Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV GT S-AWC


2019 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV recognized as ‘Best In Class Green Vehicle Hybrid or PHEV’ by the New England Motor Press Association.

The Outlander has been dramatically improved. It now offers a variety of powertrains and technology features that distinguish it in its SUV segment. I have been eagerly anticipating the electric version of the Outlander. I was delighted to spend a week with the Outlander PHEV GT S-AWC.

The S-AWC is a unique plug-in hybrid. It features a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 117 horsepower and 137 pound-feet of torque. It also has two 60 kilowatt motors in the front and in the rear, which gives it a combined 190 horsepower. It is an EPA rated 25 MPG with gasoline only driving. However, it has an MPGe rating of 74. There is also a 12-kilowatt battery onboard. This PHEV has CHAdeMO DC fast charging capability. I observed 25 to 30 minutes roughly to get to an 80 percent charge.

Mitsubishi advertisers a 22-mile range on all-electric driving. There are three different driving modes. You could drive with hybrid only, or electric-only, or you could also drive with battery charging mode. The base price on the Outlander PHEV GT, super handling AWC is $42,095. It’s eligible for an almost six-thousand-dollar federal tax credit. When you add state credits it substantially brings down the total price of this vehicle. I really had a blast driving it in the Washington DC metropolitan area. I was able to find a level three DC fast charger at Mom’s Organic Grocery store in Frederick, Maryland.

I found the comfort features to be excellent. I also really enjoyed the paddle shifters. The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has a single-speed transmission. Great technology, great styling, fast charging, and so much more. For more information visit
