Prices announced for Mitsubishi’s world-first plug-in hybrid SUV

UK prices for the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV – the world’s first plug-in hybrid SUV – have been announced.

The PHEV range starts at £28,249 for the entry-level GX3h, which is the same as the equivalent Outlander diesel GX3 auto.

Along with laying claim to being the only plug-in hybrid on the market not carrying a price premium for its hybrid technology, the Japanese firm also says that the Outlander PHEV is the most practical vehicle that qualifies for the Government’s £5,000 Plug-in Car Grant, with 5 seats, 4WD and a large (463 litre) boot. The car’s ultra-low CO2 emissions of 44 g/km also means there’s no Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) payable.

Other more highly specified variants of the Outlander PHEV include the GX4h at £32,899 and the £34,999 GX4hs.

The hybrid system comprises a 2.0-litre petrol engine fitted with Mitsubishi’s Valve Timing Electronic Control and twin 80 bhp electric motors – one powering each axle – hooked up to a high-capacity 12.0 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. This results in a claimed official economy figure of 148 mpg, with the PHEV able drive on electric-only propulsion for up to 32.5 miles.
