The Mitsubishi New Outlander has been developed from the onset to have the ability to run using both plug-in hybrid EV power and traditional internal combustion engine power.
While many manufacturers develop cars to run on either traditional power or electric power, few develop an automobile that can go either way.
The PHEV version of Mitsubishi's SUV is impressive in that it has three internal motors; two electric and one petrol. This allows drivers to operate the vehicle in three different modes and provides the option of using partially electric or fully electric power depending on the driving conditions and the requirements of the driver.
This option provides drivers with an impressive driving distance (approximately 500 miles before needing a re-charge) while still keeping the vehicle's carbon emissions on the low end of the scale.
