The Outlander is considered the best-selling hybrid-electric car in the world, within the Plug-in Hybrid category that combines a petrol engine with an electric motor powered by a rechargeable battery. It is worth noting that the beginning of this model came in 2001 in Japan, and today we are testing the third generation of it which debuted at the Paris show in 2012 as a 2013 model.
Outlander depends on a Plug-in hybrid system that combines a 2.4-liter, 4-cylinder petrol engine, with two electric motors, to produce 224 hp of total power, and it works with a four-wheel-drive system.
In the event that the electric motors are charged with a 230-volt charger, the entire process requires 5 hours and a half, However, the Outlander is the world’s first plug-in hybrid electric vehicle equipped with DC Fast Charging —capable of reaching 80% capacity in just 25 minutes, and it is possible to drive this car using electricity only up to a distance of 55 km at a speed of no more than 135 km / h.
