Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for rapid charging the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.
All about the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV
No longer available
This electric vehicle is no longer in production and not available to buy new. The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV was available from January 2017 until August 2018. Financial data like price, leasing and company car tax were applicable to the final year of availability of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.
A new model of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV (2017) is available: Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV (2018).
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV had a Recommend Retail Price (RRP) of £34,305 and an On The Road Price (OTR) of £34,805. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV was eligible for a Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £2,500. The OTR Price including the PICG for the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is £32,305.
Drivetrain and Performance
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is a plug-in hybrid (PHEV). The maximum power of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is 149 kW (200 hp). The maximum torque is 221 lb-ft. The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is all wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 11.0 seconds. The top speed is 106 mph.
Battery and Charging
The battery of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has a total capacity of 12 kWh. The usable capacity is 9 kWh (estimate). A range of about 18 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.
For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 13 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 27 mi.
Charging is done using a Type 1 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 3.7 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 3 hours. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 4 hours 45 minutes.
Rapid charging is possible through a CHAdeMO connection. The maximum rapid charge power is 22 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 15 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 30 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 13 miles of range.
The combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is about 500 Wh per mile in electric-only mode. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 81 mpg in a traditional petrol car.
The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 690 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 330 Wh per mile.
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has a combined (electric and fuel) range of about 385 mi, of which about 18 of fully electric range. Please note that, even when driving in full-electric mode, the internal combustion engine may kick in under high loads.
When the battery is empty or 'hold charge' mode is engaged, the fuel consumption is about 38 mpg on the combined (motorway and city) cycle. When starting off with a full battery and applying a moderate driving style, no fuel is consumed over a 15 mile trip and fuel consumption is about 74 mpg over a 30 mile trip and 50 mpg over a 60 mile trip.
The combined average consumption of petrol of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV will therefor depend on the average trip distance and whether the car is charged before each trip. Climate, driving style and route will have a further impact on the actual fuel consumption. The official figures in accordance with the NEDC driving cycle for fuel consumption of 166 mpg and a range of 519 mi are irrelevant in practice.
While driving in full-electric mode, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV will not emit any CO2. When the battery is empty, or if the engine load is high, the internal combustion engine will be used. As fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are directly proportional, the average CO2 emssions of a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV will depend greatly on several key factors that determine fuel consumption. Note: CO2 emissions are calculated per kilometre.
When driving using only the petrol engine, CO2 emissions will be around 176 grams of CO2 per kilometre on the combined (motorway and city) cycle. However, if the average trip distance is relatively short and the car is charged between trips, the average CO2 emissions will be reduced significantly.
CO2 Emissions will drop to 0 g/km on a 15 mile trip, 89 g/km on a 30 mile trip and 134 g/km on a 60 mile trip. This only includes tailpipe CO2 emissions. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels. The offical figures in accordance with the NEDC driving cycle for CO2 emissions of 41 g/km are for comparison of vehicles only and have no relevance in practice.
The model shown on this page is the successor of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, which was available from September 2015 until January 2017.
The previous model was £500 less expensive, had similar range, same acceleration and was 19% more energy efficient.
