The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV offers a clean and fully electric range of up to 60 kilometres, the ease of refuelling and convenience of a petrol engine, unique styling and three rows of seats.

“We feel that the award winning Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is the perfect first step in cleaner motoring, without any of the drawbacks of a fully electric vehicle, while still maintaining the legendary Mitsubishi reliability, styling and capability,” says Jeffrey Allison, General Manager: Marketing at Mitsubishi Motors South Africa (MMSA).

The Outlander combines the efficiency of an electric vehicle with the utility of a crossover and the surefootedness that the standard Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) all-wheel drive system offers. This system utilises the PHEV’s unique twin electric motor configuration to allow for maximum performance and superior traction and safety across all road conditions.

“The Outlander brings together a modern design, the best in all-wheel drive technologies and convenient seating arrangement for seven passengers in three rows and we believe that this model range will be a fitting flagship when it is launched locally in 2023,” concludes Allison.
