The New Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is Quickly Becoming a Best Seller in the Plug-In Hybrid Crossover Segment

What's that mean for Wantagh, NY drivers? In short, it means a mid-size CUV, and the only PHEV crossover in its class, ready for any Long Island road trip. But we wouldn't take our word as a Mitsubishi dealer for it alone. Take that of the 100,000 units sold in Europe, which made the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV the best-selling plug-in hybrid in the Netherlands and Scandinavia from 2015 through 2017, according to JATO Dynamics Global PHEV sales figures. Now entering the U.S. market, the new Outlander PHEV is already making an impact.

Executive vice president and chief operating officer of MMNA, Don Swearingen, perhaps put it best. The latest Mitsubishi hybrid is the "best of both worlds – EV efficiency and SUV capabilities." We at Wantagh Mitsubishi can certainly already see it. 2018 Outlander PHEV is, for one, highly economical with fuel, and resultantly eco-conscious, with low CO2 emissions. To wit, you can count on up to an EPA-estimated 310 miles of driving range, fuel economy up to 74 combined mpge, and the ability to travel up to 22 miles solely using electric power. Of course, that's all possible thanks to standard DC Fast Charging capability, and the new Outlander is the only PHEV on the market to feature it according to the JATO Dynamics Limited Car Specifications USA Database as of November 2017. With it, you can charge to up to 80 percent of the electric battery's capacity in as little as 25 minutes, with level 1 and 2 charging support for everyday electric driving.

Factor in that the SUV's both capable and reliable, with a proprietary Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) all-wheel drive system. Consider also that it's capacious for the long haul, with a 1,500-pound max towing capacity and more than 77 cubic feet for cargo with 60/40 split-folding rear seating folded. When it all comes together, it's plain to see what's propelling the Mitsubishi SUV to success.
