first hybrid vehicle offered by the Japanese brand.


It first appeared in March 2014 but had not been planned for Canada until then. This will be done in early 2018!

A 2.0L engine

This new SUV will be equipped with an internal combustion engine and two electric motors.


The petrol engine will be Mitsubishi's 2.0L 4-cylinder MIVEC 2.0L engine.It provides 117 horsepower and 137 lb-ft of torque.

Two electric engines

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV will have 2 electric motors located on each axle. Thus, this hybrid SUV will be able to use the 4-wheel drive even when driving in 100% electric mode.

What is the autonomy of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV 2018?

In 100% electric driving, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV can travel up to 35 kilometers according to the official Mitsubishi figures.


In fact, if we refer to real tests, autonomy could be more important than that. For example, we can expect to drive more than 45 kilometres in 100% electric mode on the highway with a constant speed of 90 km/hour.

With the use of the hybrid system, the Outlander PHEV offers an incredible fuel consumption per 100km. For this new generation SUV, fuel consumption is only 3.2L per 100 km by alternating electric motor and combustion engine.

With the petrol engine alone, fuel consumption should be below 9 L/100km.

The S-AWC system

Standard on this 2018 Outlander PHEV, the Mitsubishi S-AWC system enables you to benefit from an outstanding handling. Recognized for its efficiency, this AWD system will prove to be your best ally in difficult weather conditions.

Does the 2018 Outlander PHEV have 5 or 7 seats?

This hybrid SUV will only be available for 5 people. The manufacturer has not announced the possibility of a 7-seater version. The battery and charging system take up a lot of space, so it is not easy to equip this Outlander PHEV with 2 additional seats.

How many speeds does the PHEV have?

Equipped with a Mitsubishi CVT transmission, this Outlander PHEV will have only one speed. The manufacturer did not want to equip this hybrid SUV with simulated ratios like the other models.


In addition to this system, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV should have several safety features:

  • 7 airbags
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Collision avoidance system
  • Involuntary acceleration detector
  • Lane departure warning system

In addition, the Outlander PHEV RISE (Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution) bodywork is made of high-tension steel. Thus, this considerably reduces the consequences of impacts by dispersing energy efficiently, and maintaining an important cabin integrity.

Connectivity on the 2018 Outlander PHEV

As for the entire 2018 Mitsubishi range, the Japanese manufacturer has also focused on connectivity. This should result in a 7-inch touch screen, making navigation faster and smoother. It will also be equipped with the Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.


The touch audio system will also be equipped with SiriusXM satellite radio, which is expected to be available for free for the first 3 months on the new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.

Outlander PHEV battery specifications

In terms of features, this new 2018 Outlander PHEV will operate autonomously in hybrid technology. However, to increase your driving experience, it will be possible to choose between 3 driving modes:


- Priority EV mode: by selecting this option, the Outlander PHEV will be 100% electric. This vehicle doesn't use the petrol engine except in case of strong need (exceeding 120km/h, abruptly presses on the accelerator or the low charge of battery)
- Battery charge: with this driving mode, the petrol engine will be requested. It will replace the battery and recharging it while driving
- Battery saving mode: this mode will allow you to use only the petrol mode and thus maintain the level of the battery of your Outlander PHEV.

Allowing the owner to choose his driving style, it will allow him not only to increase his driving pleasure but also to adapt the use of the Outlander PHEV's electrical function according to his journey. A gasoline engine is more efficient on the highway and the electric engine is more preferable in the city, the driver will be able to preserve the level of charge of his battery for the zones most favorable to its use.
