Re: Fuel economy at highway speed phev vs ice model

The focus of these vehicles is totally different. Hence the different fuel economy figures. Toyota is electrifying a gas-powered vehicle by making it more sustainable. Mitsubishi is building an electric vehicle with a gas-powered generator on board. Right, that is understood. However, hoping for th...

Re: extended range fuel tank?

I doubt it will fit. The 2023+ is a composite tank and its benefit was the ability to mold to the nooks and crannys to gain the extra litres over the traditional shaped tank.

Re: Fuel economy at highway speed phev vs ice model

See the first post in this thread. See my other comments in this thread to get the whole picture. I did, and thanked you for those comments. You indicated you could provide more insight with the actual numbers. For ease of reference they are: 2023 Outlander ICE gets 7.9 litres per 100km, PHEV gets ...

Re: Cold Weather Performance - North American 2023

Is this from your 2018 owners manual? We are trying to find out more about how the 2023 model works. The spec. sheet does indicate that the battery has both heating and cooling capabilities while charging but I can't find any information about the system. We had to settle for an SEL and will get it...

Do you know if a level 1 evse will turn the PTC heater elements on when needed?

Re: Cold Weather Performance - North American 2023

I'm asking because on Lon12's previous posts about in this thread about it being too cold for the EV battery to even start the vehicle.

Does anyone know if level 1 charging keeps the EV battery warm enough to avoid the battery too cold situation?

Re: Cold Weather Performance - North American 2023

Does anyone know if battery preconditioning/warming occurs when charging via a level 1 evse on a 2023+ generation? I've heard not to plug it in when the battery is full to extend the life of the battery, but would like to know if plugging in with a level 1 evse keeps the battery warm enough to at le...

Re: Fuel economy at highway speed phev vs ice model

The Toyota Rav4 Prime similar to the Toyota Rav4 Hybrid has an eCVT that drives the front wheels and a weak electric motor driving the back wheels when needed. The AWD capabilities of the Hybrid and Prime Rav4 are limited compared to the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. The Rav4 Prime's torque on the fro...

Re: Fuel economy at highway speed phev vs ice model

First of all there is no point to use Save or Charge before your battery drops. Battery won't be charged by the ICE over 80% anyway. There isn't a setting to prevent ICE charging the battery cause there is no transmission and the ICE should be used in a most efficient way possible at required for t...
