Looking for an educated review of Outlander PHEV

It seems that the Outlander PHEV has been in people's hands around the world for at least a little bit, now. I have yet to see an educated review of the performance and other comparisons to PHEVs on the market. I realize that it is the only PHEV SUV out, but even still, a point by point comparison r...

Re: Mitsubishi claims up to 148mpg for Outlander PHEV

No kidding... On my Plug-in Prius, which is rated at 95 MPGe, my MPG per tank has been: 80MPG 80MPG 120MPG 120MPG 101MPG 105MPG 102MPG and my current tank, at 365 miles so far: 136MPG Totally depends on your ability to fit your trips into the electric range or not. My tanks with low mpg had numerous...

Re: PHEV production restarting

I concur... if Mitsubishi waits too long, someone is going to do an unexpected release of their own PHEV SUV... GM could sneak in a Volt SUV variant, Ford can slam a PHEV into the Escape, Toyota usually takes more time, so I doubt they will do anything so dramatic anytime soon... Honda has been all ...

Re: PHEV versus Diesel

I have owned 7 diesel cars in the US, and loved each one. Nothing quite compares to the torque and HP of a turbo diesel, along with great freeway MPG. That being said, there are reasons why my last car was a hybrid gas, and my current car is a plug-in hybrid gas car: 1) My driving habits suit a plug...

Re: Phev orders

Are you suggesting that the Lexus RX is coming out in a plug-in hybrid? If so, please quote your source! that would be awesome! If you are saying the RX is coming in a hybrid... it is already here.. has been since 2005. There are hybrid SUVs out there, but none (as far as I know) are plug-ins.

Re: Mitsubishi Outlander SUV sips 1.6L/100km

Ahhh... here it is, at least in the Dutch brochure, listed as "Branstofverbruik in hybride modus (gecombineerd) 5.8 l/100km"

http://www.mitsubishi-motors.nl/uploade ... %20pix.pdf

Which converts to 40.55 mpg in hybrid mode.

Re: Mitsubishi Outlander SUV sips 1.6L/100km

What is the efficiency AFTER the battery runs out? In my Plug-in Prius, which only goes 11 miles on a charge, I still get 50mpg.

Re: Cargo Space in the 2014 Outlander PHEV

Here is a review of the gas version, with numbers quoted for space behind each row of seats. Keep in mind the PHEV has only two rows: "The Outlander's got plenty of cargo space past its nifty flap-fold access gate, which has a lower tailgate portion that folds down for a flat loading floor. There's ...

Re: Cargo Space in the 2014 Outlander PHEV

Several sites are reporting the PHEV cargo area behind the rear seats as being 463 liters, which I find to be a very dubious number... that would translate to 16.35 cubic feet, a number which puts it as a smaller space than either a Plug-in Prius at 20.6 cu ft or C-Max Energi at 19.5 cu ft. I call b...
