In the early beginning of this year, Mitsubishi upgraded its plug-in hybrid Outlander PHEV, improving its all-electric range by... one mile, as per NEDC.

The all-electric range has been increased (from up to 32 miles to 33 miles) thanks to the car's 12 kWh battery with the drive battery output improved by 10%, so Outlander PHEV can accelerate to up to 100 kph in 11 seconds, while using 4.5% less fuel and lowering CO2 emissions by 1g/km.

Also upgraded for 2017 Outlander PHEV is adjustable regenerative braking, which is controlled via the steering wheel paddles to further enhance the driving experience. The driver can opt for a new 'EV Priority Mode' that lets the driver optimise EV miles, without the engine starting - providing the battery is sufficiently charged. 

Now, DC CHAdeMO charging is faster than before - the battery can be charged to up to 80%, but it will no longer take you half an hour to do it. Charging time has been reduced by 5 minutes (from 30 minutes to 25).  

Furthermore, safety features, various in-vehicle systems and assistive devices to make the driver feel comfortable and safe, have also been improved.

Buyers can also decide to purchase their Outlander PHEV in a brand new 'Cool Silver' shade.
