The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is a company car tax marvel. Although it’s based on the regular diesel-engined version of the Outlander, this PHEV model is a petrol-electric hybrid, bringing low CO2 emissions that result in a low benefit-in-kind car tax bracket.
Essentially, it can be driven by the naturally aspirated 2.4-litre petrol engine, by the electric motors and batteries alone, or a combination of the two. Those batteries can be charged on the move by the petrol engine, or the car can be plugged into the mains.
As a result, against conventionally powered rivals such as the Skoda Kodiaq and Nissan X-Trail, the Outlander PHEV will potentially save company car taxpayers thousands of pounds in tax payments. And because it can run on pure electric power, many will be able to travel to work and back after an overnight charge, using no petrol at all
So, is it worth considering over its conventionally powered rivals? Read on over the next few pages to get our in-depth impressions.
