While most of us want to drive fuel-efficient cars, they often come with a big price premium, especially fuel-efficient crossovers. That isn’t the case with the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.
The Outlander PHEV is an affordable plug-in hybrid that costs a lot less than its luxury hybrid counterparts, even before any tax incentives are considered. Even with its low cost, the Outlander PHEV comes well-equipped with features including leather seating, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, Bluetooth® connectivity, and heated front seats.
It is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and a pair of 60-kilowatt electric motors. Combined, the hybrid powertrain has an output of 197 horsepower. When fully charged, Mitsubishi says the Outlander PHEV has an electric driving range of 22 miles. Recharging can be done in a variety of ways, but when using DC fast-charging, you can get up to an 80% charge in less than half an hour.
The Outlander PHEV also comes standard with Super All-Wheel Control for superior handling in all road conditions. Inside, the cabin offers seating for five passengers with plenty of room for cargo in the rear.
Plug-in hybrid SUVs have become all the rage in recent years with luxury automakers bringing out their premium models one after another. Unfortunately, nearly all of those SUVs, like the BMW X5 and Porsche Cayenne, are well out of the price range of the average consumer. Enter the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-In Hybrid.
Starting well under the price of those premium models, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV brings quality and efficiency at an affordable price. Not only does it have a much lower starting price, it’s also eligible for a hefty federal tax credit, plus whatever your state may offer.
Now that we’ve covered just how affordable the new Outlander PHEV is, let’s talk specifications.
The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV features two full-time electric motors paired with a four-cylinder gasoline engine. A 12 kWh lithium-ion battery pack stores the system’s power. The vehicle recharges using regenerative braking technology, and owners can plug it in at home for overnight charging.
In addition to generating around 197 horsepower, the hybrid powertrain features six regenerative braking modes, an electric-only mode, and Battery Save mode.
Designed for the average driver, the Outlander PHEV brings a standard seven-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility, and much more.
One simple way to help make things easier for car shoppers is vehicle awards. When automotive experts give out awards to certain makes and models, it can help shoppers quickly find the best vehicles in the segment. The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport for the second year in a row has won the Yankee Value Award from the New England Motor Press Association (NEMPA).
The Yankee Value Award is given to the vehicle that represents the hardy New England spirt. In addition, a vehicle must present a strong case for its “value proposition.” This is true for the Outlander Sport. It comes at an affordable price while still delivering an exceptional 10-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty along with a variety of features and eye-catching styling.
“Outlander Sport continues to prove why it’s our sales leader,” said Don Swearingen, executive vice president and chief operating officer, MMNA. “Reliability, quality, competitive pricing and cost of ownership are at the core of Outlander Sport; to be recognized for providing exemplary value in such a competitive CUV segment proves Mitsubishi is providing consumers with what they not only want, but need.”

For a few years now, Mitsubishi has been marketing a plug-in hybrid EV version of its popular Outlander family in other countries, such as the United Kingdom, but the variant never made its debut on North American soil. However, following the introduction of the Outlander’s next generation sometime after 2017, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV will finally be available in the US.
The decision accompanies Mitsubishi Motors’ announcement that the company has reevaluated its plans and has chosen to more aggressively target the SUV segment. The current generation of the Outlander PHEV could arrive in the US as early as next May. In addition, the automaker expects to have released three new SUVs to the lineup by 2020, including a new unnamed crossover, the next installment of the Outlander, and a new Outlander Sport. Mitsubishi says all three vehicles will offer optional hybrid powertrains, in addition to the traditional gas setup.
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has been around for four years now, but the company is just now bringing the plug-in hybrid model to the American market. However, the decision makes sense now that Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. has turned their sights on the SUV market in an attempt to focus on their strengths.

To increase interest in the brand-new crossover’s debut, which is set for the show on April 2, Mitsubishi has released 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander teaser images.
The teaser images highlight a variety of changes for the popular crossover SUV. These changes include a more modern design for the front fascia, increasing the Outlander’s sophisticated appeal. It also looks as if the 2016 Outlander will feature a brand-new rear end, reflecting the design of the Outlander PHEV Concept-S, which debuted last year at the 2014 Paris Motor Show.

If you caught the latest Mitsubishi Super Bowl ad, you might’ve been wondering: are they really going to live tweet a pizza delivery driver? Believe it or not, Mitsubishi actually did, just to prove that it has one of America’s safest CUVs.
According to Mitsubishi, the Mitsubishi Outlander safety features are some of the best on the market, one of the reasons it was an IIHS Top Safety Pick +. Equipped with Forward Collision Mitigation and other advanced technologies, avoiding accidents is easier than ever.
Because of the terrible conditions in Boston, Mitsubishi was concerned about the hard-working pizza drivers, especially during the big game. “During the biggest sporting event of the year, nobody has more to lose than one man – not the players, not the coaches, not even the advertisers spending millions and millions of dollars,” read Mitsubishi’s ad. “We’re talking about the pizza guy.”
It might seem odd at first, but Mitsubishi makes a good point. Not only will people want their pizzas as quick as possible, but people rarely stop to think about the real expense of ordering food in bad weather conditions. By giving one lucky driver the new Mitsubishi Outlander, he was as safe as possible during the big game.
Test drive a 2015 Outlander here at Larry Jay Mitsubishi to check out the safety features first hand.
