Checking in from Peterborough, ON. Just picked up our Labrador Black base model on Friday morning. Great service from Peterborough Mitsubishi. Had a hitch and wiring installed before we picked it up.

So far very pleased with the vehicle. Just charging on home outlet but may look into a level 2 charger in the future. Trying to find out if I can use an outlet at work to charge but since my commute round trip is only 32 clicks it isn't really necessary.

Still figuring out the ins and outs it all, for which this forum has been helpful already. Thanks! Managed to get Mitsubishi Remote II app working, although
Android Auto on my phone has been a problem so far, I'll figure it out though. ODBlink LX arrives on Wed. via Amazon.

Cheers all,

Trev

Checking in from Toronto, I will pick-up a 2018 Rally Red GT a week from Monday.

Pretty excited about the car and with 36-37km commute I hope to use very little gas charging overnight and at work. Hope not to be disappointing by the EV range.

Appreciate all the good info in this forum, thanks all for sharing your knowledge.

Talking about that, about the previous post, @tmiddel, what are you getting the ODBlink LX for? Just vehicle diagnostics? Thx

Hello, new PHEV owner joining the forum. I have been researching the PHEV ever since my wife got her Audi A3 E-tron a year and a half ago. I thought the Ontario election had sealed my fate as an ICE driver, but then found out about the $7k rebate still being available for in-stock EV and hybrid vehicles. Traded in my Outback for a Titanium Grey Outlander SE PHEV and so far it has been very nice.

I was a bit worried about the overall power, I had read not to let the battery get too low in hilly areas, but it seems decently peppy. The A3 E-tron is definitely more sports car, while the PHEV is of course more practical. My wife has range envy now too. With the larger PHEV battery, I'm getting apprx 40-45km per charge, compared to her apprx 30km.

It's my first car with Android Auto and it's great having the maps on the main screen. The dealer was worried it wouldn't work with my Blackberry, but no issues. Haven't tried the Remote Control app yet.

Looking for a Level 2 charger and see good reviews for the portable Duosida unit on Amazon. The supplied OEM charger seems good quality, but it's nice to have faster charging for the weekend! I tried a ChaDeMo fast charger, but the cost is high enough you might as well buy gas, and the Leaf drivers really need them more than the PHEV does.

It works well with the PHEVwatchdog app that will keep track of your battery status. Personally I won't drive without it. The car will work well without active involvement, but like most people on this board, I like to be engaged in the active management of the battery charge and it shows you exactly what is going on and how you can be more economical. It will change your driving style as you have 'glide mode' that is like putting your gear in Neutral on an ICE car. It's amazing how far the car rolls in B0. Thus your traffic lights approach is going to change.

Enjoy exploring the new features of this unique car.

Checking in from Laval, Québec

Enjoy my first ever SUV. Had an 2013 Sonata Hybrid before. Was able to get lots of rebate and government incentives and bought a base model.

We had an issue with a battery relay which has been discussed on the technical forum

Greetings from Winnipeg.
My wife and I signed the documents last night and look forward to pick up our new 2018 SE Touring on Friday.
We will be mostly be using it for short commutes.

Given that Winnipeg often gets below -20C (and sometimes -30C) and that we don't have a garage, I'm looking forward to learning all the preheating, battery warming and EV only tricks.
