Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV 2020 Radio Review

Mitsubishi-Outlander-PHEV001Mitsubishi has updated the plug-in hybrid version of their medium size SUV the Outlander. A traditional hybrid uses an engine and regenerative braking to charge the battery – all you do is fill it with fuel at the service station.

But the plug-in hybrid, lets you charge the battery from an external source –you don’t have to plug it in, but you will not get most of the economy benefits unless you do.

A full charged battery means you can do many local trips just on the quiet, efficient ride of battery power. For longer trips the engine will charge the battery or if need be, assist with driving the wheels, so there is no range anxiety. But, to benefit, you have to adjust your behaviour to plug it in regularly.

The Mitsubishi is priced from $48,000 to $56,500 plus on roads
