Mitsubishi EV, Hybrid and PHEV
What's the Difference Between a Mitsubishi EV, Hybrid, and PHEV?
If you're looking to make the switch to a New Mitsubishi Electric or Hybrid vehicle but are still unfamiliar with the difference between them, our dealership will gladly provide a crash course. As the preeminent Mitsubishi electric car dealer in the Halifax, NS area, we at Steele Mitsubishi know a thing or two about alternative powertrains, and we encourage our customers to pay us a visit to see what all the fuss is about for themselves.
An Introduction to Electric Vehicles with Steele Mitsubishi
Firstly, electric vehicles (EVs) operate entirely on electricity, unlike their alternative counterparts. In other words, you won't find a traditional internal combustion engine under an EV's hood, which means a much quieter ride and riveting acceleration. Mitsubishi's venture into eco-friendly, fully electric automation began with the i-MiEV, a five-seat hatchback that hit the market over a decade ago. For more on EVs and their astounding capability, get in touch with our Mitsubishi Dealership today.
A Word on Mitsubishi Hybrids & PHEVs
Hybrid vehicles differ from EVs in that their powertrains comprise both an internal combustion engine and an electric motor, which can either work in tandem or independently. Traditionally, the electric motor powers the hybrid vehicle at lower speeds, with the traditional engine taking over at higher speeds for peak efficiency.
As for PHEVs - short for Plug-In Hybrid Vehicles - these cars' batteries can be plugged in for a full charge, which gives them a leg up on standard hybrids in terms of fuel efficiency. By letting your PHEV charge overnight, you can optimize its range to the fullest and spare yourself the expense of regular visits to a filling station. As far as our dealership is concerned, the long-running Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV SUV leads the proverbial charge. In addition to its eco-friendly powertrain, the Outlander PHEV boasts the smoothest of rides and all the tech amenities the modern motorist covets.
