Learn how this SUV is leading the way of smarter vehicles, with us at West Side Mitsubishi!
Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Smart Technology
The “PHEV” of the Outlander PHEV stands for plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, which contains both an electric motor and gas engine. This system works together to give you the efficiency of electric with the power of gas. Your vehicle offers up three different driving modes (EV Drive, Series Hybrid and Parallel Hybrid) that adapt to suit your current needs, whether leaning more toward efficiency or power. Charging is simple, too, with a variety of options. A regular 120 volt outlet will get the job done, but a 240 volt charger plug can do it even faster at public stations. As well, DC charging and a battery charge mode that charges on-the-go are available, so you’ll have a multitude of ways to keep your Outlander PHEV fully topped up. All this leads to you getting up to 499 km of range out of both your electric motor and gas engine before you have to refuel either, giving you terrific efficiency. But that’s not all in how economical this SUV is.
Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Efficiency
It’s a pain to always have to fill up, both in effort and on your wallet, and with rising gas prices, there’s no reason for you not to have an alternative with your vehicle. The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is exactly this. It not only cuts down on the gas you have to use, but multiplies it with the fact that electricity costs less than gas. Its EV economy is terrific across the board, with 3.0 Le/KM in the city, 3.4 Le/100 KM on the highway, coming out to 3.2 Le/100 KM combined. Why rely on the old stand-by of gas when you can drastically cut down on your fuel bill each month with the added help of electric power? It’s good for the environment and your finances, so the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV keeps the driver and world around it equally in mind.
