The Top Gear car review:Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV
Final thoughts and pick of the range
Kudos to Mitsubishi for making a technically impressive PHEV, and for putting it on sale at what looks to have been precisely the right moment. It’s tricky not to recommend in many ways, because it’s the only car of its kind that really exists. If you’re a business user with a couple of kids, you might struggle to fit your brood in a 330e or similar. And because the tax savings are so massive you really ought to have a PHEV…so Outlander it is.
As for the rest of us – it’s the same old PHEV story. If it fits your lifestyle – the plugging-in to charge and so-on – then go ahead. If it doesn’t, and if you don’t think you’d ever offset the added cost of the Outlander PHEV, something like a petrol-engined Skoda Kodiaq would do you.
