2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEVBaton Rouge, LA
Sold in two leather-clad trim levels, the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is ready for American shoppers. This hybrid EV crossover has been serving European drivers for several years. Now Baton Rouge, LA, area families can enjoy the freedom of emission-free driving and better fuel economy in one affordable package for five.
With 7.3 inches of ground clearance, the 2018 Outlander PHEV differs only slightly from the regular Outlander. You may notice the differences in the grille. Rocker sills wear chrome accents, the aluminum alloy wheels have special black accents. Dual fuel doors are the biggest hint that the PHEV isn’t your regular Louisiana crossover.
The Outlander PHEV blends a gas engine with an electric motor for front wheel driving. A different electric motor provides the torque for the rear wheel axle. The system knows whether to rely on engine or electric power. It switches seamlessly between them, always choosing the best way to provide performance. However, drivers can request EV priority. If they want to be in charge completely, they can specify the EV-only mode, Series Hybrid mode, or Parallel Hybrid mode. Drivers can also determine whether to utilize regenerative braking by using five settings on the dedicated paddle shifters. In battery charging mode, the crossover can recharge the battery up to 80 percent while in motion. For many, this will mean the last miles of their vacation travel can be on electric power just like the beginning of a long trip. When fully charged, EV mode lets you run on electric power for 22 miles. It helps the owner earn 74 mpg-equivalent. Super All-Wheel Control is the utility vehicle’s advanced four-wheel drivetrain. When four-wheel drive is needed, the system acts like an locking center differential splitting torque 50/50 between the two axles. CHAdeMo fast charges take only 25 minutes. Level 2 charges need 3.5 hours, and Level 1 outlets need 13 hours. Shoppers may be surprised to learn that the Outlander PHEV is rated to tow 1,500 pounds. Similar EVs and hybrids tend to be too weak for towing. Best of all, this fuel efficient system kicks out 197 horsepower.
From the cockpit, the driver will be aware of a few differences between this and other Outlanders. There’s a four-spoke steering wheel, a unique center console shifter, and special shift paddles. Otherwise, the Outlander PHEV is much the same as its counterparts in Baton Rouge, LA. Families will find large comfortable seating on two spacious rows. Mitsubishi has provided leather seating surfaces for all PHEV buyers. The cargo hold measures just over 30 cubic feet, giving you plenty of space for gear and luggage.
Seven airbags provide a line of defense against collision. Even better, the Outlander PHEV comes with many electronic systems to regulate stability, traction, brake-force distribution, and brake assistance. The hybrid EV also has a standard lane change assist, blind spot monitor, and rear cross traffic warning. Shoppers may also want the forward collision mitigation system with adaptive cruise control and an autobrake. A lane departure warning and automatic high beams round out its crash avoidance offerings.
The standard dash screen brings you dozens of apps thanks to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functions. HD radio and available SiriusXM provide you with even more entertainment. PHEV-specific information is available on the touchscreen, along with rearview camera images when needed.
