Field work

I grant it’s a niche pursuit, but if you, like me, enjoy driving your car into the middle of a big field, better to appreciate the majesty of nature and so forth, the Outlander PHEV is very much the car for you.

Yes, there are plenty of 4x4s out there that’ll pick their way across a muddy meadow (with appropriate permissions from the landowner, obvs), but many fewer that’ll do it in silky electric silence.

A rowling V8 may be all very well when you’re giving it Maximum Beans on a Challenging B-Road. But if you wish to luxuriate in the gentle sounds and dungy smells of the great outdoors, without disturbing the beavers and the condors and the like, the Outlander PHEV’s battery-powered bumbling is just the ticket.
