Recognising early on that little or no engine noise can lead to increased awareness of wind and road noise Mitsubishi has worked hard to insulate the PHEV further. The whole underfloor is covered in sound-deadening material, the front windows are 4mm thicker than usual and the windscreen itself is said to be soundproof. The effect is a remarkably quiet and refined drive.

However with the batteries mounted between the wheels, the centre of gravity has been lowered, meaning the PHEV actually handles better than its petrol or diesel powered cousins. Steers better too thanks to S-AWC (Super-All Wheel ControlDaniel Kim's Lit Motors: The Fully Enclosed electric motorcycle is in testing phase. Read more ... »). Acting much like torque vectoring the system uses the electric motors, anti-lock braking system, Active Stability Control and Active Yaw Control (first seen on the Mitsubishi Evo) to determine which wheel needs the most torque, leaving a very balanced drive.

Summary

From the outside it looks as if Mitsubishi has arrived very late to the hybrid game, but by starting PHEV development from an EV rather than petrol engine standpoint it (technologically at least) has surpassed established players. The Outlander PHEV offers an electric range that most rivals can only dream of and the car simply wants to run on electric power alone for as long as it can, firing up the engine when no other choice remains.
