Electric cars are normally small (think Prius and Spark) and targeted at students and single adults who make short commuting trips every day. The Outlander PHEV is the world’s first plug-in SUV, and as such brings EV technology in all its glory within reach of family buyers—some of which arguably need the gas savings even more. Kids are not cheap!
The Outlander PHEV is all about versatility. Are you traveling 50 miles or less? You can cover the distance purely on electric power and save tons. More than 50 miles? The 2.0-liter gas engine will kick in when the batteries dry up—or whenever you need it for extra grunt.
And of course, it’s a great family vehicle. Roomy, refined, and quiet as only electrified cars can be. It packs plenty of power to get the whole gang where they need to go, and has the comfort, convenience, and technology to accommodate them on the way.
It’s one of our favorite vehicles at Larry Jay Mitsubishi, and we’re glad The Motor Report agrees!
