The future of driving is here. A Mitsubishi Plug-in Hybrid gives you an electric driving experience, with the reassurance of a petrol engine, with the power of both when you need it. Plug in, charge up and zip around town electrically with zero tailpipe emissions, or use petrol power for longer Australian-made expeditions with remarkable fuel efficiency. You choose the energy, then enjoy the ride.
Plug-in Hybrid versus other electric cars
ELECTRIC VEHICLE (EV)
A battery supplies energy to an electric motor. The battery is recharged by plugging in to a power source, and can also charge via regenerative braking while driving.
HYBRID VEHICLE (HV)
Fuel supplies energy to an engine that drives the wheels, accompanied by an electric motor. The electric motor is powered by a battery, which receives charge from the traditional engine and regenerative braking while driving.
PLUG-IN HYBRID VEHICLES (PHEV)
Gives you the best of both, with a battery supplying energy to the electric motors, backed up by an engine. The battery is recharged by plugging into a power source, and can also charge via regenerative braking while driving. The engine can also act as a generator to charge the battery while driving, powered by fuel.
No Compromise on Comfort, Space, Style and Safety.
Mitsubishi Plug-in Hybrids offer everything their petrol-only counterparts do. They just do it with the added option of electric power. You'll find the same interior space, the same luggage area, the sleek lines and the safety features you expect. All that's different from the outside is the badge.
Plug In. Go Far.
Mitsubishi Plug-in Hybrids have front and rear electric motors and a petrol engine. It means you don’t have to worry about looking for a charge when your battery gets low, offering peace-of-mind for Australian conditions.
Charge Your Way
Mitsubishi Plug-in Hybrids are perfectly suited for at-home charging. A full charge takes just 7 hours when plugged-in to a regular 10 amp power point, ideal for taking advantage of overnight off-peak energy prices. You have a full battery in the morning for your daily commute, while avoiding a trip to the petrol bowser.
You can also charge the battery while driving, giving you the flexibility to choose when and where you use your energy away from home.
When opting for dedicated Electric Vehicle charging, it takes just 4 hours to fully charge from an AC fast charger, or as little as 25 minutes to charge to 80% capacity with a DC rapid charger.
