For decades those in the know have known Mitsubishi to be the clever car company, and this may well be cleverest car of them all. The brand new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) is a full up, family-sized 4x4 SUV which utilizes both electricity and petrol to return an official fuel consumption of 156mpg. This combination of powertrains results in CO2 emissions of just 42g/km, providing startling financial benefits yet with absolutely no compromise in terms of practicality or go-anywhere, all-weather drivability. It is the ultimate in intelligent motion. It
is the new car which will set the benchmark by which all others
are judged. Little wonder it is often called the game changer.
Back in the 1960s Mitsubishi Motors Corporation recognised the role that electricity could play in powering cars. We spent over 40 years developing this technology and were the first to launch a mass produced electric vehicle in the UK – the Mitsubishi i-MiEV. The Outlander PHEV combines this knowledge and experience with the four-wheel drive practicality of the legendary Shogun and the cutting-edge performance technology developed for the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. It is the world’s first 4WD Plug-in Hybrid SUV, and it’s not just a new SUV, it’s a piece of automotive history.
