Mitsubishi Outlander Aspire PHEV aims to blend frugality with SUV functionality
Mitsubishi claims it has created the first plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (hence the PHEV name designation) in an SUV body, with the Outlander PHEV. We’re putting the top-spec Aspire version though it’s paces and, so far we’ve found that the intelligent drive line offers drivers a number of different settings, including a “charge” button that tops up the battery while the petrol engine is running, along with a variety of methods that can harvest and conserve electrical energy. All of this tech is of course wrapped up in a package that offers typical family friendly SUV practicality. Full review coming soon.
