Mitsubishi are taking a shot for the top SUV eco title with the 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, but does it measure up?
It’s fair to say that a hybrid SUV isn’t what you’d regularly see in this bracket, but what Mitsubishi have done here is create a part electric vehicle that could potentially be seen plowing its way off road as well as scooting about the town centre. The Plugin Hybrid Electric Vehicle (or PHEV for short) commands 200bhp from two power sources – dual electric motors and a 2.0ltr petrol engine which are designed in such a way as to run on pure electric for about 30 miles before it runs out and the petrol engine kicks in. Also after the battery breaths its last, it will charge the batteries back up in the background while on petrol mode. Handy!
