The Mitsubishi Outlander petrol and diesel range already has exceptional economy figures, the Outlander Plug-In Hybrid is in a class beyond all others. It combines environmental performance and the quietness of an electric vehicle, while delivering the utility and performance associated with SUV’s. You also enjoy the range of a conventional internal combustion engine powered vehicle.

EV Drive Mode:
Electric Power Only
Electric Vehicle Drive Mode is an all-electric mode in which the front and rear motors drive the vehicle using only electricity from the battery. With zero on-road petrol consumption and zero CO2 emissions, you can enjoy quiet and exceptionally eco-friendly performance.
Series Hybrid Mode:
Electric Power + Engine Assistance
In Series Hybrid Mode the petrol engine operates as a generator, supplying electricity to the electric motors as required. The system switches to this mode when the remaining charge in the battery falls below a predetermined level and when additional power is required, such as accelerating to pass a vehicle or for driving up a steep incline.
Parallel Hybrid Mode
Engine Power + Motor Assistance
In Parallel Hybrid Mode the petrol engine provides most of the motive power, assisted by the electric motors as required. The system switches to this mode for higher-speed driving where the petrol engine operates at peak efficiency.
Switching modes to match driving conditions
Utilizing 4WD technology forged by the Lancer Evolution, the S-AWC regulates the brakes and distributes power to the front and rear wheels, as well as the left and right wheels, to improve driving stability and handling precision in the most challenging terrain.
Forward Collision Mitigation
Adaptive Cruise Control
Flexibility ThroughoutWhatever combination of passengers and luggage you need to carry, Outlander Plug-In Hybrid can accommodate, thanks to the 60:40 split rear seats. If you need more cargo space, simply fold flat the rear seats for an impressive 1,685mm of very usable room.
New Levels of QuietnessThe Outlander Plug-In Hybrid Cabin is exceptionally quiet, thanks to 4mm soundproof glass, new flat wiper blades that cut down on wind noise and damping materials covering more of the under floor. Additional sound absorbing and insulating materials in the engine compartment, wheel housing and other key areas reduce noise and increase the feeling of refinement.
The Same Great SafetyOutlander Plug-In Hybrid has all the same levels of safety as its petrol and diesel counterparts, including the impressive Mitsubishi-Assist which ensures maximum safety in many driving scenarios.
Forward Collision MitigationRadar is used to identify obstructions ahead and warn of a potential collision. If the risk remains, this system applies the brakes to mitigate collision (XLS & VRX). Pedestrian Detection on VRX model.
Adaptive Cruise ControlNow, when the vehicle in front of alters its speed, so does your cruise control. A radar mounted in the grille matches Outlander Plug-In Hybrid’s cruise control speed to whatever you’re following, with appropriate adjustments of brake or accelerator. (XLS & VRX)
Lane Departure Warning (All Models)Camera monitors the white lines and alerts the driver if they are drifting out of their lane.
Auto High BeamSensors detect if there are no vehicles in front of approaching and automatically turns on the high beam headlights.
Blind Spot Warning System (VRX model)Blind spot detector on side mirrors. The blind spot monitor is a vehicle-based sensor device that detects other vehicles located to the driver's side and rear.
Rear Cross Traffic Alert (VRX Model)Rear Cross-Traffic Alert can help you when backing out from a parking space. When your vehicle is in reverse the system is designed to detect vehicles approaching from the right or left rear of the vehicle.
Acoustic Vehicle Alerting SystemsWarning tone function alerts pedestrians near the vehicle when driving with the engine off (because the vehicle runs so quietly). The alarm has a different pitch depending on the vehicle speed.
7 AirbagsWhichever angle an impact is encountered, there’s no airbag to counter its effects. Driver and passenger-side SRS airbags, side and curtain SRS airbags, and a driver-side SRS kneebag all come as standard and protect occupants throughout the vehicle.
Daytime Running LightsFor added safety and improved visibility, Outlander features daytime running lights. The headlights are now LED, which use less energy and increase the vehicle’s overall efficiency.
Just Plug-In And Switch On
NEW EV Priority Mode:EV Priority mode is a new function that stops the vehicle from starting the petrol engine and prioritizes EV drive mode withine certain parameters. This allows the user to drive on full electric power without unwillingly using the petrol engine. EV Priority mode is activated via a switch on the centre console.
DC Fast Charging Capabilities17MY Outlander PHEV is now capable of DC Fast Charging with CHADeMO charging stations.
What is DC Fast Charging?
It is the process where the AC mains power is converted to DC power and supplied via special charging devices at very high currents. This is directly coupled to the vehicles traction battery battery and can charger the battery to 80% charge very quickly. Fast chargers are not designed to charge the battery fully to 100% charge and come with a tethered cable at the charge station.
What is CHADeMO
CHADeMO is a DC fast charging system and charging protocol that is used in New Zealand fast charging sites. CHADeMO has a unique charging socket.
Charging your Outlander Plug-In Hybrid could not be easier.
Charging cable and plug into a standard internal household outlet (10AMP, 230V)
How Fast Is DC Fast Charging
DC Fast Charging from 0 to 80% battery charge takes approximately 20-25 minutes (varies by charger specification, temperature, etc) to be confirmed upon testing in NZ. In contrast, regular charging from a standard household outlet (10amp, 230V) takes approximately 6.5 hours for a full charge.
Where can you DC Fast Charge?
DC Fast chargers can be found all across NZ. These charge sites are rapidly being deployed, with ChargeNET NZ installing new sites at a rate of one every two weeks. See the link below for a map of charging stations: www.plugshare.com
How much do Fast Chargers cost to use?
Costs vary from site to site. ChargeNet NZ is the leading provider of DC Fast Charge charging stations with a nationwide network comprising of nearly 100 sites under deployment. ChargeNet's current rates are 25c/minute + 25c/kWh.
Battery Save Mode
Battery Save Mode reduces battery power usage. Drivers can manually select Hybrid Vehicle drive mode to preserve remaining drive battery power. Saving battery power during driving allows longer Electric Vehicle driving when needed (such as in quiet residential neighbourhoods).
The Eco Mode switch adjusts the throttle response and air conditioning output to improve fuel economy.
Regenerative breaking charges the battery when the driver releases the accelerator and while the brake pedal is being pressed. The driver can control the degree of regenerative breaking via selector lever and paddle selector.
