Drivetrain, Range, and Charging of 2023 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV
The PHEV system in the Outlander was extensively updated and revised, allowing the vehicle to operate in EV mode more frequently and with greater EV driving range. The new system is made up of five major components:
- A 2.4-liter DOHC gasoline engine produces 132 horsepower and 144 pound-feet of torque, while a combined gas/electric power output of 248 horsepower and an impressive 332 pound-feet of torque is produced.
- A 114 horsepower front motor
- A 134 horsepower rear engine
- A generator to power the drive battery
- Increased drive battery capacity
The new Outlander PHEV minimises starting the internal combustion engine in as many scenarios as possible by increasing the output of the front and rear motors and drive battery by around 40%. This includes hard acceleration while merging and passing on the expressway, as well as other city or suburban driving situations. The switch to a larger capacity Drive battery with a total capacity of 20 kWh (up from 13.8 kWh in the previous model) has increased the equivalent all-electric range to 38 miles, providing enough driving range even when using high-draw functions like the air conditioner.
The Outlander’s gas tank capacity has also been increased, giving it a total combined range of 420 miles. MPG figures are 25 city, 27 highway, and 26 combined. The ICE/EV rating of the vehicle is 64 MPGe.
Normal home charging takes 6.5 hours on a 240-volt circuit. Quick charging (105 amps or higher) charges the battery to 80% in about 38 minutes. Charging with the built-in generator takes about 94 minutes to achieve an 80% charge (when the car is stationary).
The Outlander PHEV can even be used as an emergency power source (maximum output 1500 watts) to power small appliances such as a toaster oven, hair dryer, and coffee maker via the second and third-row AC outlets.
The 2023 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV will cost $39,845. Sales in the United States are scheduled to begin in November.
