2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has had a fantastic reception in the United States, and the fanfare isn’t showing any sign of slowing down. The fuel-efficient SUV was recently named the “Best Green Winter Vehicle” by the New England Motor Press Association.

It isn’t easy to make a vehicle that can handle the coldest winters nature has to offer. The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, however, aces every test with ease, all while being one of the most efficient SUVs in the industry.

The Outlander PHEV features Super All-Wheel Control that improves traction and provides drivers with more control. Several built-in safety features that aid in maintaining traction include Traction Control Logic and Active Stability Control.

A model built for the harshest winters, the Outlander PHEV includes plenty of standard features designed to combat ice, slush, and snow. De-icers on the front and rear windshields keep the driver’s vision clear, even in the strongest storms. Heated side mirrors ensure that seeing to the side of the vehicle is no problem at all. Heated front seats offer premium comfort that makes hitting the road on cold winter days much more manageable.

Driver-assist safety systems keep an eye on things around the vehicle. Blind Spot Warning and Lane Change Assist are just a few of the active safety technologies designed to help protect drivers from unexpected dangers.

The Future of Mitsubishi Is the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

Here in the United States, we have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. This all-wheel-drive plug-in hybrid crossover is one of only a few of its kind, and it represents the future of Mitsubishi.

According to Mitsubishi, the Outlander PHEV should begin arriving at dealerships in February or March — just in time for spring driving. This model has already been on sale in Europe for a few years now and is one of the most popular hybrid models there.

When it goes on sale, Mitsubishi has said we should expect to see around a 22-mile all-electric driving range. This should be long enough to cover some drivers’ daily commutes, meaning they won’t have to use the gasoline engine very much. In addition, it will be one of the few hybrids available that come with all-wheel drive.

As the popularity of hybrids and electric cars continue to grow, it is clear that this is what the world, and Americans, want to drive. We want to be able to drive past the gas station and rely more on alternative fuel sources.
