Long Termers: Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV GH4hS

By / 3 years ago / New Cars / No Comments

So my advice would be to get a wallbox installed so you don’t end up with a draughty house. Some other interesting behavioural changes: even when on petrol I now drive ridiculously slowly. It’s as if the guilt of using the combustion engine forces me to potter everywhere, barely revving the thing at all.

One thing that has irritated is the flap which houses the plug sockets keeps opening when I’m on the move. The spring seems to have gone in the hinge. But when the PHEV is charged up, the colder days mean you can live with the aircon off and that adds a good five miles to the overall range of the car, for which about 25 miles has been my best.

That’s a decent commute to and from home done on EV power every day, if you can charge it, and would save a fortune over two or three years if you consider a car doing 50 miles a day at 40mpg would use £7 in fuel daily, whereas a full battery charge costs about £1.
