Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is a medium-sized SUV/crossover that is powered by a combination of a 2.0-litre petrol engine and an electric motor. It has been the UK’s best-selling plug-in hybrid vehicle since it went on sale in 2014.

The plug-in hybrid version of the Outlander is by far the biggest-selling version of the model in the UK. There is also a regular petrol model available – we will be building a separate page for this model, so check back soon.

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has received mostly average to good reviews from the UK media. The car has now been on the market with minimal changes for five years, and although it was considered ground-breaking when new, other manufacturers have very much caught up in recent years.

The Outlander PHEV has received praise for its low running and ownership costs, but it has been criticised for falling behind the best vehicles in its class for comfort and driving dynamics.
