2015 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has been named The Motor Report’s Best Buy of 2015 after the publication spent “countless hours” comparing the cars on its Top Ten Best Buys 2015.

The Outlander PHEV, which is getting a new facelift this year, is one of our best family offerings by Mitsubishi Motors. It’s the world’s first plug-in SUV, with an electric range of about 50 kilometers (31 miles) to help families make fewer trips to the pump.

The Motor Report claims that after tracking fuel consumption over a month of use on regional roads, including regular longer runs, the Outlander PHEV averaged 3.8 liters/100km.  This comes out to be about 61 miles per gallon.

The Motor Report also applauded its versatile packaging, performance, and value. The Motor Report says that, “this very clever piece of advanced EV technology not only establishes a new affordable benchmark for sustainable motoring, but, by packaging these technologies into an SUV, Mitsubishi engineers have moved the goal posts significantly in drivability, ease-of-ownership, and practicality.”
