Eco-Friendly and Adventure Focused: 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV
The last several years have seen many changes to the face of automotive engineering, but few are as dramatic or important as the introduction of electric vehicle design. Mitsubishi, the premier Japanese manufacturer, stands at the forefront of this revolution with the revelation of the 2018 Outlander PHEV.
Similar in appearance and cost to its gas-powered twin, the Outlander PHEV isn’t immediately recognizable as a technological marvel. However, beneath the hood lies a four-cylinder gas engine linked to electric hybrid components, distributing drive power between its gas engine and electric motor. Producing a respectable 197 horsepower, the Outlander’s chief feature is its plug-in rechargeability. On electric power alone it can travel approximately 22 miles on a full charge and is capable of recharging from a standard 120-volt socket, as well as 240-volt or a DC fast-charger. With this revolutionary hybrid design, the 2018 Outlander presents drivers with a whole array of new options.
In addition to its novel engine design, the Outlander sports additional features that would be a welcome addition to any SUV. A quiet and comfortable cabin is replete with features one would expect from a luxury vehicle, including 7-inch touchscreen display that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as an available nine-speaker audio system. The tech features don’t end with simple entertainment, with a full safety suite that includes available blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alerts, forward collision alert, adaptive cruise control, and automatic braking. Through and through, the Mitsubishi Outlander is a high-tech masterpiece.
Merging the efficiency of electric with the power of combustion, the 2018 Outlander PHEV combines the best of both worlds to deliver an outstanding experience.
