2015 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV - Drive Green
Miles: 79,900
Price: £14,995

This 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is the first of it’s kind on the Drive Green forecourt. We had it come in as a PX against a Tesla Model S and due to it’s EV credentials, we decided to put it out on sale.

It has a 12kWh Battery, which equates to around 22 miles of range in the real world.

The petrol engine will engage in situations where you require more power, the battery is low and you want it charged or if you decide to use it as a range extender, by clicking ‘save battery’. This will effectively run the petrol engine to generate electricity, but not to drive the car.

The Outlander has all the toys and gadgets you’d expect from an AWD SUV. It has the option to engage 4-Wheel drive and this can be powered by the electric motors only if you’d rather not consume any petrol.

FWIW at speeds above 40mph, the ICE will normally drive the front wheels directly using what is effectively a "top gear" if the engine starts, thus bypassing the electric motors.

Hi there,

I tend to found that the ICE will only kick in at around 75 mph and also charge the electric motors.

I've managed to get the ICE engine to stay off by controlling the accelerator at speeds above 50mph.

Not sure why that may be, could it be a different model car?

Best wishes
Chris
