Hot off its debut at the 2016 New York International Auto Show, the Outlander PHEV is poised to change how you think about electric driving. With three different driving modes, the Outlander PHEV offers customers even more control over how they use their vehicles. The Outlander PHEV offers SUV capabilities and EV fuel economy. See the technology behind it in the video below!
The innovative drivetrain in the Outlander PHEV allows drivers to switch between three drive modes:
- EV: this mode uses full-electric power to drive the vehicle.
- Series Hybrid: this mode uses electric power with assistance from the engine. The engine generates electricity when the battery level is low, or to increase power when climbing an incline or accelerating.
- Parallel Hybrid: in this mode, the engine powers the vehicle with assistance from the electric motors when extra power is required.
"What makes the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV so special is that it offers the best of both worlds with a balance of electric efficiency and long-range practicality. Mitsubishi put its engineering prowess and knowledge to work to create a vehicle that meets the demand of a growing number of consumers who need a car that is capable and environmentally friendly. The Outlander PHEV will offer a high electric range and combined miles per gallon (MPG)." –Don Swearingen, executive vice president, MMNA
