Notes to Editors:
Maximum power is impossible to quote because the petrol engine, front motor, rear motor and generator never run together at maximum performance in real-life driving. The PHEV system always balances between the most appropriate combination of power and drive modes with a view to efficiency and low emissions unless the driver demands otherwise.
The PHEV system is fully automatic, hassle free and totally reliable. However the driver can activate SAVE mode, to preserve as much battery charge as possible, or CHARGE mode which balances the power systems while driving to ensure maximum electric range once inside a zero-emissions zone, for example. Regular charging using a 16A AC 230V system takes approximately four hours while an 80% quick charge using the CHAdeMO system takes around 25 minutes.
The Outlander PHEV offers three Drive Modes, all automatically activated by the PHEV Operating System and all offering permanent electric 4WD:
Pure EV Mode
Up to 84mph / 135 km/h (where legal)
Series Hybrid Mode
Parallel Hybrid Mode
A fully-fuelled/charged Outlander PHEV has sufficient energy capacity to power a regular household for up to 10 days.
One of the attractions of MMC’s PHEV technology is that it allows drivers to use their batteries to supply DC electricity to their home, their community and the power grid. This capability opens the door to a new era of more efficient energy management.
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is already smart grid compatible and Mitsubishi Motors anticipates the gradual introduction of vehicle to home (V2H) schemes over the coming years and are already involved in demonstrator programs in various countries.
