Introduction

What Car? says...

While not exactly being a household name in the UK, Mitsubishi has a far higher profile in the field of plug-in hybrids; the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV consistently ranks as Britain’s best-selling plug-in hybrid. And, with SUV looks and the practicality to back them up, its popularity is justified.

Key to the PHEV’s appeal though, is the low company car tax it attracts, thanks to its clever hybrid system which produces lower CO2 emissions than the conventional petrol-powered Outlander emits. The PHEV can be driven by its naturally aspirated 2.4-litre petrol engine, by its electric motors and batteries alone, or by a combination of the two. Those batteries can be charged on the move by the petrol engine, or the car can be plugged into the mains to charge overnight.
