Mitsubishi Commercial Outlander Goes Green With PHEV Version

Mitsubishi has started taking orders for the 2019 Outlander PHEV Commercial in the United Kingdom. It’s priced from £25,113 ($32,520/€28,562) with the local Plug-In Van Grant, but excludes tax.

The brand’s new commercial vehicle has sacrificed the rear seats for a flat loading area that’s 1,650 mm (65 in) long, 1,000 mm (39 in) wide and 800 mm (31 in) tall. The maximum payload capacity is 510 kg (1,124 lbs).

Based on the Juro trim level, the Outlander PHEV Commercial comes with standard 18-inch alloy wheels, reversing camera, heated seats and heated windscreen. The touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone compatibility, Bluetooth and DAB radio is also included in the equipment list.

Just like the regular Outlander PHEV, the Commercial uses a 2.4-liter Atkinson cycle petrol engine and two electric motors, one on each axle. The 165 PS (163 hp / 121 kW) combined output allows for a 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration of 10.5 seconds and a 170 km/h (106 mph) top speed.

The four-wheel drive commercial vehicle has a WLTP-rated combined fuel economy of 139 mpg UK (2.0 lt/100 km / 116 mpg US) and a zero-emission driving range of 45 km (28 miles).

Drivers can select between three driving modes called Normal, Snow and Lock, which optimize the AWD-system accordingly. Mitsubishi promises improved performance and efficiency, smoother and quieter ride and sharper steering courtesy of the quicker steering rack, new shock absorbers and upgraded vehicle dynamics system.

    It’s a wagon. Typical family wagon.

      Not a family wagon if it doesn’t actually fit a family though – it only has two seats so it is classified as a ‘van’.

        True that for this particular model, I was referring to it’s overa shape.

    I’m wondering, who buys this type of vehicle against bigger panel vans?

  • Matt

    Exactly what input has Renault had in this car? Absolutely zero.

    Mitsubishi needs to either invest properly in its cars or just fold up and let go.

    I’m leasing the 2018 Outlander PHEV (non-commercial) and like it. My daily work commute is relatively short at about 30 miles (round trip) and I can charge at work. I would never recommend this vehicle for commercial use. The battery range is just too low and on gas it does dismal on MPGs.
