In an effort to support the UAE Vision 2021, Al Habtoor Motors, official distributor of Mitsubishi Motors in the UAE, has launched a dedicated Green Zone at the Sheikh Zayed Road showroom to showcase the unparalleled capabilities of the Outlander PHEV.
A testament to its constant evolution, brilliant engineering and technological innovation the award-winning Outlander PHEV will be displayed at Al Habtoor’s Green Zone along with its charger where showroom visitors will get up close and personal with the world’s best-selling PHEV SUV.
Launched for the first time in the Middle East at the 2019 Dubai International Motor Show, the Outlander PHEV is the immediate solution for the UAE to reduce greenhouse gas without the need for infrastructural changes. The remarkable PHEV technology ensures zero fuel consumption and zero CO₂ emissions during all-electric driving.
“The Outlander PHEV paves the way to a new era of sustainable mobility and the Green Zone is our next step in our commitment to uphold the vision of the UAE government to step up the use of cleaner and sustainable energy.”, said C.V. Ravin, General Manager Sales – Mitsubishi, Al Habtoor Motors.
The Outlander PHEV employs two electric motors, one at each axle and a powerful 2.4-litre Atkinson-cycle petrol engine with enhanced fuel efficiency and improved noise reduction that work together to optimize performance according to driving preferences. Working together, the twin motors and petrol engine outperform a 3.0-litre petrol engine.
PHEV is a hybrid electric vehicle equipped with a battery that can be recharged by either plugging it into an external source of electric power, or by its on-board engine and generator. Just like all-electric vehicles, plug-in hybrids discharge cleaner emissions from the tailpipe having sent power to the generators powering the electricity grid of the vehicle. Charging the battery from the grid consumes significantly less petrol than using the on-board engine, resulting in fewer CO2 emissions.
By synchronizing the twin motors and the engine, EV, Series Hybrid and Parallel driving modes are seamlessly changed for optimized low CO2 emissions experience. The quiet, smooth and zero-emission EV mode is ideal for daily commute, the Outlander PHEV can achieve best speed of 135 km/h while utilizing the electric motors only.
Series Hybrid mode is activated when the battery charge is running low and/or the vehicle needs more power for acceleration, the engine operates as a generator to supply electricity to the twin motors.
Parallel mode engages at high speed driving using the engine with assistance from the motors when extra power is required while simultaneously charging the battery.
The newly introduced Battery Management features provide utmost liberty to choose between Save mode, where the engine maintains battery charge level for later use. While the Charge mode will keep charging the battery, the EV Priority mode will only use the battery until charge drops to an extremely low level.
Also new to the Outlander PHEV is the Twin Motor 4WD feature which allows to select Normal, Sand and Lock modes depending on road conditions. The new separate Sport Mode switch is available for quicker response and agile maneuverability.
