modern four-stroke petrol suitcase generators in the 1 to 2kw range are small, clean and almost silent.


As an owner of a EU20i for the past 12 years (originally bought for a Kedron caravan), I find they are neither odourless or silent. I would not wish to have one taking up space in my PHEV, nor do I have the urge to use the PHEV traction battery for my frequent grid outages, however the 2kW of PV given to me recently is asking to be turned into an off-grid power source. If only it made financial sense.

I contacted them on Facebook. The guy says guy have to speak to Mitsubishi about it as they’ve only available through them. Says the dealers may not know so to ask head office.

For occasional camping, tent lights etc can be used without fear of not being able to start the car the next day. Super handy I think, without noise, taking up space etc. Better than the typical installing a second battery in a 4WD setup.

Hi Guys,

Thinking of purchasing a used 2014 PHEV in Melbourne. There are currently a couple of dealers looking for between $30K to $34K (drive away) for cars with around 33,000km on the clock. These are all ex Mitsubishi owned PHEVs. (One dealer has 5 standard and 3 Aspire)
Just wondering what is a good price for a used PHEV. Is there much bargaining power out there? Reading back through the thread some of you seem to have got better deals than this.

Thanks,
Chilly

A mate of mine just paid $26k for one which had done 40K km in NSW. Not an Aspire model.

Are your choices for Aspire model? FCM and ACC are pretty good, especially for long road trips.

I paid about $40k on road for my 2014 PHEV Aspire about two years ago.

It was an ex Mitsubishi lease car and had 8,900 on the clock IIRC.

I'll see if I can dig up an original post when I first bought it, probably would have better info.

Long time lurker, first time poster - finally an appropriate place to chime in...

I got my 2014.5 Aspire with 17600km on the clock for just under $34k about this time last year, done another 17000km on it since.

I second the comment about ACC, it's really really useful and once you understand it's quirks, really a most pleasant way to get about both in the city and on the open road.

Mine was also an ex-Mitsubishi car, and I got two chargers (one 10A plug, one 15A) and a boot full of Mitsubishi technical sales literature which was quite an interesting read.
I also got about a third of a roof rack :? No rails, three of the locks - took me ages to figure what they were.
Tow bar fitted and used, no problems with towing.
Not sure if the heated seats are Aspire only but they're nice too.

Yep. They're Aspire only, and I'm super glad that I chose this model.

Turns out, they're as good for my back as a trip to the Physio.

PHEV for the win!

You must drive offroad more often. This brings a massage in addition...

I am a new owner, bought a 2014 model with only 8700km on the clock in Melbourne last week. Very happy with it, still learning all the little tricks that are part of these cars.
