As the ideal eco-friendly family vehicle, the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV comes with extensive space, technologies, and safety features. In particular, the Outlander PHEV safety features received a Five-Star Overall Safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

According to Mitsubishi, the Outlander PHEV has multiple available active safety features, such as Forward Collision Mitigation with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Warning, Automatic High Beams, Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spot Warning, and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. Perhaps best of all, for the 2020 model year, the PHEV will have these safety technologies on every trim level — which is another reason the NHTSA gave the Outlander PHEV such a high safety rating.

“Our highest priority is keeping our customers safe on the road, and our design and engineering efforts have been validated through NHTSA’s rigorous evaluation process,” said Nate Berg, director of product planning for Mitsubishi North America. “Now for 2020, we can proudly say that Outlander PHEV continues to offer our customers the highest levels of safety, quality and capability in one unique package.”

In addition to its stellar safety features, the PHEV has the Mitsubishi-backed 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, which is great for drivers who want added peace of mind. Whether you want to reduce your carbon footprint or you simply want a safe, family vehicle, the Outlander PHEV is the ideal SUV.

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.

2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Wins Title of “Best Green Winter Vehicle”

Best Green Winter Vehicle

Mitsubishi hit the jackpot with the Outlander PHEV. The award-winning Mitsubishi Outlander already made waves in the SUV segment after its 2016 redesign, and the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV was highly anticipated in the U.S. as the first-ever hybrid SUV at its price point. Now, it’s getting attention with a new accolade, as the New England Motor Press Association’s “Best Green Winter Vehicle.”

Winters aren’t as tough here in North Carolina as they are up in New England, but having a member of the hybrid segment that can handle hazardous weather and slippery road conditions always comes in handy. Features like traction control and all-wheel drive proved themselves capable when tested on New England roads in the wintertime. Plus, with add-ons like heated seats and side mirrors in addition to active driver assist features, as well as de-icers for the front and rear windshields, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV helps take the headache out of navigating slick roads.

The fact that the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV provides hybrid fuel economy in addition to all of its SUV capabilities is what made it the clear winner of the “Best Green Winter Vehicle” award. Even though it’s summertime here in Charlotte, it never hurts to prepare yourself for winter driving later this year.

Outlander PHEV is TMR’s Top of the Best Buys 2015

Best Buy 2015

2015 Mitsubishi Outlander

After “countless hours” of deliberation and evaluation of the cars on its list of the Top Ten Best Buys 2015, The Motor Report has decided the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV was the best of them all.

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!
