The Mitsubishi Outlander joined the brand’s lineup when it entered production all the way back in 2001. It’s undergone plenty of changes since then, but one of the most exciting was the addition of a plug-in hybrid version almost a decade ago. Now, we’ve got the 2022 Outlander PHEV available right here in Hayward Mitsubishi in California. This electrified version of the brand’s iconic utility vehicle provides the same great reliability, spaciousness and plethora of features as the regular Outlander, with the added benefits of a couple electric motors. If you think you might be interested in one of your own, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us right here in Hayward, CA.
Unlike conventional engine vehicles, the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is powered by a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine in addition to a pair of electric motors. This makes sure that the vehicle delivers as few emissions as possible and remains as fuel efficient as possible. Thanks to this arrangement, the vehicle is able to achieve an impressive fuel economy rating of up to 74 MPGe. Not only does that mean you’re leaving less of a negative impact on the environment, but you’ll save plenty of money too!
While the plug-in hybrid electric powertrain might be the most interesting aspect of the Outlander PHEV, it has plenty of incredible technologies and other features to take advantage of as well. For example, you’ll be able to connect your phone to the vehicle with the Smartphone Link Display Audio system, which includes things like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto completely integrated into the system. You’ll also benefit from regenerative braking, converting wasted energy into electricity for the powertrain.
By utilizing selectable driving modes, you can enable an EV mode that runs entirely on electricity instead of gasoline. You’ll be able to drive up to 24 miles in the city on a full charge this way, or up to 370 miles overall. You’ll be able to charge up to 80% of the battery over just 25 minutes with DC fast charging, which won’t give you the full range but helps in a pinch. Public charging allows you to get a full charge in less than four hours, or you can charge it yourself in a traditional 120-volt outlet in less than nine hours.
