This quick guide has been prepared to help you enjoy safe and comfortable driving.
This quick guide is a short version of the owner’s manual. For details, please refer to the owner’s manual.
This quick guide covers a range of specifications and manufacturer’s options, so some of the descriptions may not apply to your OUTLANDER Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle.

A few tips to get you started!

Congratulations on purchasing your new Outlander Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle! Here’s a list of a few important things you need to know:

  1. When you get home, make sure you plug-in your Outlander and set to charge overnight to take advantage of off-peak electricity rates after 11pm. You can check the remaining time until fully charged on the instrument centre display panel.
  2. Your vehicle takes 91 unleaded fuel, available at any service station.
  3. Your first service is at 1,500km or within one month. But don’t worry if you forget, we’ll be in contact to remind you!
  4. To download your Smartphone application, simply visit Google play or apple app store and search ‘Outlander PHEV’.
  5. Only have your Outlander serviced by a recognised Mitsubishi Motors dealer, for a list of dealers visit mmnz .co. nz/find-a-dealer /.
Fuel saving tips

We’ve also put together some top fuel saving tips to help you get the most out your Outlander Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle.

  1. Keep the Battery Charged: Keeping the battery charged ensures that you will use as much electricity and as little petrol as possible, saving you fuel and money. It will also help to maximize your Electric Vehicle driving range.
  2. Off-Peak Charging: To take maximum advantage of owning the Outlander Plug-In Hybrid be sure to set your charge times to when electric power rates are at their lowest. Check with your electricity provider for your ‘Off-Peak’ details.
  3. Warm up or cool the car down before driving while the car is still connected to the house power supply. This will reduce the power drain on the battery when you start driving and maximize your Electric Vehicle range.
  4. Use the seat heaters to warm you up as they use less battery power than the car heater.
  5. Turn the air conditioning off when not needed.
  6. Use Economy Mode: This mode maximizes the vehicle’s fuel economy and can be activated by simply pressing the ‘ECO’ button. The economy mode limits other aspects of the vehicle’s performance, such as acceleration rate and air-conditioning to save fuel.
  7. Accelerate keeping the ‘Power’ needle in the green range and the petrol engine will not start.
  8. Avoid Hard Braking: Anticipate stopping and brake gently or moderately. This allows the vehicle’s regenerative braking system to recover energy from the vehicle’s forward motion and store it as electricity. Hard braking causes the vehicle to use its conventional friction brakes, which do not recover energy. When using regenerative braking, the ‘negative’ paddle increases the amount of regenerative braking and therefore increases the braking force on the vehicle.
  9. Only use Lid Lock Mode when additional traction or stability is required.
  10. Display Screens: Familiarise yourself with the car’s hybrid information display so you can monitor how much energy is being used.

Plug-in Hybrid EV System

What is the Plug-in Hybrid EV System?

  • In the EV Drive mode, the vehicle is driven only by the electric motors, just like an electric vehicle, over a certain distance, using the electricity stored in the drive battery.
  • Once the drive battery charge is low or when powerful acceleration is needed, the vehicle operates in the Series Hybrid mode.
  • When high-speed driving is needed, the vehicle is driven by the engine in the Parallel Hybrid mode.
  • The high-performance motors greatly reduce noise and vibration while driving and provide powerful acceleration.
  • The regenerative brake system automatically starts to charge the drive battery when the accelerator pedal is released.
  • The battery can be charged via the AC220-2Li0 V charge port. If your vehicle has an optional quick charge port, the battery can be charged at a CHA demo* charging station.
    CHA demo is a quick charging standard for EVs that is promoted by Japan for adoption as an international standard.
EV Drive MODE

The vehicle is driven only by the motors using the electricity stored in the drive battery.
MITSUBISHI MOTORS Outlander PHEV Car 01

Series Hybrid Mode

Once the drive battery level is low or when powerful thrust is required such as during rapid acceleration or hill climbing, the vehicle is driven only by the motors using engine generated electricity.
MITSUBISHI MOTORS Outlander PHEV Car 02

Regenerative Brake System
  • Motion energy is converted into electric energy using the motor as a power generator.
  • Then a braking force generates and converted electric energy will be charged to the drive battery.
  • The intensity of regenerative brake can be selected from among two levels using the selector lever.
  • The intensity can be selected from among six levels using the paddles.
  • If a large regenerative braking force is applied by using the selector lever or the regenerative braking level selector (paddle), the brake lamps will be automatically illuminated.
    MITSUBISHI MOTORS Outlander PHEV Car 07

Parallel Hybrid Mode

In high-speed driving when the engine runs efficiently, the vehicle is driven by the engine and is assisted by the motors.
