Comfortably the best-selling plug-in vehicle in the UK, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has been revamped in 2018 with new design, technical updates and slightly improved range and battery. Its competitive price point for an SUV and tax advantages that helped make it so successful broadly remain, but regular charging is a must to achieve low running costs and validate its green credentials.

Charging Details

Charging time for a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

The table below shows the estimated time to charge your Outlander PHEV from empty to full. For rapid charging, we show the time to charge from 20% - 80%, as charging tends to slow outside this range to protect the battery.

3.6kW Home / Work 4 h 7 m/h
7kW Home / Work / Public Locations 4 h 7 m/h
22kW Work / Public Locations 4 h 7 m/h
50kW Public Locations 30 min 21 m/30 min
150kW Public Locations 30 min 21 m/30 min

* Based on Pod Point estimates, charging time can differ based on the ambient temperature, the state of the battery (e.g. empty or half full) and variation in charging rate. Max charging rate may also be limited by the vehicle.
** Range per hour is the number of miles you can expect to get from an hour of charging at the relevant rate.

CO2 emissions from UK grid electricity usage (Pod Point calculated)* 61 gCO2/km

* This metric estimates the environmental impact of driving your electric vehicle based on how the electricity that powers your car is generated. We take the average carbon intensity across the UK grid measured throughout 2021 to calculate the expected grams of CO2 emitted per 1 km driven. The actual number will vary by region, when you charge (e.g. carbon intensity is usually lower overnight period) and whether your electricity comes from more renewable sources than the average.
