The way that we power our vehicles is changing. In the not-so-distant future, there will likely be more electric cars than conventional oil vehicles available on the market. In the meantime, a great way to benefit from the best of both worlds is to get behind the wheel of a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle like the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV available in San Jose, CA. A vehicle like this allows you to benefit from having a conventional powertrain for long-distance drives or to operate in an electric-only mode for short distances like your daily commute. If you think you might be interested in one of your own, be sure to check out our online inventory here at San Jose Mitsubishi.
As a plug-in hybrid, this version of the Mitsubishi Outlander is powered by both a conventional 2.4L 4-cylinder engine and a pair of twin electric motors. Thanks to this combination, the vehicle is able to achieve ultra-low CO2 emissions, lessening your impact on the environment. Perhaps even more exciting than that, however, is what it means for your vehicle’s fuel efficiency. The PHEV system knows when to switch between electric and gas power to deliver a fuel-economy rating of 74 MPGe.
You can, however, take your driving mode into your own hands. The vehicle offers five different selectable modes to choose from, which will adjust settings to fit the type of driving you’re looking to perform. Snow and Sport modes are joined by three EV modes that provide the right amount of efficiency for a given situation. One of these enables you to drive on pure electricity for up to 24 miles, which is the vehicle’s electric range on a full charge. With a traditional 120-volt outlet, you can achieve a full charge in 9 hours.
Front and center on the interior cabin’s dashboard within the 2022 Outlander PHEV is the Mitsubishi Smartphone Link Display Audio system. The system provides all manner of features and options, chief among them being integrated Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. You’ll be able to connect your smartphone right to your vehicle’s display audio system and take advantage of things like navigation, entertainment, and even Siri if your smartphone is an Apple.
If all this adds up to a vehicle you think you might be interested in, be sure to peruse our available inventory here on the site or give us a call at the sales desk to inquire about availability.
