The Outlander PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) will be available in five trim levels: the base G, the G Safety Package fitted with MMC's "e-Assist" (Japan-market name) advanced safety technology system, the G Navi Package, which comes with on-board navigation and other features, the G Premium Package, which features a RockfordFosgate® Premium Sound System and leather-upholstered seats for extra comfort, and the built-to-order E.
Mitsubishi has made state-of-the-art safety technology more accessible for anyone who wants the Outlander PHEV. The acclaimed e-Assist advanced safety technology package - now installed in over 80% of new Outlander models in Japan - is available as standard equipment from the trim level of G Safety Package and higher.
The Plug-in Hybrid EV System was developed based on the EV technologies used in the i-MiEV and MINICAB-MiEV for use in mid-size and larger passenger cars that require longer cruising ranges. Key components such as the battery and motor are constantly monitored, and integrated control is maintained over the engine, Twin Motor 4WD, regenerative brakes, air conditioning, and so on to ensure safe, comfortable, and fuel efficient driving.
