Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Hybrid Car Review

A review of the Mitsubishi Outland PHEV with video from CarWow

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV was first launched in 2014 and has been a best selling hybrid SUV for several years, albeit in a time when there has not been much competition. Mat from Carwow reviews its key features and performance.

The key stats are:

Range: 20-30 miles on battery alone

Cost: from £32,000 including plug-in car grant

The hybrid is ideal for the daily commute where you are travelling between 20 and 30 miles to work, particularly if its possible to charge both at work and at home. The downside is, though that its much less efficient on long journeys particularly on motorways. Its definitely a good car option to consider, but whether its right for you will depend on both your average daily mileage and frequency of longer journeys.

The car comes packed with regenerative braking and all the features you would expect from a good sized family car. The seating arrangements are fine for 5 people but the 2 additional seats available in the diesel version are lost due to the rear engine which is positioned under the rear boot area. It should not be forgotten that this is a 4×4 and so it does have that off road capability that many other PHEVs do not have.

Its small battery means that it will charge quickly and it is of course fully compatible with charge points supplied by EV Camel.
