New Outlander PHEV range for Irish Customers


The new Outlander Plug-In Hybrid EV 4WD SUV to reach Irish customers next month comes with a high level of technology for all round safety, EV technology, driver focused technology as well as enhanced exterior design and high quality, refined interior. Having achieved a 5-Star NCAP rating the Outlander PHEV incorporates top safety equipment including seven airbags (front, side and curtain) and three ISO-FIX child seat anchors, ABS with EBD and Brake Assist, Active Stability and Traction Control. It also features Mitsubishi’s renowned Super All Wheel Control (S-AWC) with NORMAL, SNOW, LOCK and SPORT Mode, all underpinned by Mitsubishi’s RISE (Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution) body.

The Instyle and S-Edition models are equipped with Forward Collision Mitigation System (providing a visible and audible warning if a collision risk has been identified, escalating to autonomous braking if a high risk of collision has been determined), Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning and Automatic High Beams. Adding to this level of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) the S-Edition also includes Blind Spot Warning (BSW) with Lane Change Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Ultrasonic Misacceleration System (UMS) (in case the driver mistakenly presses the accelerator when stationary or driving at low speeds). The PHEV Operating System on all specifications includes EV Priority Mode that allows the driver to run the PHEV on electric mode only for up to 45km, Battery Save Mode and Battery Charge Modes. All models are supplied with Mode 2 and Mode 3 charging cables for home and public charging, as well as Quick charger ports. The battery can be charged for as little as €1.38 The Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System (AVAS) acts to warn pedestrians of the approaching vehicle below 35 km/h when in silent EV Mode, i.e. no engine noise.
