For a long time, hybrid technology has been relegated to small hatchbacks and sedans. However, the industry is starting to adapt and add these features to larger, more attractive models, for example the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. If you don’t know much about it, here are a few great things about the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.
New Option for Buyers
Before the Outlander PHEV, if you wanted a hybrid crossover, you would need to spend a small fortune and buy a luxury brand.
The Outlander PHEV is more than just a hybrid. It is a plug-in hybrid and can drive using electric power alone. When fully charged with a full tank of gas, it offers an estimated electric range of 22 miles and a total range of 310 miles.
The Outlander PHEV is equipped with paddle shifters that work with a battery regeneration system. The driver can select the resistance level between 0 and 5, with 5 being the strongest. With the highest resistance, the paddle shifters alone can almost bring the vehicle to a complete stop.
If you need more cargo space than what a hatchback can offer, the Outlander PHEV comes with 30.4 cubic feet behind the second row. Fold down the rear seats to take advantage of 62.8 cubic feet of volume.
Experience the 2018 Outlander PHEV for yourself when you stop by Bell Mitsubishi for a test drive.
Striving to better the world is something every company should do. It should come as no surprise that Mitsubishi supports The Asher House so it can help more dogs find the homes they deserve. Mitsubishi donated a brand new 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross crossover to help Lee Asher and his team on their mission.
Asher first set out to help dogs find loving homes in 2017. He quit his job and raised enough money to purchase an RV. He travelled throughout the United States to hold adoption events and help shelters however he could. It’s his ambition that inspired Mitsubishi Motors to support his cause with a new Eclipse Cross.
“Lee started with a passion when he created The Asher House and it has become a movement to help raise awareness for rescue animals and shelters across the country; Asher’s bold decision to take action on his ambition is admirable and we’re privileged to be able to help support his mission,” said Mark Chaffin, COO of Mitsubishi Motors North America.
Since beginning his journey, Asher has helped 146 dogs find homes with loving owners. Mitsubishi Motors remains committed to assisting The Asher House by supporting local rescue events and gatherings. Asher plans on using the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross to travel the country with his team and dogs.
We at Bell Mitsubishi are happy to see our brand supporting a worthwhile cause. If you’d like to support The Asher House too, visit the website.
