New Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV for Sale in Pikeville, Kentucky

The new 2024 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV: More power, more range

The latest version of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV comes into the latest model year with a higher-capacity battery and an estimated EV range that's been nudged up to 38 miles. That puts the Outlander plug-in hybrid ahead of similar PHEV models from Ford, Kia, Hyundai and Subaru leaving it trailing only the Toyota RAV4 Prime. Here's an overview of what you can expect when you take a look at the new Mitsubishi Outlander plug-in hybrid at Walters Mazda Mitsubishi in Pikeville KY.

A look at the powertrain setup

The new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV comes with the same powertrain as before. A four-cylinder engine sends power to the front wheels and turns a generator that recharges the battery. Another front motor sends power to the wheels as a series hybrid or powers the front wheels with an e-motor based on whichever scenario delivers the best energy efficiency as you drive around Prestonsburg or Williamson, KY.

The two front motor generators act like a continuously variable automatic transmission, with one powering the wheels and the other acting like a generator to recharge the battery. A third electric motor creates all-wheel drive by powering the rear axle and sending torque to the front or the rear as needed.

Outlander PHEV Horsepower and range

The two electric motors create a lot more power than the predecessor, elevating from the previous 175 horsepower. The engine and the motors combine to create 248 horsepower and a maximum of 332 pound-feet of torque. The lithium-ion battery pack increases its capacity to 20 kilowatt hours. That results in a higher range of 38 miles compared to the previous model that could last only for 24 miles on a single charge.

Outlander PHEV Charging Time

Even with the new bigger battery, the onboard charger continues to be rated at just 3.3 kilowatts. As a result, it will take about 6.5 hours to reach a 100% recharge. It will require more than half an hour to do a fast charge to 80% capacity and compatible DC charging stations may be difficult to find. That's why it's important for Elkhorn City, KY and Logan WV buyers to investigate that issue before moving ahead with the purchase of a new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.

The driving experience

This plug-in hybrid is relatively smooth and fast when you don't try to accelerate much beyond 50 mph. The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV offers drivers around Whitesburg, KY a choice of three driving modes, Normal, Eco and Power, along with four traction options: Tarmac, Gravel, Show or Mud. There are also four powertrain settings available: Normal or hybrid, EV-only, Save, to preserve battery range and Charge, a mode that uses the internal combustion engine to recharge the battery. If it sounds complicated, you might want to wait until plug-in hybrids have devloped closer to the much simpler experience of a gasoline-powered vehicle.

Convenience and technology features

The Mitsubishi Outlander plug-in hybrid is the top end of the Outlander lineup and comes as a standard seven-seat vehicle. The third row is suitable only for small children on short trips but it does fold flat to create extra cargo space and you can slide and recline the second row. A 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster comes standard and the graphics are large and clear. As you would expect with any new vehicle, the Outlander PHEV offers a long list of advanced safety features.
