Mitsubishi says this gives the Outlander PHEV an all-electric driving array of 38 miles. When put together with the 14.8-gallon gas tank, it can get 64 MPGe and a blended 420 miles of driving variety. Really spectacular.

The Outlander PHEV can assist rapid charging as very well. Mitsubishi suggests with the DC quick charger, the Outlander PHEV can get to 80-p.c charge in as tiny as 38 minutes. Mitsubishi tends to make the assert that the Outlander PHEV is the only non luxurious hybrid that presents speedy charging. This is a very huge claim to make. But provided that most data on-line both lists only the fastest charging EVs or a manual to charging EVs and PHEvs, it was difficult to pin down whether or not or not this was genuine.
