What’s this, then? It’s Mitsubishi’s updated Outlander PHEV, a plug-in hybrid SUV that, according to the official figures, now offers no less than 156mpg and no more than 42g/km of CO2. Of course, we all know the official test cycles don’t really work when it comes to plug-in hybrids, but the Outlander PHEV – pronounced, we discovered, ‘pee-aitch-ee-vee’, not ‘fev’ – remains, on paper at least, quite the eat-cake/have-cake proposition. With an all-electric range of 32 miles, this is, potentially, a burly five-seat 4WD that can function as a full EV during the working week, but won’t leave you with range anxiety if you have to schlep to John O’Groats of a weekend. But you weren’t too impressed with the Outlander PHEV first time round, were you?
