2017 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

Here is an extensive presentation and review of the refreshed Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV in Europe. Probably one of the best we have seen of the latest plug-in Outlander to date.

Editor’s note:  If you are a reader from the US or Canada, we suggest not watching this video, aas the Outlander PHEV has been delayed for the 6th (or 7th) time since its initial promised arrival date of January of 2014. New target? Summer 2017.

Autogefühl focused on the exterior, interior, powertrain, and of course the driving experience of the Outlander PHEV -with lots of tests in various modes.

It is a “must-watch” video for all those considering the plug-in hybrid SUV from Mitsubishi.

12 kWh of batteries translates to up to 32 mile/52 km NEDC and expected 22 miles/35 km on the EPA scale.

Hat tip to offib!

It’s sad that this review goes on for 45 minutes but only contains about 5 minutes of useful information. One thing I found fascinating was seeing how the European charging stations work (or loading stations, as he calls them) I knew that they had to carry their own cables.. Actually, that’s something I would actually prefer, rather than the way we do it over here. But anyway, it appeared the Outlander had a regular J1772 port on the side. I would have assumed it would have used a Mennekes connector too.

Many inner city charging stations is just a pole with a socket on either side and a touchless cardreader on top. The cardreader opens a flap/door covering the socket.
This solution is cheap to install, and fairly tamper/vandal proof.
Downside is bring your own cable, and you have to pre-register and receive a card (or call and give your creditcard info over the phone).

Not forgetting the Outlander has a CHAdeMO rapid charger port as well as the T1 (J1772) one. Ecotricity, the provider of the largest CHAdeMO network in the UK – and (the biggest?) supplier of renewable electricity – with at least one CHAdeMO at very nearly every one of the 110-odd motorway service areas in the UK, recently introduced a £6 charge to use the CHAdeMOs when up till then they had been free to use. This has put a huge number of Outlander (they are *very* popular here) drivers’ noses out of joint as they can’t get free travel anymore. I know – 30 miles? Was it really worth it? Apparently so as it was beginning to get very serious as they (and BMW i3 hybrids) were blocking all the CHAdeMOs from *real* EVs – who don’t have the option of just reverting back to petrol/diesel to continue their journey.

Now, the Ecotricty bays are almost all back to being almost permanently empty.

Almost all the CHAdeMO rapid chargers here now use a smart phone app for access.

Also worth noting that if you are an Ecotricity customer, you get 50 or so CHAdeMO charges free per annum.

Damn! I forgot about this ages ago!!

I look forward to seeing this EV in the US when it is released in 2024.

I think you may have accidentally transposed some numbers, or maybe it was auto spell-check. But I fixed it:

“I look forward to seeing this EV in the US when it is released in 2042.”
