Together with the strong introduction of the new 2016 Outlander PHEV in UK, Mitsubishi released a set of 'How To' videos.

Electric range is estimated by Mitsubishi at 52 km (32 miles) on its 12 kWh battery.

Of note:  Doing the conversion math on theOutlander PHEVs dimension and e-drivetrain look for ~23-25 miles of range on the EPA scale when it arrives in May in the US

With the Plug-In Car Grant (35% off the cost of a car, up to a maximum of £5,000) and Plug-In Van Grant (20% off the cost of a van, up to a maximum of £8,000) on top of the tax benefit in kind - 5% instead 25%, as well as no congestion charge in central London and no road tax, the near-term future of Outlander PHEV is very bright.

The new version has dedicated smartphone App, so users can easily set off-peak charging or turn on climate control.
