EV owners to benefit from rule change -

Posted on August 9, 2017 by Autofile
Electric Vehicle (EV) owners should benefit from a rule change where they will be exempt from road user charges and can possibly use bus and high occupancy vehicles lanes, when driving their EV.

2019 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV


New & Improved Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

The Mitsubishi Outlander range, and driving in general, has just taken a huge leap forward. It’s the clever combination of the all-electric i-Miev, the rally–honoured 4WD Lancer Evolution and the legendary off-road ability of the Pajero. Plug-In Hybrid delivers the same exceptional comfort, refinement and safety as other Outlanders, but with unprecedented economy and emissions. For technology, innovation and any other way you look at it, it’s just better.

Know your Plug-In Hybrid

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.

Mitsubishi Motors has bought together its most advanced engineering and technological resources to create a superior and environmentally friendly vehicle specifically designed for New Zealand life. There’s no more practical and comfortable way to drastically reduce your fuel bills without compromising on range, luxury, safety, dependability or the go-wherever-you-want-want ease of an SUV.

Get behind the wheel of a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Hybrid today and experience the next level of driving.
Go Further For Less
The new Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-in Hybrid SUV brings you fuel efficiency like you’ve never experienced before in an SUV.

Thanks to the combination of a highly efficient 2.0L MIVEC petrol engine, two high output 60kW twin front and rear motors and a high capacity 12kW battery, you’ll clock up just 1.7L/100km.*

So not only is this great on the pocket, it’s also great on the environment, as you’ll only produce 42g/km* of emissions.

*DISCLAIMER: The fuel economy figure gives you an indication of the fuel consumption based on international rolling road test-lab drive cycle testing - UN ECE R101 (European NEDC), ADR (Australia), and JC08 (Japan). These tests are designed to test fuel consumption in lab conditions to make comparisons easier. Actual fuel economy will depend on a wide range of factors including your driving style and habits, speed and distance travelled, vehicle load, tyre pressure and level of maintenance.

Three Energy Sources
Your Plug-In Hybrid has a high-capacity battery located under the floor, which lowers the centre of gravity to reduce body roll and improve safety without compromise on SUV functionality. Coupled with front and rear motors the Electric Vehicle cruising range is greatly extended and contributes to responsive 4WD performance and instant torque. The 2.0L engine is designed to generate electricity and act in perfect harmony for peaceful motoring.

Driving Modes

Three Automatic Selected Drive Modes Ensure Optimal Performance
Depending on driving conditions and battery level, Plug-In Hybrid’s powertrain automatically selects the optimum drive mode. All you have to do is enjoy the fuel-efficient motoring and outstanding performance.
mitsubishi outlander hybrid series mode
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.
Mitsubishi outlander phev hybrid ev mode
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.
mitsubishi outlander parallel mode
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

Super-All Wheel Control
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.
4WD Lock
Switching to 4WD lock mode distributes torque and limits wheel spin to improve traction and straight line stability on snow, dirt and other slippery road surfaces.

Flexibility Throughout

Whatever 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 Quietness

The 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 Safety

Outlander 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 Mitigation

Radar 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 Control

Now, 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 Beam

Sensors 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 Systems

Warning 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 Airbags

Whichever 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 Lights

For 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 Capabilities

17MY 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:
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).

Eco Mode

The Eco Mode switch adjusts the throttle response and air conditioning output to improve fuel economy.

Regenerative Braking

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.



Smartphone Link Display:

The hugely popular and technology leading SDA audio is standard on all models.
This system integrates communication, music and map apps from your compatible Smartphone.

Simply click in the USB cable and phone calls, navigation, music and messages are right there on the built-in display screen. Voice command lets you keep your focus on the road, and maps are automatically updated from your phone. You can also play music and make calls via Bluetooth™

Smartphone App


Electric Vehicle Remote System

For convenience, use your smartphone to remotely control the charger timer, reschedule charging for late at night when electricity fees are low, monitor the remaining charge time and more. The Mitsubishi Remote Control app also enables immediate activation of the electric heater and air conditioning.

Outlander Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle Reviews:

John McCrystal and family trial an electric car
Reported for AA Directions Autumn 2016 issue

"It’s when we get home and back into our daily round that the PHEV concept really proves itself to me: Monday, drop kids to school because it’s raining (1.5km), collect them, drive to gym, do shopping (41km); Tuesday, deliver Hugh to playdate and collect (3km); Wednesday, deliver Nell to playdate and collect (5km); Thursday, kids’ tennis, cricket, then my own night class over in Petone (38km); Saturday, cricket for Hugh, playdate for Nell (26km); Sunday, hockey for me (17km). That’s 131.5km for the week, an average of 19km per day  – a little less than the daily average of 28km for the average urban Kiwi driver. In all that time, because I was able to charge the car between trips, I didn’t use a drop of petrol. And since the car uses only around 10 kW/h to recharge from zero, it only cost about $3.00 for the whole week’s running around."
