Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Specs
The Mitsubishi Outlander has 3 drive modes for optimal fuel efficiency. EV drive mode, Series hybrid mode, and parallel hybrid drive mode.
Using a twin motor 4wd system, the Outlander PHEV provides superior response by pairing an all-new 4wd integrated vehicle dynamic control system with the instant high torque of an electric motor.
The battery pack is a 12kWh lithium ion battery consisting of 80 cells mounted in series and enclosed in a secure frame.
The motors are a smaller, lighter and higher output version of the permanent magnet synchronous motor used in the i-MiEV and are located in the front and rear. Each motor has an output of 60kW and maximum combined torque of 230Nm.
The gasoline engine functions solely as a generator in series hybrid mode and provides drive power in parallel mode. It is a 2.0 liter inline 4-cylinder engine with variable timing on the intake valves.
The Outlander PHEV has extra soundproofing in order to ensure the vehicle remains as quiet as possible in EV Drive Mode, even when the gasoline engine is in use.
With 5 passenger seating, and lots of cargo space, the Mitsubishi Outlander plug-in hybrid works great for commuting and for weekend trips with the family.
Outlander PHEV Electric Range
The all electric range of the Outlander PHEV is around 37 miles when tested on the Japanese test cycle which is more lenient than the US test.
Mitsubishi’s UK website states the electric range is up to 34 miles “without using petrol” and then the 2.0 litre petrol engine kicks in and provides up to 148 MPG combined.
Outlander PHEV Charging
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV will feature a J1772 3.3kW charger as well as a CHAdeMO quick charger.
Using the j1772 charger hooked up to a 15A, 240V supply, the Outlander PHEV will be able to fully charge in 4 hours. Using the CHAdeMO charging standard, the Outlander plug-in hybrid can charge to 80% in 30 minutes.
The Outlander PHEV also comes with a 120V charging cord to use when you can only find a standard outlet, and should provide a full charge in around 8 -10 hours.
