In 2019, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV won the Green Car Journal’s award for the Green SUV of the Year. For 2020, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is one of the finalists for the Family Green Car of the Year™ award.
The Family Green Car of the Year™ award is bestowed upon a versatile, family-friendly vehicle that boasts eco-friendly attributes. This prestigious award aims to highlight new, environmentally conscious vehicles that feature low emissions and electrified technology.
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV itself combines a 2.0-liter MIVEC engine with twin electric motors, offering a 22-mile all-electric driving range and a whopping combined EPA estimated 74 mpg-e.* This mean the plug-in hybrid offers you the option of a clean commute.
The 2020 Outlander PHEV only uses gasoline when required. When you need a little more power, like driving up a hill, or cruising down the highway, an integrated clutch in the front axle switches to one of the hybrid modes— EV mode, Series Hybrid Mode, and Parallel Hybrid Mode. Each mode uses a different variation of the MIVEC and twin batteries, offering drivers peak performance in all conditions.
Like all of Mitsubishi’s rides, the Outlander PHEV is backed by a 10-year/10,000-mile powertrain warranty. If you’d like to check out the Outlander PHEV, you can take it for a spin at Larry Jay Mitsubishi.

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.
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.
