The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is renowned for its efficient powertrain, but also offers much in the way of interior space and luxury, as well as safety features and surprising power.
A 2.0-liter gas engine and twin electric motors power the Outlander PHEV for instant torque and efficient driving. In total, the 2018 Outlander PHEV creates 117 horsepower and 137 lb-ft of torque. The combined fuel economy for the gas engine and the electric motors is 74 MPGe (miles per gallon electric).* The Outlander PHEV is the only plug-in hybrid model on the market to offer DC quick charging, which gets the Outlander to 80% capacity in just 25 minutes.
With that incredible efficiency, Mitsubishi estimates $480 a year saved at the gas pump. That is, of course, on top of initial savings from federal and state rebates that could total up to $5,836.
Not to mention, the powertrain is backed by the best warranty in the business. The new 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV carries a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty.
Other performance features for the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV include Super All-Wheel Control and a towing capacity of 1,500 lb.
Inside, the Outlander PHEV offers 63.3 cubic feet of cargo space. Interior features include available AC power outlets and cold weather features like windshield wiper de-icer and an available heated steering wheel. Features at your fingertips include driver modes (EV mode, Series Hybrid mode, and Parallel Hybrid mode) buttons, as well as regenerative braking functionality located at the steering wheel. Drivers can also use the LCD energy meter to track efficient driving and use the Smartphone Link Display System to pair their iPhone with Apple CarPlay™ or their Android through Android Auto™.
