Maximum driving range: 519 Miles (824 km).
Range on battery alone: 32.3 miles (52 km).
The top speed is only 105 MPH, but you can’t legally drive that fast in most countries.
Charge time can be as little as 30 minutes (to 80% of its capacity) using CHAdeMO, or it can be fully charged in 5 hours using a normal 230 volt outlet at 10 amps.
As for North America, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV you will not be available for purchase before 2015.

“The reason for this vehicle being introduced in 2015 rather than in 2014 is because we have received overwhelming demand from Japan and Europe and the battery supply unfortunately cannot keep up with the demand,” said Mitsubishi communications representative Amanda Savercool in our September 24 update.
