Re: Manual drive-mode selection?

I think that for Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV there should be Pure EV mode incorporated. I am not sure but there is a button that is used for switching hybrid and electric modes. However, I can’t be confident about that. Mitsubishi did not set out to make this a purely electric vehicle - they tried -r...

Re: Manual drive-mode selection?

No it does not. You can pre-heat it by timer or remote control from the plugged-in power and it will run shorter, if at all.

A good thing the Outlander cannot fly....

How is the accuracy of your Altimeter? Mine tells me I am at elevations between 50 and 200 meter. Yet I live 3 meters below sea level. Does Mitsubishi have many F2 fighters crashing on landing? On the subject of accuracy: the range indication is quite pessimistic. It will tell me I have 0 Kms left, ...

Re: Volvo V60 PHEV Plug In

The Volvo is an Estate, the Outlander a SUV.
The Volvo has a Diesel engine, the Outlander a (more silent) petrol one
The Volvo has only 2/3rds of the torque of the Outlander.
The Volvo is at least 30% more expensive.

Re: VS Tesla Model x

Maybe - I would have to drive it to see how specs translate in user experience. Mitsubishi has decades of experience in building practical cars - and it shows. Anyway the dealer network is nowhere near adequate Tesla has five dealers over the whole country, of which three are in Amsterdam - a full 9...

Re: Understanding the three driving modes

It feels pretty powerful when the extra engine cuts in. Far more so than the specs suggest. One thing threw me though. The sound of the engine. It is well damped and not too obtrusive, but it gave me a deja-vue feeling. Tonight it came to me: it sounds exactly like the kick-down on a Daf Daffodil! :...

Re: Some complaining of burning smell?

Yes, I had a bit of new-engine-running-hot smell the first time I did a long drive on the motorway. I am over 1000 km now and it is long since gone. With a normal new car you will have that in the first few Kms, but on this one you drive out of the dealership with full batteries and use the ICE only...

Re: WiFi

I wonder if it will work to have a WiFi repeater near the car? I think I’ll just order one and try - these things are not expensive.

Re: Parking alert system seemed not best

The parking system sensors have received negative reviews, but too bad for most they are bundled in the upgrade package with the LED lights and other preferred accessories. One option would be to opt for an aftermarket parking assist system with 4 sensors? That's not an option if leasing as cutting...

Re: Parking alert system seemed not best

There is a pushbutton that will mute them - but only once - they will start beeping again on the next occasion.
