Rugged, Efficient, and Appealing the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV SEL AWC


I had an absolutely fantastic time behind the wheel of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV SEL AWC. From navigating the streets of the Washington DC metropolitan area to cruising through the scenic landscapes of Maryland, the Outlander showcased its versatility and performance.

One of the standout features of the Outlander PHEV is its plug-in hybrid technology, allowing for a seamless transition between electric and hybrid modes. I appreciated the ability to charge the electric battery and utilize features like battery save mode, which proved to be convenient during my drives.

The Outlander’s striking red diamond paint added to its allure, turning heads wherever I went. Whether I was exploring the Northeast Virginia area or making a stop at Walmart, the Outlander’s sleek design never failed to impress.

Inside the cabin, the Outlander offers a range of features designed to enhance the driving experience. From Apple CarPlay integration to wireless application capability, the Outlander provides modern connectivity options that keep you connected on the go.

With a base price of $46,295 and options like the SEL package, the Outlander PHEV delivers exceptional value for its price point. With a delivered price of $51,835, including the SEL package, the Outlander offers a compelling package of performance, technology, and style.

I also had a chance to speak with a spokesperson from Mitsubishi about a number of questions I had and their response was “ “We very much see the Outlander Plug-in Hybrid as the right technology at the right time. Along those lines, though, we do believe that many of our customers’ next vehicles may well be a full battery-electric, so our intention from the outset was to produce the most electric-like PHEV on the market. Many of the operations built into the vehicle support this, including available DC fast-charging and near-one-pedal operation with our industry-exclusive Innovative Pedal.

We include a number of modes for both powertrain operation – auto, charge, save, EV – so drivers can choose the mode that best fits their need and driving scene, and chassis control – Normal, Tarmac, Gravel, Snow, Mud.  You’d generally choose “EV” if you’re driving in town or in heavy traffic, “save” if you’re on the freeway and want to save that battery charge, “charge” to bring battery charge up to prepare for EV driving, or “auto” if you just want to leave the car to make its own decisions based on where and how you’re driving.  The other modes are designed for drivers to fine-tune the Super-All Wheel Control all-wheel drive system depending on the road condition.I hope this helps in your decision for your next SUV, in our opinion the Outlander is an exceptional choice.
