PHEV Technology

PHEV is a hybrid electric vehicle equipped with a battery that can be recharged by either plugging into an external source of electric power or by its on-board engine and generator. Just like all-electric vehicles, plug-in hybrids discharge cleaner emissions from the tailpipe. Charging the battery from the grid consumes significantly less petrol than using the on-board engine, resulting in fewer CO2 emissions.

Charging the Outlander PHEV is as easy as driving it, while an AC 230V 10A regular charger can take up to 5.5 hours to fully charge the vehicle, a quick charger is perfect for adding mileage quickly for up to 80% capacity in under 25 minutes.

Sharp and Sophisticated Exterior

The exterior of the Outlander PHEV hints at the car’s dynamic styling while also expressing its fun-to-drive SUV spirit. It has a distinctive outline that instils the next-generation eco-car with a unique presence.

The front face enjoys stylish headlamps that feature auto-levelling LED lighting for both high and low beams coupled with LED fog lamps. The practically designed roof rails complement the electronically controlled sunroof with sunshade, allowing to bring in sunlight and fresh air with ease. The rear spoiler has been optimised to further improve aerodynamic performance.

Advanced and Luxurious Interior

The interior has a modern and luxurious cockpit with soft padded surfaces, high-quality leather seats, a lustrous dashboard and centre console and abundant legroom.

Together with other seat functions, the optimal driving position can match the driver’s physique. The integrated overhead console offers a clean view of the ceiling with incorporated cabin lamp, seat belt reminder, passenger airbag cut off indicator and anti-theft sensor. With a dial type switch, the dual-zone auto air conditioner allows both the driver and passenger to adjust cabin temperature separately. Moreover, adjustable vents are provided in the rear console to keep rear passengers comfortable.

Loaded with Features

It is no surprise that the Outlander PHEV comes with an array of features. The Informative Power Meter indicates energy usage, regenerative power, engine power (kW), EV output and more.
