2019 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV
The new 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has been designed to meet the new latest emissions regulations and comfortably qualifies for the government plug-in car grant thanks to its WLTP emissions of 46g/km and EV range of 28 miles, this also attracts the lowest possible BIK rate of 13 percent.
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has been updated for 2019. A new 2.4-litre petrol engine produces 135ps (up from 121ps) with greater torque (211Nm vs 190Nm). The rear electric motor output increases to 95ps and the drive battery benefits from a 10% increase in output, the overall capacity is increased to 13.8kWh, all of this results in WLTP combined fuel economy of 139mpg.
To complement the drivetrain enhancements, a number of other changes ensure the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is even more pleasurable to drive. The front and rear shock absorbers have been revised to improve its low-speed ride and a new “Sport Mode” brings with it sharper throttle responsiveness and more grip via the Super All-Wheel Control system. The steering ratio has also been revised and the power steering ECU re-mapped to offer more responsiveness and feel, while larger front brake discs boosts stopping power. There’s also a new Snow mode to improve low-grip launching and cornering abilities on slippery surfaces.
