The flagship electric vehicle in our range is the Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle.
It's the combination of different kinds of motive technology that makes Outlander Plug-In Hybrid remarkable. In a nutshell, a pair of 60kW electric motors drives the front and rear wheels. An efficient 2.0L MIVEC petrol engine puts charge into the battery and drives the wheels when more torque is called for. A 12kWh Lithium-ion battery gives the driver (and 4 very comfortable passengers) an EV range of about 52km.
The three driving modes: Parallel Hybrid, Series Hybrid and, of course, Electric Vehicle Mode are selected automatically depending on the driving conditions and how you're using the vehicle. This enables the astonishing fuel economy of about 1.8L/100km and 42g/km of exhaust emissions (ADR81/02 test procedure).
