MITSUBISHI’S Outlander PHEV has undergone more updates than your smartphone. The Japanese firm has just rolled out another batch of changes for its market leading PHEV.
A new set of trim levels are the most noticeable alterations on paper, with the previous alpha-numeric system replaced by six new names: Verve, Design, Dynamic, Dynamic Safety, Exceed and Exceed Safety.
Equipment has been improved across the board, and Mitsubishi has added a new, larger eight-inch infotainment system, with smartphone integration and TomTom navigation. Prices start at £35,455 for the UK’s most popular plug-in hybrid, and the efficient powertrain remains the same, having been recently improved.
This sees a 2.4 litre petrol engine work with an electric motor for an official fuel economy rating of 139.7mpg, and an electric range of 28 miles on a charge. Sub-£40,000 pricing and low CO2 figures – alongside high economy scores – means the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV offers very low running costs, particularly for business users.
