Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-In, it was time for plug-in hybrid

The Vortex environmental and commitment of the authorities and thus manufacturers to develop more efficient vehicles and sustainable does not stop. Large SUV bets have given way to more restrained, urban and efficient, among other reasons, their use and costly maintenance. Mitsubishi had it right with the launch of its next-generation Outlander, knowing that many of its international interests go through the development of an ultra-efficient mechanical run by a plug-in hybrid.

The new Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-In Hybrid will benefit from a lithium-ion battery that can be plugged into any conventional outlet. Because it will have an electric range of 50 kilometers and can cover up to 60 miles on a very small consumption of 1 liter of gasoline. Very interesting is the fact that their total autonomy to rise to 800 km with full fuel tank and batteries fully charged, which is much to consider and fairly good for an SUV of its nature and size.

The best results and lower consumption of optimizing get refills of lithium ion batteries, and always trying to get this energy is fully charged.

mitsubishi-outlander-2012Another point that we should not overlook is their tax burden, as the Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-In Hybrid could benefit from subsidies, tax exemptions or access to restricted areas to low-polluting vehicles, not to mention the advantage of the fact able to cover most or nearly all urban trips in electric mode, using even the presence of free charging points at work (for instance). It is said that emissions will be approved in just 50 g / km.

Together we talk about a mechanism composed of a gasoline engine with 16 valves and two synchronous electric 94 hp and 80 hp on front and rear respectively. Besides the pure electric mode could work in series, using the combustion engine only to recharge the batteries and moving Driven by electric motors and in parallel, taking advantage of the three engines according to driving conditions or the need for traction and power at all times.

Will be interesting to assess its position in the market once we know the final price that dealers will be launched next year, you must first occur in society after summer at the Paris Salon. We think that this technology more expensive the product, but since we’re talking about a mid-range SUV-high and the benefits in the medium and long term effects of this technology, it looks like it will become one of the most interesting mechanics to be launched dealers the new Mitsubishi Outlander.
