UK member here, I have been a member of the forum for some time now, back in 2015 i nearly got a 4h however due to prices and BIK i ended up ordering a C350e Merc - (but thats another story.) and i ended up getting a new Skoda Superb Estate due to waiting 12 months for the merc and losing my rag.
A few questions i have now are as follows....
I have a new brochure in front of my from the dealer and the latest PDF from online, but things are not really clear...
I see the following models, Juro, 4h, 4hs, 5h, etc... which i can do a dummy order online with. however if you scroll down the page, theres then mentioned of the following models -
Verve, Design and Dynamic. Dynamic Safety, Exceed, Exceed Safety - https://www.mitsubishi-motors.co.uk/cars/outlander-phev
From a bit of reading, it would seem that these are new models along side the older names - but i am unable to find anywhere if the specs are the same / document with a side by side compare.
My key requirements are leather, LED headlights. android auto.
- From my old knowledge, i recall some models didnt have an electric pre heater / electric heater to prevent engine turning on if running on EV, is this still the case ?
- Fuel tank range / MPG - im looking for a ball park figure for lets say a 200 mile motorway drive, half loaded. - i understand there is a small fuel tank of 45 litres still, but what is a realistic mpg for a longer mileage run at 70mph ish from your experience. (of course this can be offset against local EV miles, but i would like a realistic figure.)
- Performance - now i dont expect it to be a rocket ship, but 5 years ago when i drove one, im pretty sure it hard a 2.0 N/A petrol engine, i see now its a 2.4 unit, is the performance any better ? mid range performance rather than a 0-6 sprint which i see is in the region of 10secs. (is that figure battery and petrol or either or ? )
- Towbar - i see i cant order one from the factory, towing weights are detailed in the pdf, i assume any after market company can fit them, (want to ensure im not limited to a dealer fit only) if after market, do they require a dedicated electric bypass coding to the car ? (whats the typical price) - (intention for tow bar is for my towbar bike rack and small garden trailer - (no caravan, sold that a few years ago)
Thanks for reading - i think that maybe all for the moment -
