A World First – The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV
The all-new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) is the world’s first plug-in 4x4 hybrid SUV. With up to a staggering 156mpg and emissions of just 44g/km, a combination of petrol and electricity provides outstanding financial benefit without compromising practicality or all weather driveability.
Low tax benefit
With just 7% Benefit In Kind tax of the list price, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV offers a large saving against a traditional diesel SUVs rate of around 25%. These rates are fixed until the end of the 2015/16 tax year with annual company car tax of around £665 payable on an Outlander PHEV for those who pay 40% tax - over a three year period savings can reach five figures . The fuel benefit is also only 7% instead of a more traditional SUVs 25% - it could be like receiving an annual pay rise of £5,000.
Companies benefit too
With a 100% write down allowance in the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEVs first year of ownership, companies also benefit. National Insurance payments are also massively reduced due to a Benefit In Kind rate of 7%.
Easy convenient charging
Using a 240v/16a supply, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV can be fully charged in under four hours – the increasing number of public charge points can achieve 80% charging in 30mins. Ask for details about the free home charging point fitting scheme. A free app allows fingertip control of many Outlander PHEV features including battery charging to take advantage of lower tariff costs as well as the temperature of the cabin without leaving your lounge or office.
Hybrid technology explained
Using series parallel hybrid technology, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is at its heart an electric vehicle. With twin electric motors the PHEV can travel up to 32 miles in EV mode – a far greater distance than other most hybrids. In this mode there are no emissions or use of petrol. Power is not affected and torque is instant.
Series and Parallel Hybrid modes
If more power is required or the battery charge drops, the traditional engine acts as a generator for series mode. When travelling for longer periods of high speed the Parallel Hybrid mode kicks in. The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV switches between modes seamlessly - you will not notice any differences in transmission, automatically selecting the best mode to use. You can select to switch of the hybrid mode and save it for a later part of your journey such as city driving.
