The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV first joined the Mitsubishi lineup back in 2013. Ever since, the hybrid Outlander variant has been garnering a lot of praise, as well as a healthy amount of sales.
While the Outlander PHEV made its debut in the Japanese market, it has since made its way to more than 50 other countries. The model is especially popular in Europe, where it has been the best-selling plug-in hybrid for the past four years.
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV’s success has expanded well beyond the European market. In December 2018, the Outlander PHEV became the best-selling plug-in hybrid in the world.

Powering the Outlander PHEV is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, which comes paired with a 60kW Twin AC synchronous permanent magnetic motor. Working in tandem, these two powertrain components produce 197 horsepower and 281 lb-ft of torque.
However, the most notable benefits of this powertrain setup is the efficiency it creates for the Outlander PHEV. The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV achieves a fuel economy of 74 MPGe and a total driving range of 310 miles.
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is just a preview of what Mitsubishi has in store for future hybrid additions to its lineup. If those proposed vehicles are anywhere near as successful as the Outlander PHEV, Mitsubishi and its customers will have a lot to look forward to.
