The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is a plug-in hybrid compact SUV.  The Outlander PHEV is powered by a 117-horsepower 2.0-liter 4-cylinder gasoline engine, combined with two 60 kilowatt electric motors, one on the front axle and the other at the rear.  Altogether, the combined gasoline-electric powertrain produces 277 horsepower.  The Outlander PHEV’s two electric motors pull from a 12 kWh lithium ion battery pack that can be completely recharged in 3.5 hours on level 2 charging, or in 25 minutes using a CHAdeMO DC Fast Charger.  The Outlander PHEV seats 5 passengers and has a total towing capacity of 1500 pounds.  In gasoline-only mode, the Outlander achieves 25 MPG; with the electric motor enabled, the MPG jumps to 74 MPGe.

    Total HP isn’t 277. Max power in EV mode is 60 kW/80 HP (a battery limitation). In series hybrid mode, max power is 120 kW/160 HP. In parallel hybrid mode, max power is 142 kW/190 HP. Source: Mitsubishi Motors:

    The EPA fuel economy numbers are pretty misleading for this car. To get the mileage down to 25, one has to be running the car hard (hills at 75 MPG, for one example). My average economy is 43 MPG on long drives at 65-70. The ICE runs as needed to pull hills or pass, and charges the battery at the same time. Long drives consist of the car automatically switching between parallel hybrid, series hybrid, and EV mode depending on speed, load, and state of charge.

    Does it just have “electric only” and “gasoline only” modes?
    Does it not have a “hybrid mode”?

    Actually, I work for Mitsubishi in SW Washington. The into Price that you have listed here is not available, period. It starts at roughly $995 more than this (I think that this price is missing the destination charge that must be added to the cost of any new vehicle). Good News, this is prior to rebates. After the Mitsubishi North America factory rebate, it is around $33045 plus applicable taxes, lic, and doc fees for an entry level 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV SEL-AWC. then you get the federal tax credit of up to $5836 (depending on your personal tax situation), and then you have various State and Local programs to get it down even further. These are fantastic rigs and I am excited we have them to get out there, but I wanted to make sure that Be more than happy to send you a Monroney Sticker for one if you wanted it for your site. 🙂
