In the past couple of decades, electric vehicle technology has been steadily on the rise. Not only do these vehicles offer state-of-the-art technology and incredible fuel efficiency to drivers, but they are also environmentally-friendly. They consume far less fuel—or no fuel, with all-electric vehicles—and reduce your CO2 emissions. As hybrid vehicles become more and more advanced, they offer drivers these benefits without making any sacrifices in terms of performance.

Time and time again, Mitsubishi has signaled its commitment to providing and competence in producing eco-friendly vehicles; this past December, Mitsubishi released the Outlander PHEV, which is the world’s first plug-in electric hybrid crossover.

2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

The 2018 Outlander PHEV is quite an eco-friendly wonder to behold. It comes equipped with both a gas engine and two electric motors, with one motor mounted on each the front and rear axle. This is innovative in its own right, as hybrids typically only have one electric motor, and this configuration allows the Outlander PHEV to offer an advanced Super All-Wheel Control system.

The Outlander PHEV offers three drivetrain modes: EV Drive Mode, Series Hybrid Mode, and Parallel Mode. The first mode offers purely electric power, with an all-electric driving range of around 30 miles. This eco-friendly electric power is matched by eco-friendly hybrid power, as the Outlander PHEV offers 74 MPGe, minimizing fuel consumption and optimizing your green lifestyle.

The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV’s excellent fuel economy and green technology make it the perfect vehicle to celebrate Earth Day on April 22. Schedule a test drive at El Cajon Mitsubishi.
