2019 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV’s Battery Life Extended

Outlander PHEV’s battery life

There is no denying the growing popularity and allure of driving an electric car. For many people, they want to live a greener lifestyle, while others want to be able to save on fuel costs. Whatever your reason for wanting something electric, it is a good one. As the popularity increases, the technology improves. For the 2019 model year, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV’s battery life is getting even better.

Mitsubishi has announced a 10 percent increase in its battery capacity. This comes from a switch to a 2.4-liter Atkinson Cycle inline four-cylinder engine, compared to a 2.0-liter engine for the 2018 model year. With this new engine and its new 13.8 kWh battery pack, it will offer an electric driving range of 28 miles. The 2018 model has an electric range of 22 miles.

Along with its increased range, the Outlander PHEV is getting a boost in power, too. The electric motor’s output gets a boost of 10 percent to deliver 95 horsepower on its own. This brings the total output to 135 horsepower. The electric mode top speed has increased to 84 mph from just 78 mph last year.

The upgrades are not just performance related. The interior gets some updates, too. There will be new leather seats in the front and more climate control vents for back seat passengers to enjoy.

Get the Best Burgers in the United States at Al’s Burger Shack

best burgers in the United States

From a big, juicy patty to all the toppings that come with it, there’s nothing quite like biting into a delicious burger. Have you ever wondered, though, where you can find the best burgers in the United States? Lucky for us here at Larry Jay Mitsubishi, the best burgers in the nation can be found right in our wonderful state of North Carolina, at Al’s Burger Shack.

Located in Chapel Hill, about two hours away from us here in Charlotte, Al’s was recently awarded the title of Best Burgers in America from Food & Wine magazine and Trip Advisor. It received this award after Trip Advisor analyzed millions of user reviews and rankings. It came out on top mostly due to its signature burger — the Bobo Chili Cheeseburger — which comes toped with chili sauce, coleslaw, onion, yellow mustard, and American cheese.

Beyond its food, Al’s is worth a visit just for the atmosphere alone. Because of its location right in the heart of the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill’s campus, this eatery has a laidback feel that is only enhanced by its shack-like décor and its super-friendly staff.

So, if you’re hankering for a delicious burger and find yourself with your time, we here at Larry Jay’s think it’s a great idea to hop in your Mitsubishi and head to Al’s.
