Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-in Hybrid The Same Price As Its Diesel Sibling

Mitsubishi’s five-seat plug-in hybrid Outlander Plug-in Hybrid hasn’t had an easy time of it in its short life. Beset by manufacturing problems and recalls — the most recent of which was last week to address a software fault which could incorrectly track how full the battery pack is — the car is now almost a year behind its original launch schedule.
The UK-spec Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV goes on sale this spring at the same price as a diesel version.

But for those who are fed up paying a premium for plug-in capability, the news that you’ll be able to buy an Outlander PHEV for the same price as a similarly-specced diesel Outlander might make the wait worthwhile.
Headline price: £28,249, after £5,000 grant

Officially launched last week for the UK market, the entry-level GX3h Outlander PHEV will go on sale later this spring for just £33,249 before government grants. Eligible for the £5,000 government grant, the effective purchase price is reduced to £28,249 — or just £3,000 more than the high-spec Nissan LEAF Tekna.

At this trim level however, you’ll get the basic plug-in hybrid drivetrain functionality without any remote telematics or on-board timer functions for climate control or charging. You do get cruise control, leather steering wheel, rear privacy glass, 18-inch alloy wheels, electrically-heated folding rearview mirrors, dual-zone climate control and bluetooth connectivity.

Like the LEAF however, there are three different trim levels for the Outlander PHEV: the GX3h, GX4h, and GX4hs, which mimic the diesel versions of the Outlander SUV in terms of trim and specification.
