The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is a company car tax marvel. Although it’s based on the regular diesel-engined version of the Outlander, this PHEV model is a petrol-electric hybrid, meaning ultra-low CO2 emissions and low benefit-in-kind car tax.

Essentially, it can be driven by the naturally aspirated 2.4-litre petrol engine, by the electric motors powered by batteries alone, or a combination of the two. Those batteries can be charged on the move or the car can be plugged into the mains.

As a result, against conventionally powered rivals such as the Skoda Kodiaq and Nissan X-Trail, the Outlander PHEV will potentially save company car taxpayers thousands of pounds in tax payments over their ownership. And because it can run on pure electric power, many people will be able to charge at home and travel to work and back using no fuel at all.

So, is it worth considering over its conventionally powered rivals? Read on over the next few pages to get our in-depth impressions.
